Renaissance Italy small group history tour; story of five families

Renaissance Italy, small group history tour; story of five families Renaissance Italy small group history tour. In the 15th and 16th centuries the principalities that became Italy were alive with new ideas. The boundaries of art, architecture, music, science, politics, religion and literature were pushed. It was also riven by bitter rivalry and even open warfare between the numerous independent city states. Out of this chaos and upheaval emerged a number of significant families who drove the development in their individual cities. In a number of cases their quarrels also led to the destruction of much of what they had achieved. This tour concentrates on the story of five families. Five very important Italian renaissance families and the cities they helped to build. The Medici of Florence The Montefeltro of Urbino The Este of Ferrara The Gonzago of Mantua The Sforza of Milan This story of five families is all that Hollywood seeks in a blockbuster. They intermarried, occasionally they were allies against the Pope, the king of Naples, the king of France and other states. Sometimes they fought pitched battles against each other.  But all five families left an amazing legacy of buildings and art works which you can admire today on this small group that looks at the  Renaissance  of Italy the families that made it happen. About this tour of Italy In this Italian renaissance small group tour we take the time to explore these five independent cities. We learn
