Leonardo da Vinci is widely regarded as the epitome of the Renaissance Man. He is universally known for his paintings of the ​​​​​Last Supper and the Mona Lisa, inventions of flying machines and armored tanks, architectural and civic development plans, anatomical research and drawings, and studies of the natural sciences. Yet one aspect of Leonardo’s oeuvre that is often overlooked is his theatrical work. As a festaiuolo, or master of festivities, Leonardo developed, organized, and directed productions for festival pageants, triumphal processions, masques, jousting tourneys, and plays, for which he choreographed performances, engineered and decorated stage sets and props, and even designed costumes.
