Welcome to Renaissance Italy.
This blog looks at the history of real people living in Italy in the Renaissance (a period I’m loosely classing here as from around 1400 to around 1600). I’ll be talking about society, culture, art, manners, the family and about day to day life in and around the city.
There’ll be lots of beautiful images, interesting texts and fascinating objects – a bit of everything.
If you’d like references for any of the material on this blog, just get in touch and I’ll be happy to oblige. I’d also love to read your comments and feedback.
But please don’t reproduce anything that’s on here without asking first.
