This one’s called Leonardo in riva all’Adda.
Here’s the blurb that would be on the back cover, if it had one (it’s an e-book!)
“Everyone knows that Leonardo is a genius, and one who’ll turn his hand to just about anything, from diplomacy to organising a royal wedding celebration.
But you know the trouble with geniuses? They’re easily distracted!
If we entrust him with something important – like creating the biggest horse the world has ever seen – we’re going to have to keep a close eye on him…”
Join Leonardo, who’s just arrived at the court of Ludovico il Moro, Duke of Milan, bearing a gift from his patrons in Florence. As yet, he has no idea he’ll be Lombardy for longer than just a brief visit…
Leonardo in riva all’Adda is by Enrico Maso and we at onlineitalianclub.com HQ reckon the level is around B2 (upper-intermediate), so quite challenging.
