A detailed map of Renaissance Italy
Florence in Italy is the location where
the Italian Renaissance begins. This city is
ruled by effective leaders, Medici family.
They use funds to build roads and sewers,
and donate money to help support the
development of the arts in their city. The
result is that Florence becomes one of the
wealthiest cities in all of Western Europe.
San Lorenzo is in Florence, Italy.
Church: San Lorenzo It is created by Filippo Brunelleschi in
1421 to 1440. Its construction system
is bearing mansonry. Ringed by
windows at its base, the dome is
partitioned by ribs into twelve webs,
each with a segmentally curved base
line. The scheme of this church by the
geometric patterns by the dark gray
stone is the most inﬂuential
contributions to the evolution of
The Medici Family are wealthy family in
Florence during Renaissance period.
They are avid supporters of the
humanities. They donate money to help
support the development of the arts in
Many of the Renaissance popes who rule
the city of Rome use tax money to hire
artists and sculptors to create art pieces
for ﬁlling the new buildings. They also
amass a massive collection of literary
works and they store in an attractive
library. The consequence of the efforts of
the popes , Rome becomes the center of
the Italian Renaissance.
Architecture of Rome
Palazzo Massimo is in Rome, Italy.
It is created by Baldassare Peruzzi in
1527 to 1536. Its construction
system is cut stone bearing masonry.
The unusual convex facade of the
Palazzo Massimo stands on the
foundations of an old Roman theater
and curves along the old Papal Way.
The location of Venice which is near in
the Mediterranean Sea makes Venice ideal
for trade. Many in Venice grow wealthy,
which allow artists to afford the ﬁner
pleasures of art and the humanities.
Venice quickly becomes world famous for
the high quality of art and literature.
Architecture of Venice
Church: San Giorgio Maggiore
San Giorgio Maggiore is in Venice, Italy.
It is created by Andrea Palladio in 1560
to 1580. Its construction system is
bearing masonry. The church's facade is
scaled to present a public face to the
town of Venice. It dominates and partially
obscures the brick body of the church
behind it, while it reﬂects the interior
space of the nave and its side chapels.
The gondola is a traditional, ﬂat-bottomed
Venetian rowing boat. For centuries
gondolas are once the chief means of
transportation and most common
watercraft within Venice. The gondola is
never poled as the waters of Venice are too
deep. Gondolas often were ﬁtted with a
"felze," a small open cabin, to protect the
passengers from sun or rain.
HOW TO GET
Getting around by land
For most italian during the Renaissance traveling by land is limited
to the local fair or farmer’s market. Getting from point A to point B
by land during the Renaissance is not easy. Roads are little more
than rocky pathways, and could be dangerous, with bandits waiting
to pounce on unsuspecting travelers. The very wealthy travels with
dozens of men-at-arms for protection for this reason.
Common vehicles for traveling on land during the Renaissance
include horses, pack mules, wagons and for the wealthy, coaches.
The most common way to get around on land is on foot. And it was
usually the most efficient.
Getting around by water
Merchants, missionaries, soldiers, students and pilgrims are the
most likely to use sea travel during the Renaissance. As trade and
exploration increase during the Renaissance, overseas travel became
more popular. Though you can travel to distant lands by ship, it is
not without serious dangers.
In many parts of Western Europe, water travel was also popular for
short distances. Rivers, canals and lakes offered much quicker travel
time than by land. However, river travel was not always reliable. In
dry times water levels could drop too low for barges or boats.

MANNER AND CUSTOM
RENAISSANCE TABLE MANNERS
Through the 1400s, food was served in a long trencher.
Wealthy households would have some type of metal trencher.
The very poor may have substituted a hollowed out loaf of
bread in place of wooden trencher. Through the mid 1500s,
the trencher slowly disappeared, and individual plates and
forks were introduced to diners.
A few rules of etiquette that were expected of diners
*No dipping meat directly into the salt dish.
*No picking ones teeth with a ﬁnger or knife.
*No spitting across the table.
RENAISSANCE WEDDING CUSTOMS
Laws relating to Marriage
Marriage laws began to evolve during the Renaissance. The
Council of Westminster decreed in 1076 that no man should
give his daughter or female relative to anyone without priestly
blessing. Later councils would decree that marriage should
not be secret but held in the open. But it wasn't until the 16th
century Council of Trent that decreed a priest was required to
perform the betrothal ceremony.
Grooms, on the average, were 14 years older than their
brides. Noble women sometimes didn't marry until the age of
24, but this was rare. More than 3/4 were married before they
HOW TO STAY

The Bubonic plague is a disease that was most prevalent during the Renaissance
and the extreme number of people die of the bubonic plague.
There is no known treatment for the plague all the people could do was suffer until
they die because that was most likely your fate.

carried over on rats that are coming from Asia on ships and being let into Europe
when the ship docked.

infected with the plague. If the infected person cough he or she would blow the
bacteria into the air and you become infected through breathing in.
