Hi! I am Isa and I feel like I'm a "seeker" of wisdom, and what interests me most is doing things that really matter, so I love creating experiences that foster meaningful relationships. I am a PhD in Sociology and Specialization in Ecopsychology, and my current research is based on the Neoplatonic philosophy of the Renaissance and the works of art and architecture that this historical philosophical movement created. So I am really honored to invite you to my experiences that I believe are interesting and revealing, and most and foremost, to distill something useful for your own life. Looking forward to meeting you soon!!

I will show you unique stories, anecdotes, and curiosities of this Universal Man who worked as Engineer, Architect, Artist, Musician, Customer designer, Entertainer, Alchemist and Philosopher.


You will understand his intentions behind his works, revealing a Humanist Leonardo that many do not know about.

You will feel immersed in the Renaissance Milan where he lived and worked, and you will learn his philosophical view of life.
