Leonardo da Vinci was truly an inventor and someone way ahead of his time. He left some great masterpieces for the world to behold like the Mona Lisa and a treasure trove of ideas which he recorded in his notebooks. And though it has been 500 years since his death, a pair of impersonators keep his memory alive.
This is standard fare for artistic impersonators Valter Conti and his daughter Elena Pinori who masquerade as Italy’s majestic painter and his most famous subject. At least three days a week, Conti spends two hours dressing to look like a statue of the artist that stands outside the Uffizi Gallery.
