The ninth title in this successful series. A factually accurate but hilarious look at the life of Leonardo Da Vinci as he mixes with the colourful set in Renaissance Italy! From his passion for horses, to his painting of the Mona Lisa - all is revealed. Leonardo da Vinci's life from 1470 to 1519 as seen through the eyes of one, Luigi Cannelloni, Leonardo's trusty assistant.
