Leonardo is one of the most fascinating and enigmatic characters in history – a man whose genius and work is globally known and yet whose true character remains a tantalizing secret.
The high-end show is produced by Lux Vide, with RAI Fiction and Big Light Productions, in association with France Télévisions and RTVE.
Leonardo, starring Aidan Turner (Poldark) as the Renaissance genius Leonardo da Vinci has wrapped its Italian shoot after becoming one of the first large-scale productions to resume production during the coronavirus crisis.
This is the first Italian production to receive the backing of pan-European co-production initiative The Alliance, created last year by the major European public service broadcasters, RAI, France Télévisions and ZDF.
The series is created by Frank Spotnitz (Medici) and Steve Thompson (Sherlock) and directed by Dan Percival (The Man in the High Castle) and Alexis Sweet (Don Matteo).
