In the 14th century AD, many Italians declared that they were living in a new age. This is a new age of learning, reading, art, and culture. Many scholars have agreed that the Italian Renaissance means ‘rebirth’. The Italian renaissance was an enormous part of Italian history. This caused a big part in the art history as well. We have many sculptures and art forms based on this historical event. This was the rebirth of the human spirit. This was considered the ‘Golden Age’ of the Italians. This was a huge turning point for the people living here at the time. Many things were discovered during this time. Opera, which is the music the Italians love to listen to in theaters, was discovered at this time. Like I have said before, art was huge in a time like this. Many paintings, sculptures, and even the architecture was huge. In many places in Florence you can still see the architecture from that time.
