Da Vinci & the Code He Lived By - IFILM Exclusive: First 8 Minutes

Posted on: December 1, 2005 | Views: 923 | Comment

Born in obscurity, and illegitimate, in a tiny Italian village in 1452, young Leonardo da Vinci seemed destined for a life of peasantry. But early mastery of art and a personal code for success that he developed catapulted him to the highest levels of Italian society and ultimately made him one of the most important figures of the Renaissance and one of the world's truly immortal minds. A fierce intellect made Leonardo the master of whatever he set his mind to, and his ability to see far beyond the limits and violence of his time continues to feed his popularity to this day. Revisit the life, accomplishments, and vision of Leonardo da Vinci with The History Channel special presentation.
