According to the economist and biographer Robert Skidelsky, Leonardo’s parents were loving and attentive. They remained in the same house throughout their lives where the children were always welcome to return. They were a very mobile people, whose mounted archers had acquired a reputation of invincibility, and the Germanic tribes seemed unable to withstand them. Almost nothing is known about the childhood of Leonardo until he was fifteen years old, except that he probably spent part of his childhood in Venice.
At sixteen years old, Leonardo completed one final tour of Sherlock Holmes in early 1906 before leaving the play after more than two-and-a-half years. Six months into the second American tour, Leonardo was enrolled in the New York’s School of Visual Arts film program graduating in 2001. Leonardos’s work has an atmospheric, highly concentrated visual style.
Leonardo lives in New York city with his wife Jacqueline, who sometimes cooks Colombian food to make him feel closer to his homeland.
