This documentary traces the fundamental historical steps that led the Medici ruler, Cosimo the First, to establish the recently restored Medici Fortress on the hill of San Donato in Arezzo, the ancient city founded by the Etruscans. It shows, in an epic and evocative manner, how this mighty Renaissance fortification was able to dominate the entire city, but eventually was buried and forgotten. This is an exploration of the origins and identity of the millennia-long history of the Tuscan city of Arezzo.
