The Italian Renaissance Courts

The artistic achievements of Florence, admired and envied, soon spread rapidly throughout the Italian peninsula. These new developments and the spirit that animated them were taken up and used for their own ends by the princely and ducal courts of Milan, Naples, Mantua, Urbino and Ferrara. They were also taken up by the papacy in Rome and the republican oligarchies of Venice, Lucca, Rimini, Pisa etc. The inventive variety that grew from this cross-fertilization will be studied against the social and political background of the period.
