Why might a historian refer to 15th century Florence as the "nucleus" of the Renaissance?

Florence in the 15th century was an exciting place to be. The population hadn't been affected greatly by the pledge so the population was 60,000. It was a self-governered city-state. There were many wealthy and talented people whom walked the street of FLorence. The trade was thriving; it was a perfect place for The Renaissance to take place in. The "new birth" only helped Florence in many aspects. Humanism also emerged and these new ideas flourished. Humanists emerged from the streets, the love for studying started to become to blossom. Artists painted and sculpted to create more real looking portraits. Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raffaello, and many more are now remembered as the great humanists because not only did they created unbelievable painting, but they were geniuses in many other subjects. Leonardo was considered generally as a writer, mathematician, inventor and artist.
