Description


What can the Renaissance teach us about life in the 21st century? Well, the gods of Mt. Olympus want to find out. Zeus resurrects four giants of the Renaissance: Leonardo DaVinci, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Niccol Machiavelli, and Lorenzo de Medici to examine the genesis and impact of the Renaissance. Unexpectedly reunited after 500 years, these four great men engage in an intellectual dialogue to study, analyze, and evaluate Renaissance history...but first, they must determine what the Renaissance was, and how they themselves contributed to it. Educational, engaging, and thought-provoking, this delightful short play is an excellent way to learn about the Renaissance, and to think about how the lessons of that amazing time can play a role in meeting the global challenges of the scientific and technological 21st century.
