da Vinci Dialogue Evening Lecture

Da Vinci’s achievements are still acclaimed by the world, but what was Leonardo’s world like? Join Dr. Franchina as she discusses the context of time and place within which he worked and the way in which he is viewed today in Italy.

Dr. Miriam Franchina specializes in historical and archival research. She has been a teacher, journalist, and translator and speaks five languages. She earned her B.A. and M.A. in History from the University of Milan, Italy (where daVinci spent much of his time) and her Ph.D. in History from the University of Halle, Germany.
