Leonardo da Vinci was arguably the most creative person who ever lived. Exquisitely gifted in both arts and science, he practiced them as a "scientist of art and an artist of science". Five hundred years later, his anatomical drawings remain testimony to his unique way of engaging the world both artistically and scientifically.

There is an intriguing connection between Leonardo and Columbus, since Columbus got his paradigm-shifting ideas from Paolo dal Pozzo Toscanelli, a Florentine physician and polymath, whom Leonardo knew and deeply admired. This makes it even more appropriate to celebrate these two great Italians on Columbus Day.
