What people are saying:

In Skaft Square at the main entrance of the Marino Palace, you can admire the Leonardo statue in the center. It was carved by Pietro Mani over a period of two years, and the entire base is made of granite. Donated by Queen Victoria II of Italy, King Emmanuel II in 1872. About Leonardo di Piero da Vinci, what we know best is of course his identity as an artist. Masterpieces such as "Mona Lisa" and "The Last Supper" are all made by him. After reading the legend about him, I know that besides being an outstanding artist, he is also a scientist, engineer and inventor. It is simply the incarnation of a genius with an almost divine aura. Leonardo worked in Milan for more than ten years. In addition to his most famous mural "The Last Supper", there are also achievements in the Sky Axis Hall of the Sforza Castle. People of future generations admire this monument and never think of his great literary achievements during his stay in Milan. The figures in the four corners of the sculpture are his four proud students. In the lower right corner of the front, his most famous student, chief disciple Marco d’OGGIONO (1470-1549). I copied several copies of "The Last Supper" from the teacher and are now kept in museums in Britain, Germany, Russia and other countries. In the lower left corner is Cesare Da Sesto. Observing carefully, there are also carved scenes of Da Vinci getting along with his disciples.
