Buonaccorso Pitti

Buonaccorso Pitti

Buonaccorso Pitti was a prominent Florentine merchant in the 14th century. His family was very prestigious and his father very involved in politics. He was a gambler and often made unsafe investments, though he always seemed to come out all right. He bought and sold horses, wine, wool, and clothing among other things. In 1422, he was elected the Standard Bearer of Justice, Florence's highest post.
