Florence was known as the nucleus of the Renaissance due do the fact that it was a major trade route because of it's geographic location. They also manufactured woolen cloth. The Medici family was also a major contributor They were a banking family and based in Florence and huge patrons of the arts so they alone helped to  fund a lot of the artistic culture there.  Florence was home to a lot of artists, philosopher and sculptors of the renaissance.

To go more into details, Florence was the main city in which the Renaissance flourished for many reasons. First, the city contained an incredible amount of talented artists, architect, poets and scientist. All of these people made the arts and the things in the city so remarkable, and they reminded the people the success that the city had. In Florence the trading was amazing, everybody went there to trade all sorts of things such as paintings. There were people called merchants, they were the ones that spent a lot on money in buying paintings, they were very generous. Florence had an amazing economy and the population was really big compared to other cities at that time. Good topic glooo Very Happy
