Twelve men were appointed, and given powers to act for the whole people of Florence. The first thing they did was to decree that whoever owed the commune anything should pay three florins interest on each florin lent.
The moon was in the first quarter that night.
Sunrise in Florence was at 6:01 AM and sunset was at 6:08 PM.
I would love to work with people who want to be a part of a digital humanities project mapping the daily life of the Italian Renaissance in detail. Do you have graphic design skills? Or are you a Neo4j/ASP.NET developer? Or just someone who loves the Renaissance like myself and would like to help build the knowledge base? Do get in touch!
