When Ligurio says to Nicia that "someone like you, who remains
all day in his study, understands those books but is unable to discuss the
things of the world" Lord suggests that this may be the true feelings of
Machiavelli towards Soderini. How Machiavelli felt about Soderini is important
for continuing the allegory. Lord points to Machiavelli's epigram on Soderini to
provide further evidence of Machiavelli's contempt for Soderini:
"The night Piero Soderini died, his soul went to the mouth of Hell, and Pluto
cried out to it: Foolish soul, why Hell? Go to Limbo with the children."
However, in his edition, Allan Gilbert makes the point that many people took the
playful tone (in the Italian, the word for babies is bambini, a perfect rhyme
for Soderini, that "Machiavelli couldn't resist") of the epigram to be full of
bitter contempt. He also states that the tone suggests composition during
Soderini's prosperity, before the return of the Medici. However, Lord also
points to several chapters in the Discourses support his point.
If we continue along with the same allegory, if Nicia is Soderini, then Ligurio
is Machiavelli. Ligurio successfully makes his way into Nicia's house, mirroring
Machiavelli's close personal and political friendship with Soderini. Despite
this friendship, Machiavelli never quite puts his trust and loyalty in Soderini,
much like how Ligurio never bestows his loyalty on Nicia. This reflects the
fundamental dissatisfaction of Machiavelli with the governing of Soderini "and
his hope for the regeneration of a new Florence at the hands of a new and
genuine prince." This can be seen as the renaissance at the end of Mandragola.
Machiavelli and Ligurio both are astute counselors of princes; both are content
to serve the fame of others, or are content to seem content, and both men
believe they are superior to the men they serve.

The role that made Sharon Stone a household name, never before has there been such contention at what was between a women’s legs.
