Santa Croce Church Florence


Western civilization has been profoundly influenced by what happened in Italy.

Our laws, architecture, art, culture, and science including construction techniques, plumbing, and metallurgy come directly from the Romans 2,000 years ago and from the Italians during the Rennaisance in the 1500's and 1600's.

In this one church in Florence many famous people are buried including Michelangelo, Galileo, and Machiavelli.
