Trivia

Many scenes were shot in Florence. Thus, the scenes inside the Florence town hall (Palazzo Vecchio) were really made there, but against the background of frescoes performed a century later than the characters really lived. See more »

Goofs

We see some constructions built indeed later than the described era (XVth century): the dome of the San Lorenzo Basilica, completed by 1604, the Vasari corridor (1565) in Florence, as well as the Venetian Church of Santa Maria della Salute (1681). See more »

Renaissance Soap Opera
13 December 2016 | by richardolivermcraeSee all my reviews

A Harlequin Romance version of one of the most extraordinary men, families, and times in all human history.

Think about it, half a millennium later the civilized world still venerates a place the size of Abilene Texas. Cosimo was Pater Patriae - father to his people, from plebeians to patricians. He chose to invest his life and fortune in his community, that alone makes him exceptional. And the wisdom with which he did that . . . ah, well, that's the stuff of true and abiding legend! Cosimo's contribution to civilization is immeasurable. It should be a lesson for every city council in every town and city of the world.

If this is your first experience with the subject, then by all means enjoy this melodramatic version. And if the beauty of the Medici Renaissance enthralls you, then follow up with the PBS series - Medici: Godfathers of the Renaissance. And some day spend a week or a month in Florence - six centuries and still one of the most refulgent blossoms on the planet.
