Luisa Adele Rosa Maria Von Amman Casati
Birth: Jan. 23, 1881
Milan
Lombardia, Italy
Death: Jun. 1, 1957
London, England

Title: Marchesa

Art Patroness. Born into a wealthy family in Italy, she sponsored and inspired some of the most noted artists and authors of her time, notably in France. A scintillating eccentric, she became notorious for her lavish parties and such habits as walking her pet leopards on diamond-studded leashes. After thirty years of extravagance she became heavily in debt and was forced to move to England, where she died in poverty.

She was married to Camillo, Marquis Casati Stampa di Soncino.
