Caterina was Leonardo’s mother. Shortly after Leonardo was born in 1452, she married a lime burner named Antonio di Piero del Vaccha da Vinci (nicknamed “Acchatabriga”), with whom she had five children. She cared for Leonardo in Anchiano, the village of his birth, until he was taken to live with his father’s parents at age 5. The picture to the left is Leonardo’s childhood home in Anchiano.
