Ingeborg Walter is a congenial cultural ambassador fluent in Italian and German. Her biography of Lorenzo de' Medici is a sumptuous portrait of the man and his times. Art and culture is her forte (and covers about half the book, essentially Lorenzo's youth), but the political history is also aptly presented. I wish she had elaborated more on the economic decline of the Medici businesses. Lorenzo's stato was the flower and the ruin of his family's control over Florence. Could better management and less diplomatic interventions and grandstanding have preserved it? Or was Italian commerce doomed, to be supplanted by Dutch merchants? Recommended reading. ( )
