In fact, it was founded by the (in)famous Julius Caesar in 59 BC who the settlement Florentia (flourishing), a calm refuge for retired military veterans.

The banking history of Florence is not as romantic but incredibly crucial. Florentine banks had their fingers in places all over Europe. The powerful Medici banking family was the mastermind behind it all! In fact, its the economic flourishment that built a path for art, creativity, and innovation.
