Power of the Past with Bill Moyers: Florence

1990 NR

Join journalist Bill Moyers for a guided tour of Florence, Italy, that focuses on the art and creativity of the Renaissance, and how key philosophical ideas from the period -- such as the importance of the individual within society -- live on today. Moyers examines some of the city's most important works of art, including several of Michelangelo's frescoes, and interviews such notable artists as filmmaker Franco Zeffirelli and author Umberto Eco.
