ArtBeats: Botticelli, Florence and the Medici

E

DIRECTED BY: Marco Pianigiani

NARRATED BY: Stephen Mangan

GENRE: Documentary

RUN TIME: 95 Minutes

Beauty, creativity, genius: the Renaissance Florence of Lorenzo de' Medici was a powerhouse of art and culture. Among countless shops and government buildings, there was endless beauty coexisting with the dark side of the city, made up of power struggles, plots, intrigues and brutal violence.

One revolutionary artist, more than any other, was able to project into his works the lights and shadows of an era destined never to be forgotten: Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510). In this special cinema event, relive Florence and all its astonishing art and culture through Botticelli's life, his collaborations, his challenges and successes under the wing of the Medici family.
