    One of the most famous pieces during the medieval period was “O Viridissima Virga”, which was composed by Hildegard von Bingen during ca 1140 - 1179.

    Florence in 15th century contributed immensely to the world in every aspect. It is unimaginable to think of world history, particularly facets such as art, literature, architecture, politics, economics and science without acknowledging and praising renaissance Florence for leaving an indelible mark on not only Italy but also the rest of the world. The chosen period is one of the most prominent in the history of Florence in terms of politics, art and economics of the region. 1450 onwards Florence saw the rule of the Medici family, who were de facto rulers due to their patronage to the pope as well as renaissance artists, despite the establishment of a republic.
