Leonardo da Vinci: 500 Years of Genius
Inventor, artist, scientist, anatomist, engineer, architect, sculptor, philosopher.

You will see why the ultimate Renaissance man remains an inspiration for the ages!

Louvre by scientific engineer and photographer Pascal Cotte.

characters who bring a personal perspective to the story of Leonardo.
