Italy Buzz: Leonardo da Vinci's Home Opens to the Public

Cool bit of trivia: The "da Vinci" part of Leonardo da Vinci's name just means "of Vinci" (really, it wasn't his last name at all, any more than Joan's was "of Arc"), and the town of Vinci in Tuscany has a new way to celebrate their most famous citizen. 

On June 23, Leonardo's historic home in Anchiano (just outside of Vinci) will open to the public. According to Visit Tuscany, the house has recently emerged from a restoration project sponsored by the Department of Architecture of the University of Florence. Best of all, to celebrate the restoration, entrance to the home will be free of charge on the first two days of opening (June 23 – 24).
