Medici: Godfathers of the Renaissance


Big Poster
Medici: Godfathers of the Renaissance is both a tale of one family's powerful ambition and of Europe's struggle to emerge from the ravages of the Dark Ages. Beginning in the 14th century, The Medici used charm, skill and ruthlessness to garner unparalleled wealth and power.

Standing at the helm of the Renaissance, they ruled Europe for more than 300 years and inspired the great artists, scientists and thinkers who gave birth to the modern world. Michelangelo, da Vinci, Machiavelli, Luther, Copernicus and Galileo are among the figures who are profiled in this Empires special. (excerpt from a PBS page)
