The life of Leonardo da Vinci, inventor of science fiction-like devices, anatomist, engineer of fortifications and canals, theatrical designer, master-at-arms, court musician and inimitable painter. With an narrative power that is entirely Russian, Dimitri Mereskovsky has interwoven the destiny of the greatest genius of all time into the fifty years that spanned the late 15th and early 16th centuries: a historical period that marked the end of the Middle Ages and Humanism and the development of the Renaissance. The personalities who bring these pages to life – Savonarola, Cesare Borgia, Machiavelli, Ludovico il Moro, the beautiful and mysterious Mona Lisa del Giocondo – with their intrigues, loves and battles, exert a strange power over the reader and draw him into an atmosphere filled with mystery, art, paganism and Christian faith.
