Leonardo da Vinci was an artist, a scientist, and an inventor during the Italian Renaissance. Until this day, Da Vinci is considered one of the most talented and intelligent people in all of history. Did you know that the term “Renaissance Man” (one who does many things well) was coined from Leonardo’s many talents? I didn’t know that myself. You won’t want to miss this study and the fun facts about Da Vinci.
