Florence reached its highest development in the fourteenth century. Within its vastly increased population there developed a class who viewed the surrounding countryside as a large market for which the city provided the infrastructure: roads, bridges, market places, etc. Thus, this countryside came to be peopled with merchants, entrepreneurs and professionals who even during the great crisis of the mid-century demonstrated a kind of entrepreneurship and know-how equal to that of their urban counterparts.
