Season 1  |  Episode 1  |  SBS  |  October 19, 2018

The Medici family suffers a great loss with the death of its patriarch Giovanni. When the designated heir Cosimo discovers that his father was poisoned, he decides to keep the news to himself and to put Marco Bello, his right-hand man, on the assassin's trail. Cosimo, who has long abandoned his dream of becoming an artist, then takes his father's place as head of the bank and of the Signoria, where he needs to defend himself against the hostility of the noble families, headed by Rinaldo Degli Albizzi. When the Duke of Milan annexes the city of Lucca away from Florentine dominion, Cosimo must decide whether to side with the nobility, as Giovanni would have done, or to free himself from his father's shadow.
