Da Vinci and his artist friends decided to philosophize about the period between the 19th and our current 21st centuries and discussed what happened in the mid 14th century and the end of the 16th century, thus creating a certain parallel.

After all, in the Renaissance the transformations were quite evident in culture, society, economy, politics, gastronomy and religion. Our current Renaissance is characterized by the transition to a digital world signifying an evolution in relation to the structures of the contemporary before the influence of the virtual world, the term is more commonly employed to describe its effects in the arts, philosophy and sciences.
