Summary:A vivid, dramatic and authoritative account of the most influential family in Italian history: The Medici.
Against the background of an age that saw the rebirth of ancient and classical learning, Strathern explores the intensely dramatic rise and fall of the Medici family in Florence, as well as the Italian Renaissance which they did so much to sponsor and encourage. He follows the lives of many of the great Renaissance artists and scientists with whom the Medici had dealings, and traces the fortunes of those members of the Medici family who achieved success away from Florence, including the two Medici popes and Catherine dé Medici.
