1470. Medici's family power has been consolidated over time. Lorenzo is called to take his father's place after an attempt on his life which reveals years of poor bank management from them. As new head of Medici's family he has to take care of his brother Giuliano and his sister Bianca. He marries Clarice Orsini, a noble woman from Rome, and his friendship with Botticelli gives life to Renaissance. His contrast with Pope Sixtus brings Florence to the most bloody moment of its History, the Pazzi conspiracy.
This is the second collaboration between actor Bradley James (Giuliano de Medici) and Sarah Parish (Lucrezia de Medici). They previously shared screen time in Merlin (2008-2012) in the episodes Beauty and the Beast Parts One and Two as Prince Arthur (James) and Lady Catrina (Parish) respectively. See more »
The second season of Medici, focused on Lorenzo The Magnificent, is really not comparable to the first one: less quality in any aspect, especially screenshot and actors.
I didn't like how the actors chosen performed their roles and the aderence to the history is very low; Lorenzo is described as a hero, much more pure and honest that how he really was. Also, the relation between him and Clarice Orsini was not so romantic, considering that he always loved Lucrezia Donati.
I was disappointed by this second season and I really hope next one will be better.
