In 1964, the directors at the National Library of Spain in Madrid made a startling discovery. Owing to an error in the printed catalogue, two hitherto unknown notebooks belonging to a famous inventor were discovered. In Milan, a physicist discovers an interesting hypothesis about trees in the notebooks of the same inventor, and goes out to prove it in his 2018 paper. This week, we travel to Venice and discover the story of Leonardo Da Vinci’s lesser known exploits in Botany, and the unlikely story of the humble tree that built Venice. Tune in, and discover what do these notebooks and trees teach us about the way we travel.
