Sandro Filipepi, famous as the Botticelli, was the son of a tanner, and was one of the greatest artists of the '400 Florentine Renaissance. The father of the first news about him, when, in a statement in 1458 to the offices of the Land Registry, said to write:

"Sandro, my son, is thirteen, alloy and is not healthy," meaning to bind "the task of attacking the joys apprentice goldsmith (drawing and engraving) at a workshop.

The origin of his nickname, "Botticelli", or is in close correlation between Sandro and his brother John, said "Botticelli" (short, fat, colorful and full of wine), or with his brother Antonio as a craftsman who "beat" gold (from which battigello).

Before you start painting, she kept the family, went to learn how to "read" in a school, then, according to Vasari, he went to the shops of Fra 'Filippo Lippi and Verrocchio. Botticelli attended the refined atmosphere humanistic promoted by the Medici family, immortalized nature with far scenarios rich colors and flowers (eg. Primavera and Birth of Venus).

Now we want to tell a story on the enchanting Renaissance, often told to tourists visiting Florence. The Botticelli and Leonardo da Vinci, after their meeting in Verrocchio's workshop, have formed a good friendship and opened an inn called "Three frogs". Here guests could choose the dishes, or reading the menu written from right to left by the left hand of Leonardo, or indicating the images represented by Botticelli. The menu was very rich: ribollita all'arista, "cod", with fried frogs. Despite the inventiveness of Sandro and Leonardo, the inn did not last long and we had more news.
