North African Drug Dealers Fighting In The Streets Of Florence, Italy

1 year, 4 months ago

A 2015 Nexo Digital, Magnitudo Film & Sky Arte Documentary, directed by Luca Viotto (audio in English).

A multidimensional and multisensory journey in the Florentine Renaissance through its most representative beauties. More than 10 museum locations and 150 works of which the central fulcrum is naturally represented by the Uffizi Gallery.

The emotional narration, set within a timeless limbo, is entrusted to Simon Merrells who, in the role of Lorenzo the Magnificent, will lead us through the memories of 'his' Florence, in an incessant dialogue between past and present.

The film crosses the symbolic places of Florence from the Brancacci Chapel (with the frescoes by Masolino and Masaccio, emblem of the transition from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance) to the Bargello Museum which houses the David di Donatello; from S. Maria del Fiore with its sparkling windows and Brunelleschi's Dome to Palazzo Medici; from Piazza della Signoria to Palazzo Vecchio to the Accademia Gallery, which houses Michelangelo's David.

The heart of the film is of course the Uffizi Gallery: viewers will be able to access the Tribuna (a place visible to the public only from three external points) and Antonio Natali (director of the Gallery from 2006 to 2015) will accompany us among the works.

The narrative excursus inside the Gallery goes from Giotto to Gentile da Fabriano and Piero della Francesca, to Raffaello and Tiziano, from Leonardo's Annunciation to Michelangelo's Toni Doni, without neglecting the symbolic works such as Spring and the Birth of Venus by Botticelli and the Shield of Medusa by Caravaggio, the latter inserted within a chapter dedicated to the 'monstrous' works of the Gallery, including the Madonna della Arpie by Andrea del Sarto, the Calunnia by Botticelli and Giuditta who beheads Holofernes of Artemisia Gentileschi.

A pearl of Florence and the Uffizi will be the unveiling of the ongoing restoration of Leonardo's Adoration of the Magi, absent from the Uffizi since 2011.

The Film was made possible also thanks to the patronage of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourismthe M, unicipality of Florence and with the support of Ente Cassa di Risparmio Firenze.

A 2010 BSkyB Arts Documentary narrated by Hugh Bonneville.

Restoring Genius: The Art of Agnolo Bronzino, explores the 16th-century Italian Medici court artist known as Bronzino and the build up to a much-awaited exhibition of his art in Florence in 2010.

Agnolo di Cosimo (November 17, 1503 – November 23, 1572), usually known as Bronzino was an Italian Mannerist painter from Florence. He lived all his life in Florence, and from his late 30s was kept busy as the court painter of Cosimo I de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany. He was mainly a portraitist but also painted many religious subjects, and a few allegorical subjects, which include what is probably his best known work, Venus, Cupid, Folly and Time.

A 2006 History Channel Documentary series hosted by Peter Weller, narrated by Saul Reichlin.

Episode 14: After the fall of Rome, Italy fell into a dark sleep, and wasn't reawakened until the 11th century. Autonomous city-states emerged and these tiny republics began to revitalize their cities and build on a massive level not witnessed since the rise of Rome. In the late 15th and 16th centuries, alliances among various city-states continually shifted as foreign superpowers tried to sink their claws into Italy.
The masters who are best known for creating the works of art and architecture of the Renaissance, were also the greatest military and civil engineers of the time.

Note: This is the last episode of the series. I'm sorry for the low quality of some videos, but I didn't have all episodes in HD. I usually don't like to upload material with bad video quality, but this was a series and I wanted to upload it as a whole.

Happy New Year, everybody. Have fun, be safe and see you next year. :)

A 2013 ZDF/Arte History/Forensic Documentary narrated by Clayton Nemrow.

For the past 10 years, a team of European scientists has exhumed 28 corpses of this mighty Italian dynasty which are buried in the Medici’s family crypt in Florence. It is the largest-scale project in forensic medicine of all times: the Medici Project. With leading experts and real Medici family members this docu-drama follows the Medici’s trail of blood, offering a brand-new take on the dramatic intrigues and mysterious murders within the Medici family. The film focuses on two outstanding periods of the 16th century - a time when the descendants of Cosimo the Elder and Lorenzo the Magnificent have already ascended to rulers of Tuscany and have married into Europe’s ruling dynasties.

In Interviews historians, forensics and bio-archaeologists talk vividly about these vibrant times, centering around the siblings Isabella, Francesco and Ferdinando de' Medici as well as Francesco’s mistress Bianca Cappello.

Episode 1: This episode focuses on Isabella Romola de' Medici. She was the daughter of Cosimo I de' Medici, first Grand Duke of Tuscany, and Eleonora di Toledo. She was raised and educated in a humanist manner with her siblings, including Francesco de' Medici who succeeded their father as the Grand Duke of Tuscany. When she was 16, she married Paolo Giordano I Orsini from the ancient and powerful Roman Orisini family. She remained in her father's household after her marriage, giving her greater freedom and control over her own affairs than was customary for Florentine women of the time.

On 16 July 1576 Isabella died unexpectedly at the Medici villa in Cerreto Guidi during a hunting holiday. According to her brother, the Grand duke, this occurred "while she was washing her hair in the morning ... She was found by Signor Paolo Giordano on her knees, having immediately fallen dead."

However, the official version of events was not generally believed, and the Ferrarese ambassador, Ercole Cortile, obtained information that Isabella was "strangled at midday" by her husband in the presence of several named servants. Isabella was the second sudden death in an isolated country villa in the Medici family, her cousin Leonora, having died of a similar "accident" only a few days before.

Most historians assume that Paolo Giordano killed Isabella, in reprisal for carrying on a love affair with Troilo Orsini, or that he acted on instructions of the Grand duke Francesco, Isabella's brother. Other scholars argue that Isabella de' Medici died of natural causes and that the rumour that Paolo Giordano murdered her was spread by enemies of the Medici.

A 2015 TV5Monde History Documentary hosted by Stéphane Bern, with english subtitles.

Stéphane Bern invites you to join him in Florence, at the heart of the Italian Renaissance, to discover one of its most famous figures. A king despite having neither crown nor title: Lorenzo the Magnificent.

Lorenzo de' Medici was an Italian statesman, de facto ruler of the Florentine Republic and the most powerful and enthusiastic patron of Renaissance culture in Italy. Also known as Lorenzo the Magnificent (Lorenzo il Magnifico) by contemporary Florentines, he was a magnate, diplomat, politician and patron of scholars, artists and poets. As a patron, he is best known for his sponsorship of artists such as Botticelli and Michelangelo. He held the balance of power within the Italic League, an alliance of states that stabilized political conditions on the Italian peninsula for decades, and his life coincided with the mature phase of the Italian Renaissance and the Golden Age of Florence. The Peace of Lodi of 1454 that he helped maintain among the various Italian states collapsed with his death. He is buried in the Medici Chapel in Florence.

Andrew Graham-Dixon reveals how the Medici family transformed Florence through sculpture, painting and architecture and created a world where masterpieces fetch millions today. Without the money and patronage of the Medici we might never have heard of artists such as Donatello, Michelangelo or Botticelli, and Graham-Dixon examines how a family of shadowy, corrupt businessmen, driven by greed and ambition, became the financial engine behind the Italian Renaissance.

A 2004 PBS Empire Special, History Documentary narrated by Massimo Marinoni.

From a small Italian community in 15th century Florence, the Medici family would rise to rule Europe in many ways. Using charm, patronage, skill, duplicity and ruthlessness, they would amass unparalleled wealth and unprecedented power. They would also ignite the most important cultural and artistic revolution in Western history - the European Renaissance. But the forces of change the Medici helped unleash would one day topple their ordered world.

The Birth of a Dynasty - Europe, 1400: A continent torn apart by war and plague is dominated by the authority of the Catholic Church. In the towns and cities live merchants and entrepreneurs who sense that their world is changing. With increasing trade and wealth an appetite for enlightenment develops. No longer neglected in the shadows of the Church, classical philosophy, poetry, art and sculpture begin to reach a new audience. This is especially true in cosmopolitan cities like Florence, home of Cosimo de'Medici.

A 2014 PBS Nova History, Technology Documentary hosted by Jay Sander.

The dome that crowns Florence's great cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore - the Duomo - is a masterpiece of Renaissance ingenuity and an enduring source of mystery. Still the largest masonry dome on earth, it is taller than the Statue of Liberty and weighs as much as an average cruise ship. Historians and engineers have long debated how its architect, Filippo Brunelleschi, kept the dome perfectly aligned and symmetrical as the sides rose and converged toward the center. More than four million bricks could collapse at any moment and we still don't understand how Brunelleschi prevented it. To test the latest theories, a team of U.S. bricklayers will help build an experimental "mini-Duomo" using period tools and techniques.

A lonely reporter from The Weather Channel found himself in the midst of Hurricane Florence this past weekend when he was caught exaggerating the storm's intensity . Perhaps he was just exhausted from doing constant live reports. Maybe he was trying to seem more heroic than he actually was. Whatever the reason, this young man proved that nothing is off limits to Fake News.

On the other hand, we also got some pretty hilarious memes out of it.
