POLITICAL CHANGE
Introduce to students that it was during this period that a Florentine statesman named Niccolo Machiavelli became an important diplomat and leader for the city. He drew on his political experience to write a number of books, his most famous being The Prince. In it, he offers a frank, and some say cynical, view of government.

The most notable musical genre to emerge was the madrigal.

Renaissance musicians also invented new instruments, including the harpsichord and the violin.
