mediciMedici: Masters Of Florence will receive its UK premiere on Netflix UK on Friday December 9th, when the complete first season will be available to stream

Medici: Masters Of Florence tells the story of the Medici family, headed by Giovanni de’ Medici, who founded a powerful bank he entrusted to his sons Cosimo and Lorenzo.
