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

Leonardo lived in Milan for 26 years. 

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

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.

I will also show you hidden treasures of Milan's Castle and secret passages that 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.

Isa is very knowledgeable and prepared. I’ve been to Milan, including the castle, several times over the last 30 years, but she was able to bring to vivid life Leonardo’s story and works in a way no amount of timelines, facts, and even books could. The only shame was that we couldn’t spend more time with her. Grazie mille!

It was a great tour filled with interesting anecdotes about Da Vinci and his time in Milan. Isa is well versed with the topics relating to Da Vinci and explained patiently our doubts and questions. Will definitely recommend this walking tour. Looking forward to attending the other tours Lisa conducts, the next time I'm in Milan.
