THE MYSTERY OF THE GIOCONDA

presentation by Prof Manescalchi
1st Floor 55 Exhibition Road, London SW7 2PN 
“Who was La Gioconda” has remained a mystery for more than 500 years and has finally been resolved through the brilliant researches carried out by Prof Roberto Manescalchi on a neglected period of Leonardo’s working life in Florence. In 1501 Leonardo spent the year in his studio in Florence. Here he attracted many Italian portrait painters who wished to learn from him the skill of his art. It was here that he created one of the greatest portraits in the world: The Monna Lisa (derived from Madonna).
 
On 2nd October Prof Manescalchi will be here to present his researches with a short video shown on Italian TV and share with us his conclusions. This will be translated simultaneously by Rosa Maria Letts who will also interpret the question and answer session to follow. Read more
