Artwork Description:

The city of Florence lies in the historic valley of Tuscany , Along the banks of the Arno river, surrounded by hills of scenic beauty Here during the first century BC , the conquering Romans established their ‘Colonia Florentina’, To settle the war veterans of Caesar’s army in Northern Italia But later after the fall of Rome , it became a battleground for the Holy Roman Empire and the Pope But the independent nature of its people refused foreign yolk They preferred commune rule led by a powerful leader – called the Signore , Just like the city-states of ancient Greece, in those days of yore But unlike Greece , Florence saw no Democracy , Since the Medici family finally usurped power in this city of Northern Italy Unlike Venice , Florence is landlocked and not a port city Relying on banking and trade to prosper economically . Their gold coin florin became the standard coinage throughout Europe While through the export of its quality textile and woolen goods, great wealth got secured But to become patrons of art and letters mere wealth is not enough , One must have a refined taste to become a true lover of letters and art And here the Medici carved out a niche for themselves under the Florentine sun
