Birthplace of Leonardo

In a site full of sadness stands the presumed birthplace of the artist. Some 15C elements have been preserved (the chimney, the stone sink and the family shield in the main room). But it is the countryside of olive groves with silvery leaves, the opalescent light, the terraced fields on the hills which all make a picture with a harmony of which Leonardo would be proud.
