Leonardo da Vinci was born on 15 April 1452, in a farmhouse about 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) from the town, between Anchiano and Faltognano. This is not accepted by all since this property entered into the Da Vinci family well after Leonardo's birth. His full name was "Leonardo di Ser Piero da Vinci", which means "Leonardo, son of Piero, from Vinci". Half a million visitors a year come to visit the Museum of Leonardo and his birthplace. The Da Vinci was an old surname of Florentine notaries, if Leonardo would have been born in Rome, instead of Vinci, his surname would have been anyway Leonardo da Vinci.
