I recommend the show: Medici on Netflix. I’ve just finished rewatching the first season (Masters of Florence) and now I’m working on the second. Although it has taken its creative liberties, the show itself is engaging and atmospheric. The cast is excellent and the writing is well done. Some of the major plot points are historically inaccurate or misrepresented, but the real history is in the details. It gives me a wonderful sense of what life was like during that time just before the Renaissance, and how families such as the Medici rose to power in Florence. I’ve even used it as inspiration for my own writing because the tone of the episodes and the theme music inspires me.

@jenni0220 Thanks, I love the Medicis history. They played such an important role in the arts and cultural expansion of the renaissance. I’ll definitely watch it!

@KirsyNP They’re one of the most interesting things I learned about in a history class, so it was cool to see them brought to life. Hope you enjoy!
