The de’ Medici Dynasty, which created the Italian Renaissance, symbolizes unparalleled historical contributions to art, politics, banking, cuisine, medicine, accounting, philanthropy, commerce, geography, agriculture, religion, textiles, and fashion. Even America itself would not exist as we know it without the de’ Medicis financing Queen Isabella’s investment in Columbus. The de’ Medicis revolutionized the banking business, inventing the first paper check. But it is in the world of art that their contributions to the world are most greatly known and felt.
