Magnifico: The Brilliant Life and Violent Times of Lorenzo de' Medici by Miles Unger

Loved this book. Interesting concept that a ruler is not only admired for his political or economic expertise. Art MATTERED in this age, and part of Lorenzo's strength lay in his devoted commitment to art. I think it always difficult to bring historical figures to life and this is very well done here
