The Day the Renaissance Was Saved: The Battle of Anghiari and da Vinci's Lost Masterpiece by Niccolo Capponi

In the tradition of big-picture histories like The Swerve, a riveting account of a battle that changed the course of history??"and a lost masterpiece by Leonardo da Vinci

When the armies of Florence, Venice, and the Papal States clashed with the forces of the Republic of Milan on June 29, 1440, the outcome would bring the Medicis to power and lead to the Renaissance.

Into this deeply researched and ground-breaking book on the little-known battle of Anghiari, Capponi weaves the story of a lost fresco that Leonardo da Vinci was commissioned to paint to commemorate the battle on the wall of the Palazzo Vecchio??"directly across from his rival, Michelangelo. Da Vinci abandoned the work and it was soon painted over. Now, hundreds of years later, the Italian researcher Maurizio Seracini has proved that da Vinci??s original art is still there, and he??s working to uncover it.

Niccolo Capponi??s The Day the Renaissance Was Saved combines a thrilling narrative of battle with the mystery of a famous painting gone missing, rolling military history, art history, and political history all into one, with a heavy does of the ever-fascinating Medicis??"who schemed, plotted, and funded the creation of masterpieces right alongside the author??s family.
