Leonardo da Vinci
Leonardo da Vinci was born on the fifteenth of April, 1452, near the
town of Vinci, not far from Florence. He was the son of a Florentine notary,
Piero da Vinci, and a young woman named Caterina. Leonardo spent most of his
life in Florence and Milan.
In 1469 he was apprenticed to Andrea Verrocchio, a leading Renaissance
master. Leonardo acquired a variety of skills while he remained at the workshop
until 1476. He left Florence for Milan in about 1482 to work for Duke Lodovico

applied his knowledge of mechanics to his obligations as a civil and military
engineer. He also took up study in anatomy, biology, mathematics, and physics.
