Beauty, creativity, genius: the Renaissance Florence of Lorenzo de' Medici was a powerhouse of art and culture. Among countless shops and government buildings, there was endless beauty coexisting with the dark side of the city, made up of power struggles, plots, intrigues and brutal violence.

Let the beauty we love be what we do - Rumi
For the last 23 years, Peter Roberts has had the most unusual job in Australia. He is the only Australian Music Thanatologist. He plays the harp for people who are facing their last moments of life. Peter’s focus is on the dying process and he helps people to die in peace when often everyone wants them to stay.
With the spirit of the Persian poet “Rumi” running through his veins, Peter has one last task to do before he retires.
