  • Masters, Roger D.
    FORTUNE IS A RIVER: Leonardo Da Vinci and Niccolo Machiavelli's Magnificent Dream to Change the Course of Florentine History.

    New York: The Free Press, 1998. dj. Hardcover - The story of the mysterious friendship between Leonardo da Vinci and Niccolo Machiavelli that changed history and almost accomplished one of the most ambitious plans of the city-state of Florence (Leonardo's concept to build a system of canals that would make the Arno River navigable from Florence to the sea, a project begun in 1504.). Roger Masters, a distinguished historical scholar, reconstructs this project and its failure, fills in many details of the relationship between the two giants of the Renaissance, and raises tantalizing questions on how history might have taken a different course had the project succeeded. Masters's reconstruction is both fascinating and plausible. Illustrated. Extensive notes, sources, index. 278 pages. ISBN: 0-684-844524.
