COMMENTARY: Belladonna is a sweet smelling poison with a rich tradition in Italy going back to ancient times when Livia used it to poison Emperor Augustus. Literally translating to ‘beautiful woman’, medieval Italian women would put droplets into their eyes to dilate their pupils as they believed this made them appear more attractive. It is often equated with aggressive female sexuality and was used by Northern Italian witches (streghe) to place seduction spells on men.
