What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
April 26, 1478. The Palazzo Medici. A knock on the door. Francesco Pazzi and Bernardo Bandini stood outside, hoping to convince Giuliano de Piero de' Medici to come to Sunday Mass at the Duomo despite his ill health. Giuliano and his brother Lorenzo accompanied Pazzi and Bandini to the Duomo, but at the height of the service, disaster struck. Pazzi and Bandini fell upon the Medici brothers with knives, hoping to end the leadership of the Medici family in Florence. Giuliano was killed, but his brother escaped. The Pazzi Conspiracy failed, not hurting the Medici family as hoped, but strengthening their grip on the city instead.
