Da Vinci Detective

This is no ordinary art history programme, but a fascinating and contemporary scientific detective story using a combination of observational documentary and dramatic reconstruction. The film follows three stories from the case file of Dr Maurizio Seracini: it also paints an engaging portrait of Seracini himself – modern day Renaissance man, self-made art expert, and enemy of many traditionalist art historians.
