On view at the Museo delle Cappelle Medicee, Florence, an exhibition celebrating the first Medici pope, Leo X, on the 500th anniversary of his election. The show explores his pre-papal life as Giovanni di Lorenzo il Magnifico de’Medici, from his birth in Florence in 1475 up to 11 March 1513 when he was elected to the papacy, to his brief triumphal  return home in 1515, and death in Rome in 1521. On view until 6 October 2013.
