THE AGE OF THE MEDICI: Episode 3
“Leon Battista Alberti: Humanism”
Directed by Roberto Rossellini • 1973 • Italy
Roberto Rossellini's three-part THE AGE OF THE MEDICI is like a Renaissance painting come to life: a portrait of fifteenth-century Florence, ruled by the Medici political dynasty. With a lovely score from composer Manuel de Sica (son of Vittorio), this grand yet intimate work is a storybook conjuring of a way of life and thought.
