The Medici was a family of bankers, the owners of incalculable wealth, enormous power and hot blood, unprecedented in history. Patrons of artists and scholars unknown in their time like Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Botticelli and Galileo, in the course of three centuries they influenced statesmen, artists, and the high clergy. The family has remained in the memory of the world by the excessive satisfaction of their whims and sexual desires, which ultimately resulted in the self-destruction of the remarkable dynasty. They turned Florence into a world hub of power and brought the light of the Italian Renaissance to humanity, afterward losing everything.
