The Pazzi conspiracy
Every generation of the Medici family undergoes a conspiracy but only the one organized by the Pazzi family with the support of the Pope Sisto IV kills a person. Why did conspiracy take place in the Cathedral of S. Maria del Fiore? The conspiracy failed and for this reason one of the most important celebrations held by the Pazzi was interrupted: the “Holy Fire”. Lorenzo’s enemies were killed by the Florentine Republic; only a few part was exiled. The dead body of one of them was drawn by Leonardo da Vinci.
