Description - The Flowering Of The Renaissance by Vincent Cronin
Following the collapse of the Medici rule in 15th century Florence, the centre of Renaissance activity moved first to Rome and finally to Venice. In the Rome of Julius II and Leo X which Michelangelo remoulded and beautified, in the Venice of Titian, Tintoretto and Palladio, as well as the courts, the Renaissance reached the height of its splendour, not only in the visual arts but also in the theatre, history, biography, epic poetry and music. This is the sequel to "The Florentine Renaissance" and provides a guide to every aspect of the Italian Renaissance.
