)-- New from the Sites of the World’s Cultures Series: Florence and the Spirit of the Renaissance Debuts on DVD August 28th
Kultur is proud to announce the DVD release of Florence and the Spirit of the Renaissance available August 28, 2012.
Florence is regarded as the focal point, the center where the revolutionary ideas of the Renaissance with its enthusiasm for the art of Antiquity were developed.
The city on the Arno was at this time one of Europe's foremost trading metropoles. Here the currents of culture and politics converged. In Florence, liberal and open-minded as it was, there emerged a broad class of industrious citizens who had made their fortunes in trade.
Suddenly they were able to afford education - a privilege hitherto the preserve of a few aristocrats and priests. They studied and absorbed the thoughts of the writers of Antiquity, developed them further, thus creating the foundations for a completely new attitude to human existence.
Our present-day understanding as modern Europeans is based on this new school of thought, in which Florence played a decisive role.
