Isabella De Luca
Isabella is a member of an ancient Bolognese family famed for its production of lawyers and lovers. She decided to break with one half of the family traditions by earning her doctorate in archaeology from the Università di Bologna. On the other hand, she's more than upheld the De Luca honor in relazioni extraconiugali, with rumors involving the son of a Duca, a Conte, and rather scandalously, the wife of a government minister. This last relationship caused enough trouble that Isabella decided to spend the last two years in Egyptian Sudan, exploring the ruins of Napata. Having returned to Europe, she is conducting a series of lectures across Germany, while she waits to hear if passions have cooled enough in Italy.
