Medici Money: Banking, Metaphysics, and Art in Fifteenth-Century Florence (Enterprise)by Tim Parks
Tim Parks reveals the banking origins of Renaissance Italy's most famous family. The Medicis practically invented modern international finance, building a web of political connections to build their immensely profitable bank and create unprecedented wealth for themselves. Parks captures this important moment, when the medieval world was beginning to give way to modern capitalism.
