Machiavelli Paper Assignment
This map of Renaissance Italy reflects one of the concerns that prompted Machiavelli to write his book and dedicate it to Lorenzo II de’ Medici (1492-1519). Machiavelli’s intent was to provide a blueprint to unify Italy so that Italy might once again be great as it was during the Roman Empire and be a rival to the other great powers in Europe at that time. By the early sixteenth century both France and Spain had gone through the long-drawn out struggle to create unified countries (better to call them kingdoms rather than countries or states) and had emerged as the powers in Europe.Photo credit.
