Single DVD

From a base in 15th-century Florence, the Medici family used charm, patronage, duplicity, and ruthlessness to amass wealth and power. The Medicis also ignited Western history's most important cultural and artistic revolution, the Renaissance, but doomed their own ordered world. This epic drama in the courts, cathedrals, and palaces of Europe traces a family's powerful ambition and a continent's tortured struggle to emerge from the Dark Ages.

Wonderful review of Renaissance

By art historian

from APO, AP

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Empires: The Medici:Godfathers of the Renaissance DVD:

I had trouble viewing this on my TV. I couldn't get parts II, III or IV to play. Tried on computer and it would stop every few minutes and I would have to stop movie, then move counter to pick up where the movie had ended. I loved the production but had a really hard time getting it to play all parts.
