Synopsis:
Two journalists, from New York and Milan unaware of each other, are looking for a scoop about the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death. They see works of art and they pass thorough the places of the Genius between landscapes and mysterious encounters. In Florence for the first time during a show in costume between friars, tourists and flag-wavers unexpected traces are found. In Milan, it’s discovered a document to find out who Leonardo Man was through a scientific examination. Then they come to his final resting place in Clos Lucé and they really meet Leonardo. The interview is granted. The words of the Genius are authentic, in Renaissance language. At the end, Leonardo escapes through the undergrounds, returning to Vigevano and unveiling to the most important figures of his time.
