The Medici: Godfathers of the Renaissance DVD

From a small Italian community in 15th Century Florence, the Medici family would rise to become one of the most powerful dynasties in Europe.  Using charm, patronage, skill, duplicity, and ruthlessness, they would amass unparalleled wealth and unprecedented power.  They would use this power to help ignite the most important cultural and artistic revolution in Western history—the Renaissance. The Medici: Godfathers of the Renaissance is both the tale of one family's powerful ambition, and Europe's tortured struggle to emerge from the Dark Ages.

Running time is approximately 220 minutes.
