Let’s meet Riccardo Magnani, an academic and passionate researcher who has spent many years studying Leonardo da Vinci’s (1442 - 1519) fascinating world, and the ancient school of thought which gave birth to the renaissance movement. His publication "This is not Leonardo da Vinci" reveals the story behind one of the greatest artists and geniuses in modern history. It’s a compelling piece of work, which reveals and educates us with real facts on who Leonardo was and what is left of his legacy. Riccardo Magnani is one of the leading Da Vinci researchers, and makes us reflect on the life of the tuscan artist, particularly looking at the events which brought the first Europeans to America.
