Born 15 April 1452 – Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo da Vinci, the quintessential Renaissance man, was born on April 15, 1452, in Anchiano, a small village near Vinci in Italy. Though his artistic achievements are undeniable, with masterpieces like the enigmatic Mona Lisa and the hauntingly beautiful Last Supper securing his place in art history, da Vinci’s brilliance transcended the canvas. He was a sculptor of remarkable talent, his detailed studies of human anatomy informing both his artistic pursuits and his scientific inquiries.

Driven by an insatiable curiosity about the natural world, da Vinci wasn’t just an artist; he was an engineer, architect, and scientist. His notebooks, filled with thousands of pages of meticulously detailed sketches, observations, and theories, explored everything from birds’ flight patterns to the human body’s inner workings. While centuries ahead of their time and never built during his lifetime, many of his inventions laid the groundwork for future technological advancements. Sadly, this towering figure of the Renaissance passed away on May 2, 1519, at the Château du Clos Lucé in France. However, his legacy as a universal genius continues to inspire and influence thinkers and creators across all disciplines.
