Back by popular demand, the third consecutive seminar on “Florence: Birthplace of the Modern World” will analyze Michelangelo and the Medicis.
From David to the Sistine Chapel, Michelangelo achieved sheer mastery in painting, sculpture, architecture, and poetry — matched by the sheer sleaziness and caginess, cruelty and generosity of the ruling Medici family. Unequalled beauty and unalloyed brutality of Florence in this era helped form our era today.
