The builders of Renaissance Florence saw as their duty not only to modernize the city and create lasting monuments in the spirit of humanism, but also to honor the republic which fashioned herself as the “new Rome.” This lecture with Ena Heller, Ph.D. looks at Florentine buildings as indicators of civic pride, vehicles for new knowledge, and symbols of the beliefs of the Republic.
