I am over fifty years a builder-designer and a big fan of old architecture and everything beautiful (paintings and sculptures).
For a long time no book has caught up with me like your Oil + Marble. Probably the most her conclusion, the wonderful finale that everything lies in love.
Although I have already been to Italy, I have to visit Florence and then probably the Louvre to see everything important from your book with my own eyes! Thanks to Paul Sobol

Florentine discoverer Giovanni Verrazzano’s 1524 letter to King Francis I of France concerning his voyage along the East Coast of America from Florida to Nova Scotia is interesting when considering he may have been in Florence as a young man (late teens to early twenties) from 1500-1505. He may have seen the David erected in Florence and the Mona Lisa in France after Francis I purchased it around the time they planned his voyage. His descriptions of the people, geography and architecture observed during his 2 week visit to Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island suggests a man of culture with a great appreciation for mankind’s better achievements. The 500 year anniversary of the voyage is rapidly approaching with very little understanding of his time in Florence, so I am wondering if you ever uncovered any information about him during your 20 year period of research on Leonardo and Michelangelo.
I am very much enjoying your Novel approach to re-living the past in a facts-for-fun dramatic fashion. In 1499 a famous astrologer predicted that the Age of Pisces would begin on February 24, 1524, and with it would come a catastrophic flood. When the date came, many Europeans had prepared for it with great consternation and social upheaval (some panic and resulting death occurred). Verrazzano was in the mid-Atlantic on that date, and wrote that he endured the worst storm of his sailing career, but made it through due to the name of his ship: Dauphine (Dolphin). It is interesting that while the highly educated and sophisticated Europeans that he was sailing away from on that date were panicking over the end time prognostication, the “simple” Native Amercans that he was sailing towards were peacefully living their normal, everyday lives.
