Florence is the capital of Tuscany and has been a cultural centre since the early Middle Ages. From the Middle Ages to the Renaissance, a huge proportion of the western world’s most prominent artists, scientists and architects were born or trained in Florence, which in those days was a financial and cultural centre admired and respected by the rest of Europe. Examples of internationally famous Florentines include Boccaccio, Dante, Giotto, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Botticelli and Brunelleschi.
