The Rise of the Medici
The Basilica of San Lorenzo
The Convent of San Marco
This lecture will examine the Medici family’s important role in the history of Florence. The Medici imposed de factorule on Florence from 1434 until their exile in 1494. The family controlled the city’s political, economic and artistic policy. Their power and patronage are best expressed in their 15th– century palazzo, their unofficial “official” church of San Lorenzo and the first monumental commission of individual patronage that rivaled communal patronage in Florence – the church and convent of San Marco.
