This is a continuation of the story of Lorenzo, who was a revolutionary, visionary, and also about the modernity of a man who knew how to use beauty as a powerful tool for communication. The story also tells how Lorenzo made an alliance with Ferdinand I (Duke of Mantua and Duke of Montferrat) from Naples after the failed Pazzi coup.
Medici: Masters of Florence season 3 episodes list:
A few months after the Pazzi Conspiracy, Lorenzo is still animated by a spirit of revenge. There is a distance clash (to the sound of excommunications) between Lorenzo and Pope Sixtus IV; the cruel count Riario (the last of the conspirators left alive) tries to take advantage of this conflict, trying to start the war between Florence and Rome. While the Medici family learns of the existence of Giulio, the illegitimate son of the late Giuliano, a Dominican friar arrives in Florence who seems capable of reading in Lorenzo's heart: Girolamo Savonarola.
The entry into the field of the Kingdom of Naples alongside the papal troops is likely to mark the end of Florence. Among the Priors there are those who doubt Lorenzo, but the Magnificent, determined not to let Florence fall into the hands of his enemies, finds a stratagem to de-authorize the Priors by replacing them with the Council of Ten, made up of men loyal to him. When Clarice, pregnant, is sent to the countryside with the children, the family suffers an attack by the men of Riario. Faced with the approach of the military threat to the city, Lorenzo decides to leave for Naples with his new adviser Bruno Bernardi, to try to break the encirclement and restore peace.
