Inventories of the assets of the property of Bagno alla Villa, perhaps owned by an aristocratic family such as the Medici or the Gondi, and located in Lucca, north of Florence. The items that appear in the inventory include a large number of clothes and personal accessories (including linens, combs, perfumes, coats, underwear, towels and handkerchiefs) described in great detail; household accessories (including kitchen equipment, a coffee grinder, carpets, paintings, mirrors, decorative plates, and pillows); furniture (including chests of drawers, chairs, tables, beds and bedroom furniture); and silverware. There is a separate inventory for each room of the house and, in certain cases, there are descriptions of the items that can be found in large pieces of furniture, such as cupboards. There are also notes for items that were not on site when the inventory was drafted (for example, a table was sent out to be repaired).
