The Medici myth
The Medici were 15th-century Florence’s preeminent dynasty and the enlightened influence behind an explosion of magnificent art and architecture. Thus runs the conventional view—but Mary Hollingsworth argues that the Medici were every bit as devious and immoral as the Borgias―tyrants loathed in the city they illegally made their own.
The Family Medici takes us on a grand illustrated tour of the dynasty and its era. Packed with images—stunning artworks by such masters as Michelangelo, Botticelli, Raphael, and Titian, historical depictions of 15th-century Florence, period artifacts, and contemporary photographs of the city—it is a revelatory re-telling that sheds fresh new light on the most powerful family of the Italian Renaissance.
