Leonardo’s Self-Portrait
Few know that underground, in the centre of Torino... there is a treasure!

It is none other than the very famous Self-portrait in sanguine - made with hematite - by Leonardo da Vinci. Why in Torino? Simply because it is kept here, in an air-conditioned caveau of the Royal Library: the precious treasure, which was created in 1515, after several events, was finally purchased in 1839 by Charles Albert of Savoy.
