Two Italian Anniversaries

How very odd. Within a few days of each other, we celebrate(?) the anniversaries of Galileo’s heresy conviction (April 12 or 13?, 1633) and Leonardo da Vinci’s birthday (April 15, 1452). April is a strange month for science.

And now I’m stuck with an Indigo Girls song in my head. “Galileo’s head was on the block the crime was looking up the truth…”

Are there any clever songs about Leonardo Da Vinci? I feel like there are, but I’m not thinking of them right now.
