      Gian Francesco Poggio Bracciolini (11 February – 30 October ), usually referred to simply as Poggio Bracciolini, was an Italian scholar and an early Renaissance was responsible for rediscovering and recovering many classical Latin manuscripts, mostly decaying and forgotten in German, Swiss, and French monastic libraries. His most celebrated finds are De rerum natura, the Born: Gian Francesco Poggio Bracciolini, 11 February . Professor Judith Testa explains in her book An Art Lover’s Guide to Florence: It remains amazing that a city of less than a hundred thousand people produced such a disproportionate number of the great sculptors, architects, and painters of the early Renaissance.

King's richly illustrated social history of the Renaissance succeeds as a trusted resource, introducing readers to Europe between —, as well as to the problems of cultural : Margaret L. King.   John Marino’s book argues that, in the face of the dispossession and exploitation of the poor of Naples, the elites mounted fabulous festivals, parties and celebrations, and threw in their lot with the Spanish against the popolo. Indeed court culture emerges as a monstrous seduction of its elites, narcissistic and self-serving.
