Right. Hello, everyone. And

...

And welcome to the Art and

...

power one behind buildings and architecture I should say.

...

you think

...

for all my throat there. So this is one of my favorite

...

topics to disguise. And before

...

do you know? A few little house housekeeping rules? One

...

I am, I am the curious historian fashion the boo or pistol.

...

I drinking make our history fun one drink at a time.

...

And tonight, I want to talk about

...

each

...

I love them, but

...

we have some little new way of doing things today.

...

I have put into the Fortune Cookie my Instagram account with anyone thing and live

...

now, all need to do is just give it a little click

...

and it will take you to my Instagram account, and you will see

...

there is a part one images for the Art

...

influence behind buildings.

...

And if you just give that a click, you will see their

...

to, and what we going through those tonight, so it's a way for you to see

...

rather than me constantly just stopping out the fortune cookie for you all.

...

which I'm hoping will be proving doing far more useful.

...

than the dash of the fortune cookie.

...

I also wanna to note that a lot of these images are not my

...

I am using them for academic purposes

...

I not cleaning and right over them. So that way, we can just

...

keep them on the up.

...

Would that being fun?

...

let's let's get into it. So the very first image on part one is

...

the sort of tuscan in region of

...

is be you outlined with

...

florence given the nice big pink circle. Now

...

That said

...

florence was originally a Roman city

...

which was then conquered by Shortening and seventy forty four. And

...

excuse me seven hundred forty four. And

...

it's basically during this time that it then

...

come separate from the Roman.

...

legion, if you will, and it really does come into it own.

...

and this was actually fun fact where the flooring comes from the gold.

...

And because of that points, it's an incredibly incredibly important

...

Making city. And

...

because the one have the goal for and two,

...

It's basically the larger wealth

...

of

...

Italy and most of them because of that.

...

basically, the gold foreign was just

...

universal currency. Everyone used it throughout Western Europe, it was in

...

incredibly valuable. So the people producing the florence we're making

...

find a pretty coming off of bit.

...

and it was just

...

Absolutely. Like, that is what need.

...

florence such an important city and really put on them app.

...

and this is what we see the rise of limited two family.

...

And so with that, I wanna dive into it. And if you click to the next image,

...

on that part one, we have a picture of Giovanni to be

...

she de medici. I put that a friend face because i usually went by Jim giovanni to be

...

kids

...

but his full name is Germany, did be achieved the medici.

...

after he's born in a thirteen sixty die four

...

twenty nine, and he is the Age medici. He's is

...

the original one. This is where we ...a lot of times our historians what kind of

...

signal him as the first. Just incredibly interesting person in

...

incredibly important

...

to sort of the rest of the family. He is the banker

...

to pope Martin the fifth of as well as other popes as during his lifetime.

...

and this position is incredibly

...

prestigious and lucrative. Like, I cannot stress those two things enough to you guys.

...

prestigious and lucrative. And this is how we get the produce family box.

...

right is coming through Giovanni.

...

And so he's is basically working for the pub, and when work for the pope,

...

during this time period, the pope

...

is the most important person in all of Western europe

...

like literally King's report to the pope.

...

he is the embodiment of

...

god on Earth, if you will. For lack of a better way to put it.

...

And so that's what makes them so so important.

...

to the Family because working for one of the most

...

powerful people in the entirety of Western europe you're gonna make a ton of money and that

...

exactly what you have funny it. And so because of that, he basically so much money. He basically like,

...

we're just we're gonna make our own day make their own

...

something pink if you will outside of the people as they called the bank of medici.

...

and this is how family ...not only keeps your wealth, but continues to mess. Well.

...

because basically, banks just make a ton of money during this time period, and it's really, really important to note pat.

...

What I love is also, G Beach as far as

...

history go keith who commissioned the san Church

...

And if you click further down the line, we will see them it's the gates of paradise

...

stores, which were finished by his son ca elder.

...

But fun, actually, if anyone finds themselves in San francisco are busy church,

...

in San Francisco that has the

...

only existing copy of the gates of paradise stores.

...

which just wild, I grew up into the areas

...

so for me, it was very much like, oh, you ...you all don't count the gates of hair

...

by stores. And it's like, no. Only place you can find them. So if you find yourself

...

on the bay area.

...

give it a look. It is so cool and way less than you find.

...

in florence, which leads me very nicely into

...

copy the elder. And so if you guys are

...

looking on the Instagram account. I know we have some new people in here. Welcome. Hello. We are talking about the men that aren't

...

hour influence architecture. And I have done this thing if you click on in

...

through him, the link in the fortune cookie, and you go

...

to part one in my images, you will

...

see oh my posts I should say.

...

you will see all the images we're gonna be talking about today. And so that should help

...

keeping things nice and meat and tidy. Hopefully less fortune cookies or everybody to click on.

...

And so I am an out on the third image of the first

...

part one if you will.

...

and we were talking about customer the elder. And so copy was born in

...

thirteen eighty nine and died in fourteen months sixty four, and I don't love

...

cos the elder. I think he's such a fascinating person as far of the message family goes.

...

he basically like, the classic mafia on those. Human numerous way.

...

into the power of the city. His daddy has all the money he finds all the power because of it.

...

And so he does this, and this is really actually interesting because we seen this a lot.

...

in actually mafia moves today in a lot of

...

I don't wanna say like drug wars, but we see the whole lot with sort of

...

these families, if you want these courthouse health,

...

I'm mean, still human in Italy. And so what happens is is they have all this money

...

and so you use it to

...

basically do a ton of public patron. And when I mean patron I mean building

...

school commissioning are making sure that

...

public works have funny. So government, like these are the government

...

can't reply to the people they provide. And so

...

by doing that, that kinda gets people like. Okay. Right

...

people did it really nice. This kinda how to open up they're giving us money

...

it's really ...like, we can afford that peter. Feelings sound this is great, and so then

...

because of that, they get all of this sway. And so then customer goes, okay. Cool.

...

Now what we're gonna do

...

is we are going to now give you more jobs by doing more

...

building more things doing more public works, build commission more art.

...

and so more people are now on their

...

pain if you will. And so basically, they get all the way up to the government, and then they get rid of the police police.

...

and all of those other formal government entities and kinda start creating your own people

...

one there. And then that's

...

how a family gains all of their powers

...

and that's the government. And that's exactly what

...

did influence the not canto Howard in Florence.

...

What I also love about customer other elders because he's spending oo for money

...

join the win everybody's. He also ...he's commissioned so much art.

...

really, really fascinating.

...

could

...

dealer collector, if you will. And one of if favorite written of

...

Donate was a favorite artist of his. There is this really interesting very

...

cool, unfortunately,

...

because

...

Instagram doesn't like nudity and that is ninety percent of art is new

...

figure i post on my a instagram account.

...

but it is this really fabulous that you put in Donate Pillows

...

David statue in Google google. You will see this

...

gorgeous bronze statue. And you can see actually today at the modular,

...

which was originally the content of the santa maria

...

you'll forgive my Italian pronunciation guys. I have not had enough

...

over. It's a quite come off. My tongue life i wanted to.

...

But that being said that comment is now what the partial museum is today. We you go

...

you it. And I also want to know the reason we're talking about causing law is

...

not only was the important artist history, but he was also really, really important.

...

to putting florence on the map as far as a cultural

...

center. Not only is you commission Auto Var is also bringing in

...

all of these philosophers increase with human.

...

style court. And by that, I mean he's bringing philosophers. It's a place for

...

thinkers. This is very, like, awesome guard. It's really, really exciting time to be

...

I've florence.

...

And so that's cos did cause another the elder. And this is where it's

...

we go to next photo hello of everyone.

...

you're joining, check out the Instagram. We are going through part one at the moment. We are

...

talking about the guy would basically for i of better way to put it.

...

the pointed nipple breast plates.

...

which is Cognitive

...

the first the grand duke

...

which not to be confused with cock elder.

...

there a lot of cosmos guys. So

...

no the Love any and each other. This is a very common thing in our history as well

...

everyone moves each other the same thing, and it's very confusing for us historians or historians, but

...

we will get there.

...

basically, fun time who tier out of power and for of

...

were taken by different army from fourteen ninety four to fifteen twelve.

...

And so we have

...

causing of the grand Duke. We have him become

...

powerful and sort of like the grand Duke photo of

...

florence. You walk good siren to my background then since New York city life on

...

And so he becomes the grind. Now I want to note

...

this is really important. His title is one of the most important

...

pivotal moments in my family history. No one up until his point have received a

...

brand Do title. Now you guys are, like, what does that? Like, what

...

so white who cares is the title. So what's really, really important about this is the Do

...

titles can be

...

only given by the pope himself.

...

So this is the pope basically saying, I as the right hand of God

...

you

...

need to be in power.

...

that is a very, very, very powerful statement to have.

...

and is a very important title to have when it comes to people falling the mind and not trained

...

through your family.

...

And so that's what's really important. So basically, cos comes in

...

he gets the grand Title. He's like, ray Yummy. I am now rinse

...

for lack of a better way to put it because we have to remember guys

...

Italy isn't unified at this point. He is grand Duke of the

...

Region. Fun, Italy wasn't unified and told the American war, basically,

...

that just what that thinking in. What I thinking? And so anyway,

...

this is very interesting because basically,

...

If you look at the family tree,

...

for the Beauty family, which I have put into the post if you kind of scroll down a little bit,

...

scroll through all of the images I should say, in that particular part one,

...

you will see there's a very large family

...

and it it's wild. So the orange is causing all the

...

the older, and then the red is ca mode, the grand duke. And he's so he's like,

...

his nephew twice removed. I ...it's holding.

...

but I die digress. So

...

he basically is brought in because all of these cardinal are like, okay. So

...

how how do we regain power in for? So French gone, how do we, like, fill this void?

...

and they go, oh great. We've got meta. Imagine she's alive. We can manipulate him. It's gonna be great

...

this is how we're gonna make Oo on online.

...

jokes on them. Cos was not about that, And he was like, okay. Cool. Thanks for the power. Now, Like,

...

go off, like, leave me alone. So

...

It's really, really interesting

...

And

...

what he does with the hell.

...

basically

...

solidify. I should say, he had power and his grand

...

title if he married Eleanor. And so

...

she. I mean, this woman is one of my favorite people I've and I need to do a session just on her she's

...

incredible and I adore her. But most importantly, for this

...

particular on topic.

...

she's a royal blood.

...

as of this way, now that he's married to her all of their children

...

will be of literal loyal blood. It won't be a title. People can't argue with.

...

they are loyalty. And this is very very important again,

...

so people aren't you disturbing the family.

...

It's ensuring remember the family line.

...

so so important. So basically,

...

what i little about little in order she also is, like, no. No. No. I'm not just gonna sit around and knit for you, and so she be

...

advisor to cause him mother ground Duke, and he's just she does

...

everything for him. When he can't figure out, she figures how

...

and she's actually the one who helps a

...

sort of revamped the blocks of Vp. She also built

...

the rock of ground over garden and it's

...

really, really fun. We will talk about that as well as the Grand Duke palace.

...

where everybody who lived, I'm in the of that.

...

Now really quickly, I wanna talk about two other people before we get into it.

...

which is their signs. So Connie Mo phenomenon

...

children francesco, the first french nevada.

...

and he is the grim

...

duke at fourteen years old, Basically, it's toddler their passes away and he is not ready for it.

...

does. And so he is a hundred eighty version of his dad. He just wants

...

hide from the world. He not. He's like, just

...

just like me alone, everybody, but he is really important to art history.

...

because he creates a whole bunch of rooms within

...

the black. Most important to today session the studio, which I will talk about

...

later as well as the tribune. In you fifty, again, I we'll talk about.

...

But I wanna talk about his brother for the first.

...

And

...

he was originally a cardinal until his brother passes

...

and then he takes on the grand Fiddle and, like,

...

takes off his cardinal religious robes if you will.

...

would we can see in this portrait of him sitting be there with a cardinal, and it's very likely

...

crown the Northern Renaissance style, outside of his window. I wanna that ...it's

...

it's great.

...

gray portrait right. Like, what a great way to show how?

...

And so what's important about him for Fernando is

...

he's someone who basically creates the work salary.

...

This is what really puts horns on the map for pediatric.

...

which I will talk about later as well as.

...

in inside lorenzo, which I will talk about again later down the road.

...

No.

...

things I wanna discuss really quickly. You will see if you keep flying through that

...

the family lineage edge all of the Video family members, like, cool.

...

so many. So many of them, and you will also see the gates of paradise stores.

...

So things I wanna talk about though too is signaling and power.

...

And this is really important when we're talking about about florence.

...

and when we're going through these buildings, the next time you safely like visit for in,

...

I this is

...

basically, what you should keep an eye for. And women

...

remember the three g's rule.

...

we have three g's of art and

...

right now in history.

...

gold

...

God.

...

glory. Literally, the majority of history and our history can be summed up into those three g's.

...

it's done for goals, which is means we wanna a ton of money. We're gonna do it because we need

...

financial backing, whatever

...

we're doing it for god.

...

spanish. Means I say more.

...

glory.

...

we see again, sort of con divorce. We see this as well.

...

for things like Christopher Columbus going out and such like that.

...

those

...

all of those things in history in our history can be really summed up.

...

into those routines. Of course that doesn't multiplied everything, but I

...

just wanna say does a very nice way to remember it all. And so that being said,

...

we will see this time and time again with the cheese florence, and when they're building buildings or we've

...

furnishings built

...

buildings remodeling, if you will, that access is everything

...

access to come forms of proximity. How close can you physically get

...

to the people and power.

...

access to knowledge.

...

the ability to be educated during this time period is

...

whose so so valuable ties? Like, monty

...

we're literally just working, go to leave

...

wake up, go back to work again. Like, people were not learning. Most people didn't know how to write.

...

and that is really important to have knowledge, and then

...

also, access can come in a way of display. Are being able to access things

...

that our own display in these grand without the person being there.

...

we will see this we'll go through example is gonna be great.

...

That being said, we see in the

...

last image apartment one. For those of who are joining, I just wanna quickly say hello and refresh

...

Welcome to the Mini Art Power in Flor architecture.

...

Thank you, Megan. I know you also are a big fan of Florence.

...

So what I've done to kind of

...

live things up and make it a little bit easier for everybody rather than the mad dash for the portrait cookie.

...

is I put my Instagram account into the fortune cookie,

...

And I basically just

...

put in part one part two part three part four, part five,

...

of images that I will be discussing today. So that way, we don't click

...

won't get finger fatigue, if you will. And so

...

I just ...basically, I am in part one. I'm at the very, very last where we are looking at

...

the out

...

which is a great example, and I just want to quickly it, like,

...

go through this when we are looking at, like, the physical builds of these architectural

...

structures of points.

...

And so what's really really fun is this holds true of a lot of Italian buildings

...

is that the first floor is very much a public space. On that first full white

...

anyone can kind of enter it, You don't really need much to get in

...

it's

...

it's open for presidency I if you will. But what's important is the next we're up the second

...

for is a private space. So, again, guys we're seeing this access this

...

symmetry is very, very important, and we're signaling the

...

the Youtube family by saying. Oh, sorry. These are like, private of apartment. You can't come up

...

you the Ip section only.

...

And that's very, very important and again, on the third level, we would have even a higher level

...

of the Nest, If you will the Vp section of the building.

...

The reason i use the black of Is because it is I'm very interesting.

...

three levels. So there are really good examples out there in the world I wish

...

I could show you image wise, but they just aren't as clean.

...

as this. Also, fun fact, I love this as well you and

...

we see was very frequently in Italian Homes.

...

The first war is usually for,, like, the ground for you

...

is for the summer apartments as we like to call them. So in super high,

...

you stay known on the ground floor, It's nice and cool. And then on the winter, you go to the

...

second for the first war you though.

...

And so you're up there where the heat rises. They we see doesn't we know this historians and art

...

four because they are basically their so

...

in the rooms, which is great for us because it's a very, like,

...

you cannot attest, but it's like, nope. That's that that

...

supposed be warm toasty in here. That's why They have stove.

...

Oh, I wanna talk very quickly about the etiquette of the space.

...

there is a sort of etiquette a

...

and the procession of the rooms. And you'll hear this a lot in more a history

...

it's the procession. And that is very, very important because it talks about good etiquette.

...

And this is again.

...

knowledge is super super powerful. And so at the courtyard year,

...

you could be really embarrassed by not going into the correct rooms for the correct type

...

things. And it was quite a little so pod.

...

taboo sometimes even to do that. So again, this knowledge as the way to signal power.

...

It's also basically going through the various rooms and what access

...

to certain films. You had etiquette of that. Also,

...

show that you showed off your power as an individual.

...

again, in proximity to the people of power. So the course you could get

...

busy family members, the more power you had, and you got to basically find all of your

...

lovely. Like, what can you look at me? I'm super.

...

which I think that's a really great thing that even though oldest this time, like, the

...

still have the concept of Vip is

...

that's a subject that's just not gonna be going on my any anytime soon guys.

...

That said let's about. The next one so you click home,

...

And we're gonna go to part two, and you'll see the plots of.

...

Again, these images are not all of my own, and I just wanna make that

...

quick will note of that. So I tried to give credit our canon images

...

But if anyone has any questions about them, please do Hear me. Also pop it in to the chat here

...

at end, I will have a q and a section, slash like discussion.

...

come up on stage, say hello, like, all of it.

...

always absolutely happy to have you guys up here in the chat. But, yeah. So

...

first things for let's talk out the plots of that gale. This is like ...I feel like we can't talk about florence

...

about talking about the black of.

...

it is basically ...so unless Eleanor

...

She really ...she got quite the short out of the stick on this one.

...

because

...

what happens is is

...

this becomes the grant.

...

residents if you. This becomes the grand Residence. So the principle

...

president of the Royal family for lack of a right way to upon it.

...

And so it's originally built in offices from

...

the Republican of Florence in twelve ninety nine, and then also double lose support

...

I mean, you gonna look at the lots of back you're like, well, yeah. No

...

like and as a ford. That's not a palace under of the

...

four. So it's set up like that. And so

...

had to go in and, like, do she's

...

has like most monumental renovation project ever. There was not a lot of

...

Pi is at that point. So plus server doing it.

...

And so

...

originally, it's known as the lots of those you know

...

And it's once basically move from the lots of

...

you know the let me cheese family into the black. That's when their gains are formal tidal black

...

because in italian that means the old

...

palace.

...

So Causing know takes it over in fifteen forty, and this is where we start seeing it as the

...

the residents of you of the family.

...

Most importantly, I wanna talk about it because we see all of that great

...

different levels and access.

...

And I wanna talk about the next image, which is

...

the the, the the over the five hundred

...

And this is how of power and prestige of the family.

...

basically, all of the images you see on the wall

...

are just basically military conquest. I'm gonna do you family.

...

and they're just like you come in in your like, just absolutely you're like a

...

and compared to these paintings or longest.

...

I really cannot stress the type of abuse you guys.

...

you're just massive painting. And so it's you're looking up you're like

...

don't wanna mess with these video you guys. They doing

...

quite good in battle. And so, again, we're showing displays of power.

...

we're making people submit to the power of them family.

...

Which I think is really, really good to know

...

what I also love is in sicilian. So basically,

...

our good friend, Georgia Bizarre was taken on the high

...

coffee.

...

the grand duke, and he does our cousin him goes great. Listen. That's sorry. Love this room, but I wanted to

...

bigger. Like, let's make it bigger. So they take

...

the feeling, and they looked to up. So if you seen a little wine of windows,

...

on the left and right of the image, and then that big old grand painted feeling of

...

off it. That was originally where the windows were, and then they bumped up.

...

a couple of feet, if you will, I when I say a couple of feet. I mean, i'm probably asking assuming me around six

...

up. And so that ...which was a monumental task

...

at the time like, that just would have been so expensive.

...

it's so expensive guys. And what's great about the painted feelings?

...

is ...this is where we see

...

a different type of display of power and prestige

...

And what it is that it involves a ton of symbolism

...

many of you may be like, okay. I don't understand like, why do Have count? It's matter.

...

Okay.

...

this is really important because cos, the grand duke is basically linking himself

...

to caesar or who would

...

born at the time. He's he was a capital for

...

that's let's just put it that way. The astrology was really, really important.

...

two people and during this time period of astrology.

...

is a astronomy. Like, there is no difference. They are the same thing.

...

So for cognitive grand duke, to be like, hey, I came with a power during the chopper recording.

...

fine. And then see there was born during the cover corn. I by default.

...

payment caesar's power,

...

I improving my royal lineage to you all bow down except my power or do not come out

...

This room is very much a fox. It is a train.

...

flax. So I wouldn't just wanna know that as will do because the time and time again

...

signal things through astronomy and astrology.

...

in our during this time period. So this is a very common being. This is an unusual

...

well but it's important to note for this particular session.

...

which that being said, I wanna talk about the next room, which is on the first four.

...

which is the studio is a private studio though

...

This is incredible You actually impressed that this if you take the secret tours of.

...

which is really, really cool. If you go to the of back, you go to buy your ticket. You asked for the secret tour.

...

and they will take you on It's about, like, ten people, I think, max per

...

session, like,

...

tour if you will. And it's about an hour and is

...

so much fun. You get to see all the really cool back

...

the behind the scenes, if you will, then you normally can't visit when you walk

...

into the of, you can see the edition.

...

when you do go in, just

...

wander in and type you to general mission take.

...

not an issue. But if you wanna see the studio though, you have to get this through tour.

...

It's really cool and that's room is so much fun. And, again,

...

We have to remember, for just goes not like his father cosmos.

...

key is a classic introvert. He wants the hide away from the world. He doesn't want to

...

see people. Like you literally is, like, please leave me alone. The a majority with the rain.

...

but we can see here actually, this really fun room which he commissioned.

...

And it's on, like, I said the second four. So if you open up one of the panels on that back,

...

far wall there. It actually looks down into

...

the the whole the five hundred. And it is

...

so so so so cool, and this a great way for him to keep

...

and on on everything going on down there without people having publish. I won't that

...

like I I don't want that so much. So

...

So it's very on prem for Covid.

...

But what's really fun about that is well to is he virtually not knowledge

...

in this room again, knowledge proximity displays powered wealth.

...

And so he's showing up all of the knowledge of

...

things in python.

...

basically, on the painting floor walls, we see the elements. So we see a

...

science this background.

...

was really fun as somebody's of panel will open up, and the behind some of the panels will be

...

specimens of what they're talking about. So one of my favorites is behind the money, the goal

...

is actually a little secret staircase. If I remember properly, goes up.

...

to his super secret banking room, where he kept all his money and, like, did all his financial

...

which I think it's so wild and I'd like that you would have had it.

...

I mean you can always fit two people in there at a time. It is a tiny tiny little room.

...

on top of an already tiny studio yellow. But I think that's great. And so it's

...

really really fun room. It's

...

again, this idea of only a few people could fit into it to the

...

Symmetry of being a allowed into this room is she has such an incredible

...

display of

...

power to people. It's the Vi room, if you will.

...

It's really fun. That means that I wanna talk about on that

...

same level. We have another room, which is the Vi p, which is

...

the chocolate of Origin Philadelphia, and we have it. It's

...

her remember popular the name is the us.

...

And so it's crazy in fifteen forty, and I love it because it

...

such a great example of b and mannerisms.

...

so good. So she commissions Ron Vo, And if you find yourself informed,

...

there incredible examples of

...

we're not out the entire city. It he's just

...

he's master. Use a master for a reason.

...

And so we have this lovely trip. And

...

Eleanor creates it, and she basically is

...

I would say eighteen year old when she's commissioning this, this i'm gonna

...

smart. Like, at eighteen years old, she's realizing like, what she decorate

...

programs with.

...

it will signal her power

...

and to show off the people that you don't mess with me.

...

and I love that. And up this supposed religious alter

...

so this beautiful political.

...

What's great about it is we have on the

...

on the right ...or ...I'm sorry. The last excuse me the right.

...

as we have seen John the baptist who was originally argued he's just swapped out

...

because the recent family was like, this a way. This is a bit too much.

...

rip but too much. We need to roll it back a little bit, which I think is hysterical.

...

And so basically,

...

we have practice, which is important to note because same talk about this is a dependency of

...

warrants. And what i love told you is within the painting,

...

smack out in the middle. We've got very holding Jesus as

...

coming down from the cross. The woman and green. Guess a guys.

...

It's illinois, should

...

front and center showing off how important she is. She's like, look at me

...

I'm front Roast tickets to ...to look being brought down from the cross.

...

which is super Market, but totally, like,

...

on brand for a lot of religious art food normal.

...

But behind her, there's a man in yellow with a very long beard

...

and I wanna point to know because

...

key is

...

thought to be ca himself.

...

cousin mother the the grand duke, and that is

...

I'm sorry. It's ...oh, it's

...

saint John,

...

no. No. I'm sorry. Think cosmos.

...

too many things guys. We need talk to a go about that tell them to

...

chill out. I did that it was a joke manner. I absolutely believe a not

...

to address. Now please don't take that.

...

in an event. I do not mean that in any way. But that use that

...

rights

...

So Eleanor showing ...look at my family. We're super important. We were there when jesus was speaking

...

taking down from the cross. And so this is a ken. I want to know this is on the second four,

...

this is a Vip place, especially a chapel cube of

...

cast who visiting would have come into this space

...

and they would have seen Eleanor sitting here front center while they were praying. It's like

...

her me like, I see you. I see you. You're talking to god. I can hear it all.

...

by kind of thing. It it's very, very important to note that

...

this is such a giant lack of power on everybody.

...

Thank you're, Johnny. It is funny wild the family is the wild.

...

But Debbie, said I'm gonna stop rambling on about this one because we can see it

...

the next image there is

...

the image of ...the join

...

I have no idea if the right panel will viewing it if that right panel would actually

...

the original panel if it was swapped out for something. Else.

...

I I'm unfortunately I have no research to know it. If anyone knows anything,

...

Please please please come up on stage And tell me later because I really wanna know. Like this we've been

...

are mystery for me, and I would love to know those things.

...

But that means that, let's go into the last room that we're gonna talk about and the

...

st Robot, we have sorry.

...

again, coming in, this is the semi public space for on the second floor.

...

visitors are allowed to come but, of course, these are visitors.

...

And what is really, really, really important to note about this room is that the map skies

...

again, knowledge knowing where you were in the world was such

...

not common knowledge. This was really difficult. Why people knew about

...

the regions. Right? But most of the time, you had to be granted access or have a reason

...

for weaving your home and moving people they move like we move today.

...

And so to be able to see a maps of the the entire globe with the along her

...

region of

...

like, all the reasons of Italy was such a giant

...

power of, like, look at all the knowledge I have, so i love about these rooms

...

cabinets, basically, causing the the grand you put behind them specimens.

...

that you could open up the Door and specimens of that region. And I think

...

specimen, I mean things like have bits of wood minerals, dirt,

...

I

...

i tax the journey perhaps from that region, Like, all of it would have been behind it, which is

...

such a giant, like, look at my knowledge. Look at the acts I have to these things like,

...

that is. So, like, only high level people would have had that.

...

And so we're again, we're seeing as with

...

family, and i'm so so important

...

But not being said, I'm realized. I'm also, like,

...

rambling on and on and on as I do.

...

normally, so I'm gonna try and speed this up little bit guys with bear with me here.

...

But the next I wanna talk about is you feed the gallery

...

we are in part three. I promise this one be quick because there's

...

one room, I wanna talk about the new feed.

...

But what I learned with about new fifty is basically searching off our offices for

...

custom grand. Because they kicked all the government many people out the plots of that clearly had to go somewhere.

...

put them in the building next door. You can see it in the image of part three, the first one.

...

the plaza.

...

hiding just there in the far left corner.

...

And so I do recommend if you have ...if you are important, you have to go to. It is

...

a moss. I will not. Like, I

...

It's such great.

...

beautiful music museum on. Such an incredible collection.. Yes my again. Absolutely.

...

And so with the morning, again, we have

...

all these government offices, which actually makes for a really great museum space once everyone

...

leave, you know what I mean? It was it's converted very beautifully in you

...

In fact, is actually where they held the statues originally.

...

they had thought of maybe putting the family family or collection in

...

the office space, but then they realize that. Like, i, now we'll just put it in our palace when we're building the plot

...

boots.

...

And so they ...that's where all the art stands today for the most

...

part. And when they ...the family were empowered, That's where It wasn't with the plot So.

...

rather than the. No. You knew you you see him.

...

But what I wanna talk about is actually from Francesco the first

...

he built one of the most important rooms in New Gallery, which is the tr.

...

And this is a highly

...

highly influential attraction.

...

on the Grand tour and brings in a huge international crowd

...

if you wanna know more about the grand, you can hit up my

...

sober counterpart, if you will, which is be curious part for you.

...

And I have talked about it on my website. I do a little brief

...

of what is a grand? So if you have any questions about that, recommend going how does the look.

...

what I love about this?

...

is this is people can come and look at all of this really

...

cool mini collection without needing a family remember to be there to s

...

squirt them. Again, guys, this is like, that's how powerful it means you were. They're like, yeah. I go on. Like

...

looking fancy stuff, who cares like too busy running the

...

the region anyway, like five. And so, again, the

...

really, really powerful move. Not just anybody who do that.

...

it was usually been very well who meet

...

families. Have you the do it?

...

But that means that, I wanna talk very very quickly about this particular scene, which it's the new loyal collection.

...

it was actually seated by Johan stephanie is called the Tribune of, and it was

...

I dealt with paint.

...

for queen Charlotte. And if anyone is like, queens Charlotte that sounds familiar.

...

what. Richard, guys,

...

Queen Charlotte.

...

that woman.

...

Often was like her

...

or her go to painter, and she commissioned a ton of work by him. And so he painted this

...

but it's so exciting about this particular painting and this is my favorite painting of all time.

...

is

...

This is historically accurate.

...

this is what the room looked like. When he painted it and be, I believe this

...

seventeen hundreds. I can't remember off the top of my head right now, Guys.

...

But it is ...so so important we see

...

actual representation of real pieces in limited

...

the Family collection and how they were home, like, this is

...

rare. We don't get these things anymore is so invited. I also want to know

...

that we see ...we can see our like the tension up here front inside.

...

that's the in the guys. You can go and see how is the downstairs gallery spaces.

...

like, that is the ...we have rat house We have on hold right, Like,

...

This is so cool.

...

who love it. And again, this is

...

This room itself was designed as a giant

...

flex. It was knowledge of power. And so when we see an actual room is off

...

had right. And so during a time period, they believe that e was

...

the like, eight hundred objects were a way to be close to

...

I don't exactly know the the religious

...

reason behind not only know is that that it is one it is, but it was important and that's

...

that's how I was.

...

And I love you that the see done was done in a celestial manner.

...

And the few of the room is the four element in the floor, which gives beautiful

...

marble mail, which is represents the earth which we see

...

again, green and red puff, and also, you can't see it in this image. And I'm so sorry you

...

but it's painted animals along the basis of the floors and, like,

...

the walls. It it's so cool. This is like natural, which is

...

beautiful in the dom, which you can if you go to the next image,

...

you can see water represented in little squiggly lines. And if you go back to the

...

painting by your hands off, You'll see that isn't same.

...

design guys. This the same design it hasn't changed effort.

...

all of these centuries, which is so cool.

...

but I also draw to the mother of Pearl inlay in this

...

feeling that represents water.

...

mother Pearl was

...

social expensive guide. It comes from, sheldon and so that would require

...

access to the c, which is

...

very again, that's super important that access.

...

that ability to ship things in import.

...

luxury goods is very, very expensive, and that's a great win often people that

...

what look at all the money I have it important an the entire feeling of mother pearl

...

show

...

oh my god.

...

Right? We see as well as the law has

...

red cells that represents fire. And if you go back to the mean

...

ceiling center, you will see also that there isn't he

...

the lantern is they call it, but it's

...

it's a hanging lantern. Like, we know what that's today. It's kinda like Koopa.

...

for lack.

...

better term, and that was allow wind to through it string the hot

...

summers, you're gonna nice breeze coming through the ceiling and the other windows.

...

again, representing air. So we have the four elements. We have this celestial seal

...

room that's just showing off the op and the wealth

...

of the to meet your family and the fact that anyone and their mother could come in and just view this.

...

it's such a really important part of understanding

...

the Family power in Florence and

...

how they're representing themselves to the outside world.

...

right now, they're going on and on on about that. Let's move on to the next building.

...

which is going to be

...

one of my favorites, I'm we're gonna talk again, very briefly on just a couple of rooms and there's the.

...

So which is commissioned originally by luke, which is where the name comes from.

...

was a friend and supporter a cosmos elder. How caused him other Brand duke

...

cos older.

...

and unfortunately here isn't a lot written on the early build of the plot. So

...

so we don't really know that much about it a until we have Eleanor come in and buy it in

...

team forty nine, ten years after her and Cognitive are married.

...

And so she's gets the work she rolls up this place and says, okay. This is gonna be our guest residence. I I

...

just I can

...

have an entire, like, court life in the plots of. So we're gonna use like,

...

we're gonna outsource people

...

into the block of beauty. And so she builds it up and she really does work towards making that.

...

space, which is really, really important.

...

But i also wanna talk about the fact that they also, as the way, to be super vip,

...

Is a solid corridor, which if you go to that next picture,

...

It's incredible. It's it's

...

please everyone knows the pon. It's the old bridge. But that little

...

bit at the top right, We have all little buildings, and then there's, like, this terra

...

style

...

I should say, like, it

...

it's

...

it's very italian. It's

...

beige.

...

the biggest walk above. That is the facade corridor

...

it connects the philosophy And few feeds the galleries.

...

two

...

each other.

...

So is it a super Vip corridor or that only the ...like, the family and guess

...

could have to views

...

and that is so important because, again, now they don't have to be associated with people.

...

the common people of the bridge, Like,

...

to, even the day when you go to the parts of, just or not swipe at the point vacuum.

...

it is super duper crowded like our tourist I. It was exactly my hundreds of years ago.

...

except it was merchants and people living in the city and, like, oh the has buffalo of daily life.

...

so mini said, no. No. No. We're not gonna go through this. Build us a corridor.

...

right. Let's do it and only does

...

Unfortunately,

...

it would bomb to the nineteen nineties. And so it's been close to the public

...

ever since then. Good

...

work on the street is that supposedly, it is going to be opening up again, post pandemic

...

which is super exciting for us are your historians because it's like, well,

...

what that they put in the corners as we know the quarter would been filled with all these beautiful sum

...

Decorative art things cabinets painting sculpture

...

what does they gonna put back in there? I want to know

...

I need to know. Yes Megan brings over a really good point ahead before they were recall. Yeah.

...

the many you were doing it, They were all about that life. But going back to

...

the lots. It is absolutely worth fifth I again, this is where we see a lot

...

collections using beautiful rooms, Napoleon stays

...

the philosophy even after the video family fell from power.

...

it is still seeing as a very, very important palace.

...

and I really cannot stress it enough as beautiful the interiors.

...

gorgeous guys. It is so cool.

...

And in the opal dollar, you've actually see the bulk of the Middle renaissance collection, which I think is

...

very point. But I wanna talk to actually about the bit outside.

...

This is where we see

...

Eleanor really shine. She is basically

...

she's going around doing all these things and she's making it like look as fab as possible.

...

and then she gets the crowd she I wanna make this mind. I'm gonna have fun with this.

...

And so what she ties is since she's originally from Naples, She brings in her naples

...

upbringing if you will and combines it with

...

florence. And I love this because it's

...

such a beautiful unique structure, two points.

...

And what's important about this is in naples, the paint anyone has been enabled

...

serena summer, You know, it is up jillian degrees.

...

in naples. And the south of Italy so hot why isn't it so hot there during the summers?

...

And so what people would do is they would go down to the coastal lines. They would go into cave.

...

or gro, and they would cool off with the nice

...

cool prayers is coming in away from the sunlight, and you would get a nice

...

just kind of cool areas from relaxing. And so, basically,

...

in our crazy staff. She creates her own version of a product where there is none to be had influence.

...

and it's absolutely beautiful. It's breathtaking, and we see in the very front image here,

...

the midi symbolism in the fine. We have this the tight

...

type architecture going on decorations.

...

it didn't gave it. I will note that if you go to see,

...

the dorado, It is closed, but they open it at the top of every hour.

...

for, like, ten minutes. And all you need is like a ticket into the Bowl gardens

...

you can just wander up and, like, wait for them to open it up, and they will. And you can wondering in in this

...

so cool guys. I highly recommend it. It's

...

very, very fine. And when I thought about this particular one,

...

and she creates a garden of vibe,

...

And if you click the next picture, you will see the stomach tight

...

type motif, but the field pains are beautiful. It is garden of mean, like, clearly, we have

...

giant corners. We have beers. We have

...

I think that's a bull. I don't know. We have goats.

...

Everything's come together under, like, this beautiful movie guard

...

Of course, the video two family is bringing everyone together because they're so powerful

...

Again, guys, we're showing this display of power. The family are like, look at us

...

we are creating a garden of union for you here Florence.

...

but also, fun fact. This would have been a place where you could

...

when water is well too, it was designed to

...

give you the effect of being your wonder without being your water.

...

which we is really, really cool. And we see in the last bit.

...

this sort of shepherd with his little like sheep again, on the tight

...

type

...

A structure if you will, really, really interesting.

...

in running water what's happened in the fountain up there the front as well as that little well there.

...

and this is actually where

...

Michelangelo had created the

...

the bound slaves. So if anyone knows the mountain plays, you know they sit in the loop today.

...

they were originally commissioned to be put into this gro.

...

That says mini, and michael we're not on good terms all of time

...

and the

...

is what ended up in the balance that It's not been there. But to the day, if you were to go today,

...

Kevin.

...

allowing type thing. You would see that they put replicas

...

of the bound slaves into the places where they five.

...

that the ...statues were originally going to go, which I think is

...

so cool and super fun.

...

No. That being said.

...

I wanna talk about the last one, which is the

...

ultimate. Look at us. We are the video chain. We are the most influential people and

...

all of Florence, and that is the

...

and the commodity plane should be

...

And so basically, this is

...

we've taken over an original designer of philippines, which is this travels

...

here as that you see in part five, and they build upon it.

...

And so they built these two pieces, and they commissioned to build

...

the center rule about, which is the new.

...

And we see night day Dawn and Dusk.

...

Again, I don't know how long these images are gonna be up for him.

...

Instagram may not

...

be used super happy about the Mips shows. So

...

Instagram and I are gonna have some.

...

issues for art. But that being inside

...

it is really important to note that this is, again, my con is supposed to be

...

four of them, He only finished tube over he left her room. And so that's

...

That's why we only have two, but we have dos dawn

...

night and day. And the only reason I can tell the difference between the two sides is

...

because one of the women i'm in the

...

third picture

...

part five. She has a little crescent moon in her hair

...

and that is only reason I can tell a difference the table. No.

...

...yeah. So anyway, it's supposed family many terms.

...

They are not intrigued there. They are downstairs actually in a

...

crypto to the family record words. They keep all of the two family members, bodies.

...

Now to get to More, but that that is what it is. And so if you keep home three, you'll will see

...

all these classic displays of power and the wealth.

...

it's just using pieces of marble

...

worse she's so expensive guys. Like, this ...there's room been painted

...

and build out of pure goals

...

as far as I'm concerns, like, that's how expensive. This room wise.

...

the most translation and say to build. And I mean, you guys commissioner My michelangelo at the peak of his career.

...

would have been very, very expensive. And so they're showing off, like, even in the afterlife life,

...

we have little of money. You're super important ...this is

...

almost like, go her back to the days of the sorrows.

...

and then and we see an easier and things like that.

...

But specifically with the chapel

...

of the princes. And this is started by causing gratitude duke and

...

finished by ferdinand Francis his grandson. Or ...I'm sorry. His son his

...

second sign.

...

So. There too many for example in the family. And so, again, like I said the Are not into

...

in these tunes that we see in the room in the chapel.

...

they are downstairs. You have to go down into it.

...

definitely recommend if you like things like that,

...

so cool, really, really interesting role queries, and other religious art artifacts as well

...

on there.

...

I also wanna to note that this is

...

just this abnormal. This is this is where we see the creation of

...

the opposite that yet, which I'm probably

...

absolutely but trains forgive my italian again, guys. But this is the workshop of the semi pressure

...

so

...

For those of you who don't know Future is basically a term

...

for cutting and fitting highly polished, cleared stone create images.

...

this storm is sort of like glued stone by Stone, almost like a little white paint numbers.

...

if you will into a base.

...

And so it's it's like a little powerful, and it

...

the work the craftsman that goes into and the workshop afford

...

puts florence and on them map. Mostly time up to this point, florence of importing goods.

...

now they're exporting. This signal the export of quarantine goods.

...

to the rest of the world. And I mean, to this day, people will get an arm fight

...

over, like,

...

whether or not, like,

...

This is

...

quarantine table if it's a Roman future doors he,

...

what is more valuable

...

the craftsmanship is just

...

press. I cannot explain it after you guys.

...

we keep going to the images image, you

...

other examples of peter and, like, especially the fourteenth crest

...

which had

...

bits again of

...

mother Pearl in ...someone was building

...

that is high level craftsmanship. And, again, for the major you build an entire

...

chapel under this super expensive material.

...

and super expensive

...

highly trained professionals. It's such a giant look at us. We have

...

little of money. We are so important. We will be here forever kind of thing. And it's

...

it's so cool.

...

It's

...

it just absolutely. I love it's

...

oppressed even plus fun fact really good place to go when you're super

...

pod during this homework if you can find yourself forward to summer,

...

go here. It'll be nice and cool. Yeah. Anyone who's been forward

...

with an old noise kid

...

really really hot. So, yeah, it's

...

I mean, i haven't we see the time time you ago gonna each you symbolism.

...

loyalty symbolism crowns on top of the tombs, things like that.

...

I I cannot stress it enough as well as we've got our

...

are necessary feelings, things like that the apostles, the life

...

Christ, things like that. Absolutely important.

...

to any good chapel during this time period. And with that

...

said thank you, everybody for me so as I work my way through this,

...

I know I went a bit longer than I expected.

...

I get really excited about the family. So that be fun

...

I would love to open this up if anyone has questions comments

...

discussion, bring it to me. I am ready

...

And in the meantime while we wait for everybody, I just want to know as well to you.

...

there is a really fun house well the museum the store a house

...

florence. Called of

...

and it is basically, it's in new city center.

...

and it was built like the Dominant five family around the mid fourteenth century.

...

and it was purchased in fifteen seventy eight

...

the arch family and the ec commissioner

...

it's a whole thing. That's confusing. That this whole house is just deeply confusing.

...

And so

...

thought the family holds this house until eighteen thirty, and then divided into several flats.

...

and suffers a really severe damage.

...
