Medici Family

Medici is a family who always has a lot of power because they always do something to get the power.They started being the most power family in Italy.The family clawed their way to the top, sometimes through bribery, corruption and violence.The people who stood in their way could end up humiliated or dead.They created a lucrative partnership with the Catholic Church.The Medici family was connected with the Papal so it gave them immense power,then everyone wanted an account with the Pope's.They were important because they had a lot of money so they could do anything they wanted.They lived a big house or a castle because they had a lot of money and they work on their jobs.I think that they did had a good impact in the society because when they got in something everyone wanted to get in that also.
