The best reconstruction of Renaissance
27 April 2001 | by polibiosSee all my reviews

A Wonderful series about a great artist -sculptor, painter, musician, soldier - in sum a men of Renaissance.

Very accurate in costumes and historical events - sack of Rome by the imperial army and the construction of the artistic masterpiece Perseus.

Probably the best reconstruction of Renaissance ever made!
