Da Vinci code
« on: July 24, 2021, 10:53:23 PM »

Heard on NPR today that scientists have identified 14 currently living people with strong ties to Leonardo da Vinci by virtue of their DNA, all Italian.

They didn't name names, but wouldn't be surprised to find one Iacopo Simonelli on the list.

Very clever, JM.  I heard that same story.  Intriguing, isn’t it?
