Italian actor Massimiliano Finazzer Flory will take his show "Being Leonardo Da Vinci: An Impossible Interview" to Almaty's Museum of Arts as part of the Year of Italian Culture in Kazakhstan. The initiative is supported by the Italian Embassy. Dressed in period costume, Finazzer Flory will present Da Vinci's life in an engaging performance in Renaissance Italian, expounding on some of his most legendary works such as the "Treatise on Painting".
For the show, the actor portrays Leonardo during an interview, answering 67 questions on his childhood, the highlights of his life, and on how to become a "bono pittore" (good painter). The interview will be conducted in Russian by young Kazakh actor Anton Mitnev. Finazzer Flory brings Da Vinci's soul to the stage, combining the genius’s two personae, that of an artist and of a scientist.
