Landscapes painted by a brilliant genius: Leonardo da Vinci
A unique journey to unveil the real identity of Gioconda and admire the amazing Landscapes which inspired Leonardo Da Vinci; His genius will then lead us to Urbino for more, incredible discoveries.
The most famous and enigmatic painting in the history of Italia art, i.e. La Gioconda by Leonardo da Vinci, is now a little less mysterious.
After a meticulous scientific research two experts, Olivia Nesci and Rosetta Borchia, have identified the Landscape on the background of this Louvre painting: through a complex elaboration Leonardo painted a view of a large portion of territory, then compressed it.
The landscape can be seen from two spectacular observation points in Alta Valmarecchia, which are located in Rimini (Emilia-Romagna region) and Montecopiolo (Marche region).
