    After a long weekend in Florence I devoured this fascinating account of the Medici dynasty on the plane home From sponsoring artists to commissioning pieces nurturing great talent such as Michaelangelo and building some of the beautiful opulent buildings I explored in Florence it's astonishing just how much one family influenced art religion culture and society throughout the world And even Science one Medici founded the precursor to the UK's Royal Society I'm glad that I read this after seeing some of the artworks and buildings as it helped ground the context and history I was absorbing and it will make my next trip to Florence even richer
