Public Art in Florence
Florence is the Capital City of the Tuscany region of Italy and is concidered one
of the most beautiful cities in the world. Public Art in Florence exploded in the 15th Century, a period which became
known as the Renaissance, thanks in part to Lorenzo de' Medici who was ruler of the Florentine Republic during this
time. He helped artists such as Antonio del Pollaiuolo, Andrea del Verrocchio, Leonardo da Vinci, Sandro
Botticelli, Domenico Ghirlandaio, and Michelangelo Buonarroti secure art commissions.
