Firenze, or Florence, is one of the most loved and admired cities in the world. Founded on the banks of the River Arno by Julius Caesar in 59 BCE, Florentia has made her mark on European history for over 2,000 years. Economic innovation and political experimentation contributed to Florentine prosperity in the Middle Ages. However, it is the architectural, artistic, literary and scientific achievements of the Renaissance period of the 14th to 16th centuries for which Florence is most acclaimed. This afternoon session will set Florence in context, and focus on aspects of the legacy of the Renaissance.
