    I have no idea why you connected the Medici to an intoxicating drink that was not discovered when Lorenzo and his father were alive.

    Merchants, and rich merchant bankers / politicians like the Medici, provided the money that produced, bought and sold the luxury goods of the Renaissance. Lorenzo and his father (whose name I don't remember but you can  find by looking up Lorenzo) de facto ran the government of the republic of Florence, a city state that loved and thrived on luxury goods. Nothing austere about the Florentines until the friar Savonarola came to town and preached against "vanities". Lorenzo was also an enthusiastic poet (perhaps a good poet) and he liked having creative people around him: philosophers, poets, sculptures and their sculptors. Patrons like the Medici family were just what the humanists and the artists needed to provide them with jobs; good food, clothing and shelter; time to meet like minds and develop their skills; and influence and fame.

    Mescal was unknown in Europe at that time.

    Mescal is an intoxicating drink made in Mexico.

    What in the name of bloody poop is "the mescal world"?

    And it's "how DID they AFFECT," not "how DID they AFFECTED."
