Medicis Vase

Do you know that the name of this vase is "Medicis"? This family was a powerful and influential Florentine family from the 13th to 17th century in Italy. The family produced three popes (Leo X , Clement VII , and Leo XI), numerous rulers of Florence, and later members of the French royalty. The family also helped to spur the beginning of the Italian renaissance.
