Transcript of 4.09 Project - World History

Granada Wittenberg Rome Florence Florence is considered the birthplace of the Renaissance. The Renaissance period was in part due to the efforts of the de Medici family, as they greatly encouraged and supported the arts. In fact, the famed Leonardo da Vinci spent the majority of his younger life and artistic training there. Leonardo da Vinci would become one of the most famous artists in history with his works like The Last Supper and Mona Lisa. Granada played a very important role in the Age of Exploration. Because Spain was so wrapped up in the Reconquista (wars to reconquer territories that had been lost to Muslim expansion), it was not totally bought on the idea of funding Christopher Columbus' expedition. However, after the city of Granada was retaken and the Reconquista was complete, King Ferdinand and Queen Elizabeth decided to take a chance and fund Columbus' voyage. If the city of Granada had not been retaken, Columbus' voyage may not have been funded and the Americas may not have been discovered for a long time. One must-see place in Granada is the Royal Chapel. It combines Gothic design, as well as Architectural designs from the Renaissance Period.
Another must-see place is Alhambra. This is a beautiful and ornate palace with Islamic-influenced architecture.
While we are at Alhambra, We should also see the Generalife; a very beautiful garden attached to Alhambra. Wittenberg was very important to the Reformation. It was here that Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to a church. This act was considered the formal beginning to the Reformation. One place we must see in Wittenberg is All Saints' Church. This church is considered to be the church where Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door. Another place we should visit is the Lutherhaus. This was the home of Martin Luther for the majority of his adult life. It is now a museum and part of a University. We should also see the Luther Memorial in the market square. One place that is a must see in Florence is Santa Maria del Fiore. This beautiful cathedral was built by the renowned Renaissance architect Brunelleschi.
Another place we should visit is the Palazzio Vecchio; the Florence town hall and art museum.
Finally, we should visit the Piazza della Signoria. This plazza contains many famous scuptures including Michelangelo's sculpture of David. 4.09 Module Project World History Adriana Patrick 2/28/13 London London was important in both the Renaissance and the Reformation. William Shakespeare, a very famous Renaissance writer lived and wrote in London. He was the one to write the famed Romeo and Juliet.
When visiting London, you should definitely see the Big Ben tower and Palace of Westminster.
I would also highly recommend that you enjoy the incredible views of the London Eye, a very large Ferris wheel right on the Thames River in London.
You should also visit the Natural History Museum. The building itself is a beautiful work of art. Rome was important in both the Renaissance and the Reformation. Rome was just under Florence in its contributions to the Renaissance Period. Rome also contributed a lot to architecture such as the dome and arch, and this style became known and Romanesque.
The Pantheon is famous for being so well preserved. It was rebuilt in 126 A.D. making the building nearly 2,000 years old!
Another must-see in Rome is the Piazza del Campidoglio. This was made by Michelangelo, a famous Renaissance artist.
Last but certainly not least we should visit the Trevi Fountain. This beautiful fountian is one of the most famous in the world.
