The Mona Lisa Code, shot on location in Florence, shows how Leonardo, penniless and destitute after the fall of Milan, was compelled to paint the “Mona Lisa” in exchange for winning a fresco contract from the city of Florence. The film also reveals that he actually painted two Mona Lisa portraits, one of which emerged from a Swiss vault in 2012.

The Mona Lisa Code is written and directed by Jean-Pierre Isbouts, a bestselling National Geographic author and historian. This event will feature a screening of the film and a discussion with Dr. Isbouts.
