Synopsis: two journalists, from New York and Milan, unaware of each other, are looking for a scoop for the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death. They see works of art and pass thorough the places of the Genius between landscapes and mysterious encounters. In Florence, during a show in costume among friars, tourists and flag-wavers, unexpected traces surface. A document to find out who Leonardo the man was through a scientific examination is then discovered in Milan. The two journalists later arrive at his final resting place in Clos Lucé where they indeed meet Leonardo. The interview is granted. The words of the Genius are authentic, in Renaissance language. In the end, Leonardo escapes and returns to Vigevano, unveiling himself to the most important figures of his time.
