The Medici Renaissance in Florence was written as my master degree's thesis project and is loaded with photos, professional videos, and interviews with Italian historians in Florence. The Medici Renaissance in Florence tells the story of how a few men in search of ancient knowledge ignited a new age of enlightenment called the Renaissance based on rediscovered ancient and classical manuscripts. The Medici bankers as patrons of the arts and sciences, collected and studied the ancient manuscripts of Egypt, Greece, and Rome and disseminated the information throughout their community of Florence, building "la bella citta" a center of art, literature, architecture, and science.

An iBook as iBooks should be.
A highly-visual, interactive, and stimulating piece by Dubriel. This multi-touch book traces the influence of the famed Medici family upon the Italian Renaissance through a modern filter, chock full of high-quality videos, interviews, and photography. Caveat: You may be compelled to book airfare to Florence upon completion.
This should be sold as a pamphlet. My bad, for not noticing that it was 29 pages long; half of which are utilized.
Thank you for making this book for the Medici and Florence! Looking forward to the upcoming travel
