Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo da Vinci Have you ever wondered about famous artists? Well, if you have I’m going to tell you about a man that was alive during the Renaissance (1307-1633). His name is Leonardo da Vinci. Leonardo da Vinci was born on April 15, 1452 in Tuscany, Italy. He died on May 2, 1519 inside his house in Amboise, France at the age of 67. People call him Leonardo “da Vinci” when it’s not his real name because “da” means “of” and Vinci is a place, so his name means Leonardo “of Vinci.”His parents were Caterina and Ser Piero da Vinci. He was a multi talented man who was a scientist, a sculptor, and an artist. He was and always will be a giant of Renaissance history.
