The founding of the city of Florence dates from the Roman period. In the 3rd century, the area began to Christianize.

The 11th century found Italy at the center of a conflict called the “Investiture Quarrel” which pitted the Spiritual Head of Christianity, temporal sovereign of the State whose capital was Rome, and the inheritor of the Western Empire.

The city’s economic heights were marked by the creation of the Gold Florin coin, which became one of the most sought after money in Europe.The effigy of St. John the Baptist, patron saint of Florence, was stamped on the coin.

The works of Dante Aligheri, Boccacio and Giotto are intimately linked to Florence’s cultural abundance.
In the Quattrocento (the 1400s, or the 15th century), Florence experienced a cultural golden age, with artists like Donatello, Boticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Masaccio.
