Medici: The Magnificent

Season 1 - The Art of Revolution
Florence, 1469. An attempt on Piero de Medici's life forces his son Lorenzo to assume leadership of the family-run bank. Once in power, young Lorenzo resolves to do things differently. With his brother Giuliano and young artist Sandro Botticelli at his side, he abandons the cynical politics of the past to usher in a new era of creative and political revolution. This swiftly brings him into conflict with the head of Florence's other powerful banking family, Jacopo Pazzi, who will stop at nothing to defeat Lorenzo. Their clash gives rise to one of the most thrilling political intrigues in all of history, the infamous Pazzi conspiracy.

Season 2 - The Beauty and the Power
1478. Following the assassination of his beloved brother Giulio, Lorenzo de Medici and his family face the greatest threat yet, both to their power and the city of Florence. Count Riario, the last of Giulio's murderers, is pushing his uncle Pope Sixtus IV to march on the city and soon enlists the help of the dreaded tyrant, King Ferrante of Naples. With Florence surrounded and outnumbered, Lorenzo risks everything in order to not only preserve the Republic and all that the Medici have achieved, but to drive it on to ever greater heights. As Florence gives the world the genius of Da Vinci and Michelangelo, Lorenzo finds that the price of defeating the city's enemies and bringing peace to Europe is far higher than he'd ever imagined. He must burn down his own dream of a true republic, crushing dissent and becoming king of Florence in all but name. Slowly, it dawns on Lorenzo that in doing this he has put not only his family but his very soul at risk. And then from the ashes of his dream rises his greatest enemy of all, Girolamo Savonarola – a man of God, intent on erasing everything that the Medici have built.
