  • Alessandra Macinghi Strozzi (1406 – March 2, 1471) was an elite Florentine woman from a political merchant family in the 15th century. Alessandra is best known for her letters, chronicling her fight to stubbornly preserve her family's property and position in Medicean Florence.

Seventy-three letters that she wrote were preserved by her son Filippo Strozzi the Elder and they were compiled and published in 1877 by Cesare Guasti and Alessandra’s letters are currently preserved in the Archivio di stato in Florence.
