synopsis

A revelatory and iconoclastic look at 15th and 16th century Italian Renaissance art through the eyes of hip hop legend and art lover Fab 5 Freddy. Amidst rockstar artists such as Michelangelo and powerful patrons such as the Medicis Fab discovers groundbreaking images of a multi-racial and multi-ethnic society in artworks which have fallen through the cracks of art history and been neglected by art historians. Included in Fab 5 Freddy's revelations are the story and images of Alexandro de Medici, known as the Black Prince who ruled Florence from 1531-37.
