I liked reading this book It was about Leonardo Da Vinci and his relationship with Niccolo Machiavelli I didnt know that Leonardo Da Vinci and Niccolo Machiavelli had a relationship and I only knew about Leonardo Da Vinci Leonardo was a famous artist and sculptor and I found out that Machiavelli was an ambassador in Florence Leonardo and Machiavelli both lived in Florence Italy in the early 1500s There was a problem in Florence Italy in the early 1500s The Arno River the main export source of Florence wasnt connected to the sea and that made the trading with other countries and areas more difficult It was Leonardos and Machiavellis dream to connect the Arno river by a series of canals that would make the Arno river connect with the Ocean At first it seemed like a great idea and from two of the best minds it seemed like it could be accomplished They set out to have it built and realized that they were going about it all wrong At first the first canal was made for military Its purpose was to cut off water supply from Pisa rather than connect the Arno river to the Ocean The city of Florence did a poor job of hiring too few workmen and there was not enough work done Where the work was done it was not done properly enough and the ditches of the canals were really too shallow and when the river flooded it washed away all of the work done by the too few workmen When all of the work of these years was washed away the government of Florence and the workers decided just to abandon the work being done To leave it all behind There were many other failed attempts by the genius Leonardo and then he decided that he would be able to get the most work done by getting other Italian provinces
