L’Intreccio Da Vinci
Between then and now, between the Renaissance and nowadays
Leonardo da Vinci and his genius continue to animate the pages of the new book written by Giampaolo Guida.
Leonardo again; his astonishing alchemical virtue, his pictorial work and the consequences in the history of his presence in Milan at the end of the fifteenth century interwine with new enigmas and mysteries in a development with a rapid pace.
Desire for knowledge and search for amazement facing of the highest art animate the characters who struggle with their natural enemies moved by cruel egoism and insane desire of possess.
The healing magic of the threads surrounding the Bianca Sforza’s long braid, the Lucrezia Borgia’s twisted bitterness, heirs of Medici family, collectors and critics of art … are just some of the figures who live in a bumpy and exciting narrative development, between the Renaissance past of Leonardo and the present of the
Professor Vallesi, predestined interlocutor who is responsible for the solution of seductive mysteries.
The Beautiful Princess, portrayed by Leonardo on vellum, with her gaze and her hairstyle that conceals a vital power, envelops the spirit of the narration; it is that girl who, despite her premature death, lives over the centuries renewing among humans questions that lead to the truth.
