Secret about Leonardo da Vinci's mother revealed: the truth in a deed found in Florence
The scholar Carlo Vecce found an original document within the Florence Archives through which it may be possible to rewrite the story of Catherine, mother of Leonardo da Vinci. According to the document found, the mother of Leonardo da Vinci would have been a young woman originally from ancient Circassia, a region of the Caucasus, who came to Florence as a slave and was later freed by a deed written by the notary Piero da Vinci, father of Leonardo, on November 2, 1452. The discovery, and the story that was uncovered, was revealed by Carlo Vecce himself, who from that document prompted both his research and the publication of a book. The hypothesis that Leonardo's mother was a slave had long been known but no document had ever confirmed it.
