Medici: The Art of Power

Episode 1 of 1

In MEDICI: THE ART OF POWER, host Dr. Rocky Ruggiero examines the rise to power and legacy of the most famous family of the Renaissance. Not only were the Medici bankers to some of Europe's most important rulers, but they were also great patrons of the arts. Artists such as Donatello, Brunelleschi, Botticelli, and Michelangelo all developed under and enjoyed Medici largesse. Filmed mainly on location in Florence, Italy, the half-hour documentary explores how the art of the Renaissance became the visual geopolitical language of the Medici family, which was clearly a language of power.
