Discover the story of the Renaissance – the cultural, political, scientific and intellectual movement that took place across Europe between the 14th and 17th centuries. Follow the events that led up to this movement, from the rise of the Medici family in Florence to the invention of the Gutenberg printing press. Delve into the lives and livelihoods of the Renaissance’s key players, from Michelangelo, nicknamed The Divine, to the scandalous hell-raiser Caravaggio. Uncover the stories behind the most famous masterpieces, such as the Mona Lisa and the ceiling of the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel, and find out how they were painstakingly created. Trace the expansion of the Renaissance throughout the continent and discover how its effects still resonate today, from Columbus making land in the New World to the theory of heliocentrism.
