'Painting Mona Lisa' is an intricately woven tale of betrayal, love and loss, providing explanations - both manifest and remarkable - behind the mysteries surrounding da Vinci's famous portrait.
April 26, 1478. Guiliano De Medici, brother of Lorenzo the Magnificent, the head of the powerful Florentine Medici family is assassinated.
Years later, Lisa Gherardini listens to the story of Giuliano's death, unaware of the significance it holds for her future. She is drawn into the Medici circle by her love of the arts and falls in love with Guiliano's son; but when they are forced apart, Lisa turns to the Medici's most luminescent friend: da Vinci. Against the turbulent backdrop of Savonarola's Florence the two become conspirators, friends, lovers and eventually each other's saviours in this parallel love story of infinite twists.
