The Power and the Passion: The Turbulent Fortunes of the Medici Dynasty
Tuesday, January 18th, 1:00-2:00pm Open to out-of-town seniors/free
The Medici family left an indelible mark on Italy, Europe, and the West. As bankers, rulers, and patrons of the arts, they were among the leading political and cultural dynasties in Europe. Yet the story of the family’s rise and success was marked by turmoil, violence, and duplicity. Historian Paolo Di Gregorio will explore the complex, exciting history of the Medici. You can participate via Zoom from home or at the Senior Center to watch with a group on a large screen. To watch from home, register to receive the Zoom link by emailing the COA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Paolo Di Gregorio, the Artifactual Scholar, is a historian, archaeologist, and educator with a passion for telling the stories of our past. He has presented numerous historical lectures and discussions on a variety of topics in American, European, and World history. His presentations at the Senior Center are always interesting and well-received!
