Weddings in fifteenth-century Italian courts were grand, sumptuous affairs that often required guests to listen attentively to lengthy orations given in Latin. D'Elia's focus on the form and content of wedding orations leads to fascinating observations on fifteenth-century views on marriage as a political, economic, and social institution, as a source of sexual pleasure, and, surprisingly, as a bond between equals.

Knowledge of court dances has survived better than that of country dances as they were collected by dancing masters in manuscripts and later in printed books. The earliest surviving manuscripts that provide detailed dance instructions are from 15th century Italy. The dances in these manuals are extremely varied in nature. They range from slow, stately dances (bassadance, pavane, almain) to fast, lively dances (galliard, coranto, canario).

The appearance of dance masters in Renaissance Italy reveals a new .

The appearance of dance masters in Renaissance Italy reveals a new attitude toward dancing in the great courts of the region. Just how and when the dance masters of the Renaissance appeared cannot be determined, but by the mid-1400s many of Italy's wealthiest, most powerful noble and merchant families already had a resident dance master. A lineage of distinguished masters in fifteenth-century Italy flourished from the training of the early dance theorist and master Domenico da Piacenza (c. 1400–c. This later book, The Art and Instruction of Good Dancing, contained instructions about the music that should accompany these dances.

Fifteenth-century Italy produced the earliest known treatises on the art of the dance. These contained the choreographic descriptions and music of composed dances performed by the nobility and the bourgeoisie on public and private occasions. The treatises also provided the first known formulation of a theory of the dance, and set out its basic principles. The authors of the choreographies and their music, in particular two dancing-masters, were concerned that dance be recognised as both art and science. The liberal arts of the time included music and architecture, but not dance or painting.
