Rape of women and girls remains a widespread form of aggression against a civilian population during war and often the belief is that the universal condemnation and prosecution of these crimes is a relatively recent phenomenon.

However, critical representations of sexual violence were already created during the Italian Renaissance. The civic imagery developed in city-republics gives us a unique insight into the revolutionary understanding of gender-based aggression and a forgotten chapter in rape history.
