about

In 1506, Andrea, a Florentine student travels in Alsace, Bruges and Paris.  He admires wonderful sites and masterpieces, becomes  fan of polyphonic music and observes the rapid development of the printing industry. In Saint-Dié-des-Vosges, he meets the initiators of a map where a new continent is given a name : ‘America’ !

 In this turning point of the Renaissance movement, the Imperial cities in Alsace are experiencing a period of properity thanks to their mutual solidarity and the dynamism of their corporations. Andrea discovers the Latin School of Sélestat and appreciates its humanist education. However, his itinary is full of obstacles and he will forge his own experience based on the concept of freedom but also responsibility. 500 years later, the Internet opens new horizons but does it facilitate a ‘renaissance’ of humanism ?
