Recommendation by Lemi
Cosimo de’ Medici offered up his country home, Medici Villa di Careggi, to Florence’s most influential thinkers. In addition, Cosimo helped establish a discussion group dedicated to the works of Plato called the Florence Neoplatonic Academy. Membership was led by Marcilio Ficino, a scholar who was both a Catholic priest and humanist philosopher. His Latin translations of Plato’s work made it accessible to western Europe and led to a revival in Platonic thought in the Renaissance. Roam the beautiful gardens and inner courtyards—maybe a little enlightenment will come to you!
