Summary
This program focuses on the fierce competition between the newly wealthy merchant classes in Sienna and Florence throughout the 13th and 14th centuries over the creation of new buildings, services, and ways of governing. Leading art historians interpret this jarring 200-year conflict through detailed analysis of each city-state's stunning cathedrals and exquisite artworks. Their revealing discussions show how city planning, law, regulation, justice, and Christian virtues brought order to this period of rivalry and war prior to the outbreak of the great plague.
