Most will describe Florence, Italy as the true starting place of the Renaissance period. Florence was home of the Medici family, which was a very wealthy family. Ancient Florence was divided into separate guilds. One guild included those who were businessmen, and the other was created for wealthy citizens, which the Medici family fell into.
Wittenberg was a very important region to the Reformation. In this city state, Martin Luther spoke against the Catholic Church. After he posted his 95 theses on the church door disputing the claim that punishment for sin could be purchased with money, the Pope excommunicated him. This act was considered the formal beginning to the Reformation.
Over the years, Rome has become a very influential city state of Italy. The city state was a center of learning and arts, which is why it was cherished by many. Rome also held a part in the counter Reformation because it was controlled by the pope, due to the fact the city was where the pope resided.
