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 »
I believe that this series deserve a lot of credit to create a complex story to Florentine republic. I know some people might disagrees, but I'm enthusiastic to follow the schemes and the art of intrigue as old politics were. I wish to see soon the second series of it. Cosimo life is a small part of Medici legacy and I hope to see more of the Lorenzo saga in the next series. Cosimo for sure put them in the history book, but Lorenzo is the one that create the Renaissance and he would deserve a series... I don't know how they will jump ahead of a century but I wish they do, Anyway I've enjoyed the series and I believe the wife/ husband relationship is overrated, since at that age women's were not supposed to act in behalf of their husband. I wish they could
