10 Jan. Catherine Fletcher of Swansea University will discuss Rai Uno’s hugely successful new show I Medici (Medici: Masters of Florence) at the British School at Rome on Tuesday 10 January, from 18.00-19.30.
Fletcher will explore the show's depiction of the Medici family and the debate it has prompted about the relationship between historical fact and fiction.
She will also draw on her own experience of writing a biography of Alessandro de’ Medici (Il principe maledetto di Firenze/The Black Prince of Florence) to consider the challenges of presenting this complex past to contemporary audiences, as well as examing how social media interaction can change viewers’ experience of historical TV.
