In the midst of the controversy over Da Vinci latest painting, the “Salvator Mundi”, Christie’s commissioned “The Last Leonardo”, a short documentary that investigates the authenticity of the re-discovered masterpiece. Editing the film felt like writing a detective story, with the best international experts exploring the painting like detectives, looking for the small clues that would put an end to the dispute. More than anything, it was a great opportunity to delve into Leonardo’s life, work and style.
