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!!

Tour description

Did you know that Leonardo lived in Milan for almost 26 years?

In this tour we will explore Leonardo's work in Milan's Castle and his relationship with the Sforza Family and its court.


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


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


I will also show you hidden treasures of the castle such as secret passages that is possible Leonardo was involved in projecting. 


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


PROGRAM

- Meeting and intro about Leonardo in Milan

- Walk through the Castle and its surroundings listening to real stories and legends about Leonardo, discovering its secrets and his amazing adventures!
