Giulio Romano paints The Fire in the Borgo after designs by Raphael.
Leonardo da Vinci applied to join the confraternity of S. Giovanni dei Fiorentini in Rome, probably in a moment of depression at a court which had little or no consideration for him, in the hope that a religious institution could provide him with quiet shelter and affectionate assistance, and to which he could leave all his possessions, just as he was leaving drawings and other belongings to another religious institution in Florence, the hospital of S. Maria Novella, in which he was accommodated at the time he was working on the Battle of Anghiari.

Luca Landucci refers in the _Florentine Diary_ to a terrifying storm like the one in 1456: > At midday, there was such a tempest of wind at Dicomano that it exceeded everything ever heard of ... it uprooted many walnut-trees, olive trees, and oaks, and took off nearly the whole roof of the church of Vico ... At Poggio Marino it did great damage.
