The Medici Archive Project

Visit Website
Description The archive of the Medici Grand Dukes is one of the greatest yet least known Medici monuments. Establishe d by Grand Duke Cosimo I in 1569, it offers the most complete record of any princely regime in Renaissanc e and Baroque Europe. Since this Archive consists mostly of letters (nearly three million filling a full kilometer of shelf-spac e), it offers an incomparab le panorama of two-hundre d years of human history, as told in the words of the people most immediatel y involved. However, this unique documentar y resource has never been catalogued and indexed, nor microfilme d and accessed by electronic means. Only now, with The Medici Archive Project, is it fulfilling its potential to revolution ize our understand ing of the past.
