Giovanni Pico (1463 - 1494) was one of the most important man in his family and of the Italian Rinascimento.
His celebrity came from his great memory, but he also was an important philosopher and a humanist of big talent. After his studies in canonical law at the University of Bologna, Ferrara, Padova and Paris (Sorbonne), he went to live in Firenze, fulcrum of the Italian Rinascimento. In Firenze he met and became friend of the Prince "Lorenzo the Magnificent".
