WEDDINGS IN FLORENCE Wherever the visitor's eye falls it seems that there is a church, a museum, or a special crafts store reflecting the centuries of artistic heritage so steeped into the inhabitants of the city. During the Renaissance, science, art, architecture and literature made their home in Florence and from here spread out into the rest of Europe changing the world.
  • Florence began as an Etruscan center and then later grew under Roman domination along the fertile banks of the Arno River into a military and trading post. It went into a period of decay in the Dark Ages and regained importance in the 12th and 13th century during which time the Florentines became involved in trade with the rest of Europe. A huge building boom ensued reflecting the new wealth and importance of the city and its standing in the Continent. Magnificent palaces, splendid churches and monuments were erected everywhere by prominent banking and trading families that managed the wool and silk industries.
  • However Florence is most closely associated with the Medici name than any other of the great families. The Medici were the greatest patrons of Florence founding a powerful dynasty that peaked with the coming of Lorenzo the Magnificent who placed the city at the vanguard of the Renaissance making it the envy of Europe. Artists from Michelangelo to Leonardo da Vinci started their careers under the protection of the Medici family making Florence one of the most influential cities in the world.
