Florence in the Renaissance   

Are you ready to immerse yourself in one of the greatest periods in human history? Join us in examining the history and culture of Florence from 1330 to 1550, with special emphasis placed on the writers, artists, and philosophers whose works embodied humanism and helped bring about modernity. Together, we will begin our journey with Dante and Petrarch; face the devastation of the plague; learn of banking and the Medici; follow the Baptistry competition; engage in civic humanism and the teachings of Machiavelli; contemplate Neoplatonism and Botticelli; mourn Savonarola's Bonfire of the Vanities; and admire the greatest of them all, Michelangelo.
