Palazzo Medici-Riccardi

1 save

Recommendation by Lemi

Fresh from country life, the Medicis moved into their first mansion in the city called the Palazzo Medici-Riccardi! Cosimo bought the fairly modest estate after marrying Contessina de’ Bardi, a noblewoman from a family that once owned one of the richest banks in Europe! Their union and the Palazzo cemented his position as a true nobleman in society. Visit the Palazzo’s crowning jewel, the Magi Chapel, was the ultimate portrait of who’s who in Renaissance society! On the East Wall, a few of the Medici men are depicted alongside prominent heads-of-state in the Biblical procession of the three wise men (or three magi). It perfectly documented the extent of the family’s political ambitions!
