The second Renaissance

The second renaissance is the most awaited thing as of now and I am hoping it begins as soon as possible (asap in short). Renaissance was a cultural movement that spanned roughly the 14th to the 17th century, beginning in Italy in the late Middle Ages and later spreading to the rest of Europe.

Florence is the capital city of the Italian region of Tuscany, and of the province of Florence.
Florence is known as the “cradle of Renaissance” (la culla del Rinascimento) for its monuments, churches and buildings.

There was a surge in artistic, literary, and scientific activity in Florence from the 14th to 16th centuries. This was accompanied by significant economic growth and business activity. There was substantial private and public funding to sponsor artistic and scholarly endeavours.

There were crises in the Roman Catholic church (especially the controversy over the French Avignon Papacy and the Great Schism). There were catastrophic results from the Black Death and a some re-evaluation of medieval values.

The ages of today will be called as the rebirth of Dark Ages because of the growing negativity, fear, rise of crime and the exponential growth of a phenomena called as Terrorism. Dark Age or Dark Ages is a term in European historiography referring to the Middle Ages, or more specifically to the Early Middle Ages. Although the Dark Ages came after the period of Renaissance, today we need it desperately. We don’t know the motive and length of our lives and we hence there is a need for promotion of creativity, which we are already experiencing in the form of talent hunts, we need to give it a lot more thought. The way florence,sienna and rest of the states lived their life by promoting creativity after half of their population was wiped out due to plague, we need to divert our resources for creative expeditions before we end up in a similar way. The human wipe out could be because of a nuclear explosion , an unknown disease or a disease such as AIDS, Bird flu or something else. The biggest example of this growing creative expedition can be seen in the music world, but we need to give our culture a lot of upliftment. Politicians need to promote a lot of it, because it brings happiness. If more stress is paid on such matters rather than denigrating the opposition, they might just win the elections. Anyways, I just hope for the better.
