When you are in Florence, Italy the Renaissance looks very big.

In my books, teaching, and lectures I try to put this unique cultural moment into historical perspective, exploring Renaissance poetry, philosophy, music, painting, sculpture, and architecture, as well as innovations in science and engineering.

It is also important to consider the men and women who lived in the world of Renaissance Italy and to examine their daily lives, social practices, religious beliefs, hopes and fears.
