DA VINCI UNFULFILLED DREAM
The master's uncompleted architectural capstone
In his last years, Leonardo Da Vinci started to work on his ultimate masterpiece: the plans of an extravagant royal palace in Romorantin, a village that was meant to become the new capital of France. Preliminary work began but the building never got off the ground.
On the basis of Leonardo’s drawings, this film takes us to London, Milan and Romorantin. With the help of the best specialists it achieves the unthinkable: the CGI reconstitution of what should have been the ideal city as imagined from the great Italian genius.
