Leonardo da Vinci and the Italian Renaissance:
Leonardo da Vinci was an artist, scientist, and inventor during the Italian Renaissance. He is considered by many to be one of the most talented and intelligent people of all time. Scholars have agreed that the Italian Renaissance (another word for “rebirth”) happened just that way: that between the 14th century and the 17th century, a new, modern way of thinking about the world and man’s place in it replaced an old, backward one. The Renaissance began in Tuscany in Central Italy and centered in the city of Florence. The Italian Renaissance has a reputation for its achievements in painting, architecture, sculpture, literature, music, philosophy, science, technology, and exploration.

Mona Lisa was a real Florentine woman, born and raised in Florence under the name of Lisa Gherardini.
