The Artist, the Philosopher, and the Warrior

Leonardo da Vinci, Niccolo Machiavelli and Cesare Borgia could not have become more different, and they would meet only for a short time in 1502, but the events that transpired when they did would significantly alter each man’s perceptions-and the course of Western history.

In 1502, Italy was riven by conflict, with the city of Florence as the ultimate prize. Machiavelli, the consummate political manipulator, attempted to placate the savage Borgia by volunteering Leonardo to be Borgia’s chief military engineer. That autumn, the three men embarked together on a fateful journey through the mountains, remote villages, and hill towns of the Italian Romagna-the details of which were revealed in Machiavelli’s frequent dispatches and Leonardo’s meticulous notebooks.
