A FAMILY AFFAIR: FLORENCE & THE HOUSE OF MEDICI 1300-1737

The Medici family ‘advised’, ruled, were exiled, returned to rule again in Florence, stamping their authority on the city. As art patrons they were responsible for creating vibrant artistic centres of the Renaissance and beyond. Jo tells of larger than life characters and great art, alongside stirring historical events, occasional assassinations and the eventual decline of the most dramatic events witnessed by our ancestors.
