About the Event
Streets and public spaces of cities were the primary arenas for social encounters, business transactions, political, commercial, and everyday interactions. What was street life like for the average Florentine in the 15th century? Walk (virtually) through the streets, piazzas, and medieval alleyways to understand aspects of public life in Renaissance Florence such as shopping, business, health care, fashion, and festivals. You might be surprised to find fundamental similarities between our lives today and the lives of Florentines living over 500 years ago. Join art historian Elaine Ruffolo as she paints a full portrait of street life in Renaissance Florence.
