Naked Mona Lisas on display at Da Vinci, near Florence

The small town of Da Vinci is hosting a new and to some extent bizarre exhibition dedicated to one of the world’s most famous paintings: the Mona Lisa.
The bizarre element I am referring to is the centrepiece of the exhibition which this time will not be the famous Gioconda (that’s the name of the Painting in Italian) but a series of half-naked Mona Lisas depicted by other artists.

Some of these portrayals on view date back to 17th century.
This exhibition is at the Museo Ideale in the Tuscan town of Vinci, near Florence (where Leonardo was born in 1452) and can only be seen as a nouveau variation on the theme; a variation which for some will border on the risqué!
