Florence, Italy, is today's stop on the Hauger history, discussing 1300-1500 advances and wealth from banking, cotton, and wool that allowed patrons and sponsors to send the most brilliant minds in human history to work following their arts and passions. Join us in a discussion of Michelangelo, Da Vince, De Medici, and more exploring the rebirth of the Renaissance through art and culture centered in Florence! We are studying how the growth of trading cities spread Renaissance ideas and culture throughout Europe.
