Irmana duas cidades que quase não se conhecem: a hedonista capital mogol, onde o inteligente imperador se debate diariamente com questões de crenças, desejos e a traição dos filhos, e o mundo florentino, igualmente sensual, de poderosos cortesãos, filosofia humanista e desumana tortura.
Estes dois mundos, tão distantes, acabam por se revelar estranhamente semelhantes, e ambos são dominados pelos encantamentos das mulheres.

Críticas de imprensa
« “A Feiticeira de Florença” é um festim exótico, supra abundante, coberto de ouro e pedrarias, tão vertiginoso como cómico, tão inventivo, irreal e irónico como os contos da Mil e Uma Noites. [ ... Rushdie] leva-nos aos sonhos e visões de muitos séculos, desde a magnificência das cidades italianas do Renascimento e dos feitos dos Médicis e dos Sforzas; às naus das Índias e ao naufrágio de Camões, do Al-Andaluz à Pérsia, numa infindável viagem de memórias exóticas e surreais.»
