In June 1507 Ferdinand the Catholic was magnificently received by Louis XII of France in the city of Savona (Liguria) at a meeting diplomat who surprised his contemporaries and has hardly been studied. This inaugurated the summit of two former rivals who wanted to consolidate their friendship, strengthen their monarchies and redesign the European order threatened by the King of Romans. Gathering for the first time the French, Italian and Spanish historical sources, we offer an analysis of the ritual used in its three successive stages: the arrival of the fleet Aragonese, the interview of the monarchs in the royal galley, and the procession under triumphal arches that took up the classical language of their own of modern entries. The scenery and the ceremonial displayed there allowed Louis XII to ease his diplomatic isolation, and the king Catholic to increase his prestige to recover the Castilian regency under the new ideals of peace shared with France.
