Leonardo da Vinci. It was born on Saturday, the 15th of April, 1452. Leonardo, descends from a rich family of Italian nobles, he was an illegitimate child of his father Messer piero fruosino dí Antonio, a notary, chancellor and ambassador of florencia's republic, embarrassed caterina, a humble young woman of rural family. Of whom it is said that she could be a slave of average east. Leonardo dá vinci, was a Florentine polímata of the Italian renaissance. He was simultaneously a painter, anatomist, architect, artist, botanist, scientist, writer, sculptor, philosopher, engineer, inventor, musician, poet and town planner. It was born in Vinci on April 15, 1452 and died in Amboise on May 2, 1519, at the age of 67, accompanied of his public inspector Francesco Melzi, to whom he bequeathed his projects, designs and paintings. After spending his infancy in his natal city, Leonardo studied with the famous Florentine painter Andrea de Verrocchio. His first works of importance were created in Milan to the service of the duke Ludovico Sforza. It was employed later at Rome, Bologna and Venice, and happened last years of his life in France, for invitation of the king Francisco I. Frequently described as an archetype and symbol of the man of the Renaissance, universal genius, besides humanist philosopher whose infinite curiosity only can be comparable to his inventive capacity, Leonardo da Vinci is considered to be one of the biggest painters of all the times and, probably, she is the person with the major number of talents in multiple disciplines that it has never existed. As engineer and inventor, Leonardo developed ideas very advanced to his time, such as the helicopter, the car of combat, the submarine and the car. Very small of his projects they managed to be constructed (between them the machine to measure the elastic limit of a cable), since the majority they were not realizable during this epoch. As scientist, Leonardo dá Vinci made progress very much the knowledge in the areas of anatomy, the civil engineering, the optics and the hydrodynamics. His more famous historical association is the painting, being two of his more famous works, The Gioconda and The Last Dinner, copied and parodied in several occasions, as his drawing of the Man of Vitruvio, who would manage to be taken again in numerous derivative works. Nevertheless, only there are known approximately twenty of his works, owed principally to his constants (and sometimes disastrous) experiments with new technologies and to his chronic fickleness. This limited number of creations, together with his notebooks that contain drawings, scientific graphs and think about the nature of the painting, they constitute a legacy for the successive generations of artists, managing to be equalized only by Michael Ángel.
