Leonardo Da Vinci. Lo psicotico figlio d’una schiava

The great Leonardo, who died in Amboise on 2 May 1519, was certainly a psychotic. He had severe traumas in his youth. His existence was a constant struggle to transcend his past, in which his mysterious mother appears. He was a narcissist with a split personality, who set himself unattainable goals that fuelled his dissatisfaction.



Angelo Paratico spent forty years in the Far East and is the author of several books on historical subjects and novels.
