Brief about the movie:
“Io, Leonardo”
Director Jesus Garces Lambert with Luca Argentero, Angela Fontana, Massimo De Lorenzo, Francesco Pannofino

I Leonardo takes the viewer to the discovery of man, the painter, the scientist and the inventor, through a unique journey, engaging and fascinating in the mind of Leonardo, one of the most brilliant figures that human history has ever known, known to anyone for having painted "the most famous painting in the world", the Mona Lisa. And it will do so with a look very far from the stereotypes with which Leonardo is usually described.
