Rosen Pub Group
No other leader in history has had such an impact on the world of art as Lorenzo de’ Medici. Not only a great patron of the arts, Lorenzo wrote plays and poems and reveled in the world of ancient Greek philosophy. Learning from his early political missteps, he strove to keep the various city-states of Italy in alliance, which was a huge feat at the time. This beautifully illustrated book tells the story of this impressive man, whose support of the arts, whose implementation of balance of power, and whose passion for learning truly earned him the title “Lorenzo the Magnificent.”
