Reviews

A fascinating warts-and-all history of the rise and fall of the Medici. Hollingsworth effectively debunks the myths surrounding this legendary family. A vital acquisition for anyone who studies the Renaissance and seeks the true role of the Medici in the history of Florence.
Hollingsworth's clear, concise family chronology serves as an excellent introduction or handy reference guide to one of the Renaissance's most infamous families.
Highly readable. A revisionist view of the celebrated Medici family.
Vivid and well-researched. Hollingsworth's implication is correct and praiseworthy--that we should remember the Medici for what they were, not for what they wanted us to think they were.
