Is it possible to start another Renaissance?

The original Renaissance began in Southern Italy and proceeded to spread through most of Europe. The Medici family had a large part to do with this by commissioning paintings and allowing creativity to flow.

Is it possible with enough money and to start another age in which the outpouring of creativity was so great that it's works are looked to as the pinnacle of achievement? Or am I just being naive?
