the question mark is supposed to symbolise all the confussion Flora faces in the Novel, For example when she is wondering what Count Riorio and her father were ploting, And why Lorenzo il Magnifico wants her to be exiled even though she saved him from assasins
beggining:In the begining of the story we learn about Flora and her place in the Pazzi family. We are opened up to the sceane of Emilio and her first meeting, and then bringing the letter to her father. When they get to her fathers office they over hear the conversation of how the family wishes for Dominica to marry Guiliano Medici and connect the two families.

The Novel is set in the late 1400 in the city of Florence. Where Flora lives with her Pazzi Family In the pazzie palazo
one of many themes I noticed in the novel Primaverawas secrecy and wealth. I believe in the themesecrecy, because of all the plans and plots that thePazzi family make. I also beleive it because of Flora'scharacter; she is different than the other family membersand is very secerative. We can see thistowards the middle of the book when she must live in disgise as Emilio with a Goldsmith Orazio.
I choose the skull picture to symbolise the danger involved in Flora's life, and how she constantly faces life or death situations.
