Da Vinci’s Demons, a series about the early years of the famous Renaissance Man is the first project announced under the multi-year production agreement Starz signed with BBC Worldwide Prods earlier this month [Deadline Hollywood]
What a fantastic idea !!!! Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was one of the most amazing polymath, painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist and writer ... so I guess that leaves Starz with tons of storylines ;-)
For those of you fascinated by Da Vinci and visiting Paris, you may want to clear a couple of days on their schedule to visit the beautoful city of Amboise, located south West of Paris, where the great Leonardo da Vinci spent the remaining years of his life.
Some of his inventions are still there and have not been removed. The house has lost some of its original parts, but it still stands today and has a beautiful overlook of the Loire River.
And if you are lucky enough to be able to visit Amboise you may want to stay at (one of the most amazing places Alek and I had the pleasure to stay at) Le Chateau Des Ormeaux. The Couperin room is our favorite :-) and the breakfast served on the gigantic common table is just fantastic. This place is also gay friendly (gay owned!). A must on your next visit to France!
