     Florence and the Spirit of the Renaissance: Sites of the World's Cultures
Publisher: Kultur
Format: Color, NTSC

Florence is regarded as the focal point, the site where the revolutionary ideas of the Renaissance with its enthusiasm for the art of Antiquity were developed. The city on the Arno was at this time one of Europe's foremost trading centers. Here the currents of culture and politics converged. In Florence, liberal and open-minded as it was, there emerged a broad class of industrious citizens who had made their fortunes in trade. Suddenly they were able to afford education - a privilege hitherto the preserve of a few aristocrats and priests. They studied and absorbed the thoughts of the writers of Ancient Rome and Greece, and developed them further, thus creating the foundations for a completely new attitude toward human existence. Western Civilization's present-day understanding is based on this school of thought, in which Florence played a decisive role.
