Lady Giana Gabriella di Milano is a 16th-century Italian woman born in Northern Italy in the early years of the 1500s. As a noblewoman, she has been influenced by the fashions and styles of the nearby courts of both Milan and Mantua. Her husband was once a fabric merchant, travelling much of the known world to trade in beautiful cottons, silks, and wools. Now, since his passing, Giana runs a small fabric supply shop that caters to wealthy noblewomen looking for that special piece that nobody else has.
Giana joined the SCA in 1987, having been born and raised in the East Kingdom in the Barony of Ruantallan.
