Palazzo Medici-Riccardi, Florence, Italy. Located in the so-called Chapel of the Magi in the Medici castle, Benozzo Gozzoli’s The Procession of the Magi is a masterpiece of Renaissance art. Gozzoli was commissioned by Piero de Medici then head of the Medici family, the de facto rulers of Florence.

      Giuliano Medici, the younger brother of Lorenzo, was nursing a bad knee on Easter Day and had to be helped to the cathedral—by the very men who were plotting to kill him and his brother during mass.

He also uses it discreetly for political purposes in a manner which will be perfected by his son, Cosimo.
