Learn More About The Renaissance In Italy!
The Renaissance was a magical time in history between the 14th and 17th centuries; full of creativity, innovation and learning. It was a period of huge change that bridged the time between the turbulent Middle Ages and the modern day.
This exciting rebirth of knowledge and cultural growth is believed to have originated in the Tuscan city of Florence and soon spread throughout the rest of Italy with the help of wealthy visionaries and talented creatives.
The Medici Family in Florence were a hugely powerful and wealthy family in Florence that sponsored talented men such as Galileo Galilei and Leonardo da Vinci. Leonardo (in the picture) was a perfect example of the term coined for true masters of the arts; a Renaissance Man. He was a painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, inventor, engineer and writer to name but a few of his many talents.
