LEONARDO DA VINCI'S BAG "PRETIOSA" FINALLY UNVEILED!

A handbag design based on a sketch by Leonardo da Vinci, dating to the end of the 15th century was finally unveiled today concurrently with the 9th edition of the Pitti Immagine in Florence, by  historic Florentine brand Gherardini .

The  "Pretiosa" embodies a philological and provocative idea conceived by Gherardini with the Leonardo Da Vinci Ideal Museum.
Unfortunately, it is unlikely that any of us will be able to ever own a  "Pretiosa" since  Gherardini will only be producing 99 which will be sold with a book on Leonardo da Vinci's renaissance art.  
Not all is lost however,  should you wish to at least have a peek at the  "Pretiosa" it  will be on show at the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno, Via Orsanmichele, 4, Florence until the 13th January.   Book your plane tickets now!
