Leonardo Da Vinci
A Chinese Scholar Lost in Renaissance Italy

After several years of research, Angelo Paratico reached an astonishing yet very logical conviction: Leonardo Da Vinci was the son of a Chinese slave, named Caterina.

Leonardo Da Vinci: A Chinese Scholar Lost in Renaissance Italy is the story of this historical investigation, which step by step reveals the mystery of Leonardo’s life as if it were a modern thriller.
The discovery of new pieces of evidence in the state archives of Florence and the interpretation of ancient documents from around the world was a compelling process bringing to light what has been hidden from our eyes, in spite of the ten thousand pages of Leonardo’s notebooks in our possessions.

Leonardo Da Vinci: A Chinese Scholar Lost in Renaissance Italy will be on sale starting from 15 April 2015.
