Renaissance Florence by Gene A Brucker( Book )

52 editions published between 1969 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 2,062 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, the city of Florence experienced its most creative period.

Florence, the Golden Age, 1138-1737 by Gene A Brucker( Book )

38 editions published between 1983 and 1999 in 4 languages and held by 992 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historian Brucker relates the story of Florence's Golden Age and the conjoined forces that transformed the city on the Arno into one of the most glorious civilizations the world has known. Brucker's story of the premier city of the Italian Renaissance tells of great families and common people, wars and economic dislocations, natural catastrophes and religious turmoil, and extraordinary artistic and literary achievement. The creative growth of the city was made possible through its role as an economic center, the zeal of its small manufacturing industries, and the enterprise of the merchants who spread Florentine influence well beyond the city's walls and territories. The book is enlivened with the voices of historical protagonists, whose words richly convey the tenor of the times. Brucker's accessible writing is also complemented by a wealth of paintings and drawings, 200 of them in full color.--From publisher description
