Last Spring, Milan's historic Palazzo Reale played host to a landmark exhibition celebrating the genius of Leonardo Da Vinci. Drawing on the many masterpieces on display, this stunningly immersive HD documentary offers a fascinating guide to the artist's world and the treasures he left behind. Exhibition curator Pietro Marani is joined by some of the world's leading Leonardo experts to tell an amazing story revealing new insights into the great polymath as painter, sculptor, scientist, anatomist, botanist and architect. Its twelve sections explore such topics as the role of nature and science, comparison between the arts, reflection on the ancients, anatomy and mechanics, images of the divine and myths over the centuries (beginning with the Mona Lisa). New light is also shed on the mystery of Leonardo's life in Milan, where he spent eighteen years at the end of the fifteenth century.
