Leonardo Da Vinci

Leonardo Da Vinci was born in 1452 in Tuscany and died in 1519 in France, 600 years ago this year. In 1516, François Ier invited him in France to live at the Clos-Lucé, a manor house near the royal Château d’Amboise. There, Leonardo Da Vinci worked until his death in 1519 on a gigantic collection of paintings, theoretic writings and drawings, intertwining scientific research, mechanics and fine arts.
