Here, award-winning historian Charles L. Mee Jr. explores life in Renaissance Italy – from the ascendancy of Florence and the Medicis to the genius of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. Through wars and violence to festivals and feasts, Mee examines the people – artists, clergy, courtiers, merchants, scholars, and women - who fashioned the cradle for the rebirth of the Western world.
