You will hear about the cunning Cosimo the Elder, his grandson Lorenzo the Magnificent, Cosimo the 1st and the Dynasty of the Grand Dukes.

Thanks to the protection and financing of artists, they left us an astonishing legacy of masterpieces. Explore their palaces, their Chapel and meet one of his most famous protegees: Michelangelo Buonarroti.
