Medici Archive Project

Host Bob Edwards talks to Edward Goldberg, Director of the Medici Archive Project, about his work with the Medici family archive in Florence, Italy. The archive is a collection of virtually every letter sent or received by the Medici court during its rule from the mid-1500s to the mid-1700s. The correspondence reveals a great deal about Italian art and early modern European history. Goldberg and his colleagues are documenting and digitizing each letter, and hope to have the project complete by 2012. (6:28) For more on the project, check out our Medici Archive Web page.
