This artwork introduces us in the fascinating world of the Italian Renaissance. Towards the end of the 15th Century, Florence’s cultural and scientific level was much more advanced than most European cities. But what we are not told is that Florence’s magical knowledge was also the most advanced in Europe.
Yes, a magic world ruled human beings during the Western Renaissance, and in this world Florence was always ahead the rest of cities. Scholars that were at the same time wizards and astrologers trained their pupils and noble lords.
In that atmosphere of wisdom and magic one of the best artworks in History, Sandro Boticelli’s La Primavera (Spring), is born.
The present article uncovers, at last, all the mysteries that have surrounded this picture from its conception.
Live with me this exciting adventure.
