Home to art, trade and finance in the medieval ages, Florence was home to some of the wealthiest. With wealth and affluence came the  flourishing of art, architecture and craft. The immense patronage meant artists such as Michaelangelo and Da Vinci were unrestricted in creating their expressions of art for the wealthy. What remains is what they have bestowed upon future generations to admire.
