Abstract:

With the help of 3-D scanning technology, Alexander Armstrong and Dr. Michael Scott explore the romantic city of Florence. They reveal how its wonderful facades and artworks mask a hidden story of intrigue and secrecy and how one powerful family--the Medicis, known as the Godfathers of the Renaissance--was behind it all. They uncover the secrets of one of the most spellbinding achievements of architecture: the dome of Florence's cathedral. And they build a 3D model to reveal just how much of the city masks secret corridors of power that were the foundation of the city's Renaissance glory.
