Speakers Bureau signs Renaissance man Prince Lorenzo de’ Medici

Banker, philanthropist, designer is descendent of historic House of Medici

LAS VEGAS – Bruce Merrin’s Celebrity Speakers Bureau has reached an agreement to represent noted Italian artist, philanthropist, international investor, fashion expert, food historian and automotive designer Prince Lorenzo de’ Medici, a descendant of the historic House of Medici. De’ Medici, who speaks five languages, is available for speaking appearances worldwide, including corporate events and meetings, conventions, retreats, seminars, workshops and more.

As a member of the dynasty that underwrote the Renaissance, bankrolled Columbus’ expedition to the New World and invented our modern banking system, de’ Medici counts among his ancestors three Popes — Leo X, Clemente II and Pius IV — and two French queens — Mary and Catherine de’ Medici. He also is a renowned philanthropist whose charitable contributions and voluntary activities include nonprofit projects in Zimbabwe, AIDS awareness campaigns through the Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) and support for Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, a private, nonprofit institution with research programs focusing on cancer, neuroscience, plant biology, genomics and quantitative biology.

True to his roots, he also is working to revive the Medici banking tradition. In 2020, he partnered with financial leaders formerly at American Express and Germany’s online Fidor Bank to launch Medici Bank in the United States. This digital-only bank serves small and midsize international businesses in a tech- and crypto-friendly way and has been hailed as one of the most innovative banks on the planet.

De’ Medici loves nothing more than to inform, educate and entertain live and virtual audiences with his presentations on art, finance, food, fashion, architecture and more, all while pulling the curtain back on 700 years of family secrets. With his charming Italian accent and fun-loving demeanor, this larger-than-life trendsetter engages his attendees with legendary “insider info” they are unlikely to hear anywhere else.

Since 1973, Bruce Merrin’s Celebrity Speakers Bureau has provided corporate meeting and event planners with worldwide booking services for an elite clientele, ranging from Jackie Robinson and Muhammad Ali to every U.S. President beginning with Ronald Reagan.
