Event Description 

La Primavera by Botticelli

Step into the world of the glittering Renaissance court of Lorenzo and Cosimo de Medici at our free Night in the Piazza event! 

During a sumptuous performance in the Chapel with a Florentine theme, watch as Dante anachronistically introduces the great men that populated the Renaissance: Leonardo, Michelangelo, Machiavelli, Savonarola and Galileo, with a special appearance by Martin Luther. Listen to Heinrich, organist of Lorenzo de Medici's court; see the three Graces dance right out of Botticelli's "Primavera"; and hear angelic music by Lorenzo's singers.

After the performance, join the procession with the Medici to a true Renaissance banquet in Dryden Hall, complete with a whole roast pig, vegetarian pasta, salad, cheese plate and fruit, focaccia and, for dessert, tiramisu!

Everyone is welcome!
