Description

  • William Morrow Paperbacks
  • At its height Renaissance Florence was a centre of enormous wealth, power and influence. A republican city-state funded
    by trade and banking, its often bloody political scene was dominated by rich mercantile families, the most famous of
    which were the Medici. This enthralling book charts the family’s huge influence on the political, economic and cultural
    history of Florence. Beginning in the early 1430s with the rise of the dynasty under the near-legendary Cosimo de
    Medici, it moves through their golden era as patrons of some of the most remarkable artists and architects of the
    Renaissance, to the era of the Medici Popes and Grand Dukes, Florence’s slide into decay and bankruptcy, and the end, in
    1737, of the Medici line.
