A near masterpiece in its reconstruction of historical fact and approachable, touchable genius: "La minestra se fredda..." he scribbles in the margins of his work -
- the cook has called him repestedly because the "Soup is getting cold ..." He is just like us, and yet ...
Leonardo, with all the scope his name ellicits -- lives and breathes in these pages with glorious illustrations.
