Rome [ENA] The town of Amboise, with the French and Italian presidents, recently kicked off the celebrations marking the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci's death . In fact, the Florentine master who personified the Italian Renaissance was the guest of France's King Francis I for the final three years of his life before his death in Amboise in 1519. In this year of Leonardo’s celebrations, the Dutch international academic

publisher, Brill, established in 1683 in Leiden, Netherlands, is going to publish on 27 June 2019 the second volume of Leonardo Studies. The volume hosts a dual theme of nature and architecture, offering a wide-ranging overview of current Leonardo scholarship on these two abundant subjects. The most innovative aspect of Leonardo's contribution to technology was his analysis of the understanding the physical properties of nature which must precede individual projects of painting or designing buildings. The volume begins with the Trattato, and follows with physics, geology, painting that imitates architectural structure and vice-versa.

The volume continues with architectural projects, questions of attribution, urban planning, and the dissemination of Leonardo’s writings in the Trattato and its historiography. The tome contains a remarkable group of articles and represents not only new research, but also a starting point for future studies on these topics. The coordinators of the volume are Constance Moffatt, Ph.D. (1992), UCLA. Professor Emeritus of Art History, Los Angeles Pierce College. And Sara Taglialagamba, Ph.D. (2010), Siena University, is Co-Director of the Rossana & Carlo Pedretti Foundation and a Post PhD at EPHE at Sorbonne (Paris). Contributors are: Janis Bell, Andrea Bernardoni, Marco Carpiceci, Paolo Cavagnero, Fabio Colonnese, Kay Etheridge,
