Europe after 1500 saw conflict, companionship, refinement and squalor. Beginning in opulent Rome, we discover a cast of Renaissance men and women, from Machiavellian political theorists and crafty swindlers to prophets and scientists, artists and poets. This was a world of bustling towns, sumptuous artefacts, bitter religious disputes, and electric debates over politics and learning. Europeans travelled to Italy, which in turn nourished culture and ideas around Europe: this unit follows these many pathways.
