A brilliant, massive portrait of Leonardo da Vinci in five parts,
produced by Italian State Television and directed by acclaimed Italian
filmmaker Renato Castellani. The man who painted the Mona Lisa and the
Last Supper, one of the great geniuses of history, comes alive in an
exhaustive study of da Vinci and his period. Part I: 1452-1482, covers
the first 30 years of da Vinci's life, the circumstances of his birth
and childhood, as well as his influences. Part II: 1482-1500, covers
da Vinci leaving Florence for Milan to work for Duke Ludovico Sforza,
his scientific studies as well as The Last Supper. At age 50, Leonardo
returns to his home in Florence. Parts IV & V: 1500-1519. While in
Florence, Raphael is introduced to da Vinci, and Leonardo meets and
forms a bitter rivalry with Michelangelo. In 1506, he leaves again for
Milan. 4½ hours total. 3 cassettes in slipcase.
