The great genius was born on April 15, 1452. He was the illegitimate son of a respected Florentine notary public and he was raised by his father and stepmother on the family estate in nearby Vinci. He lived with his uncle and grandparents in Vinci until he was 14 years old. Then he moved to Florence
for his apprenticeship in the workshop of Andrea del Verrocchio.
- At Palazzo Strozzi, until July 14, an exhibition will combine masterpieces by Andrea del Verrocchio and other great masters of the fifteenth century with works by Leonardo da Vinci.

- In Vinci, visitors will be able to see Leonardo's first documented work, considered by many to be the first European landscape. The work can only be exhibited for short periods of time and will therefore be visible for only 5 weeks from April 15, the anniversary of Leonardo's birth.
