City map, Imola, Italy, by the Italian artist and scientist Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). Leonardo arrived in Imola in September 1502 to survey the city for Cesare Borgia who had conquered the city in 1499. The city streets and castle are enclosed by fortified walls. Gates lead out to roads, with the rest of the circular map showing the surrounds and the Senterno River (upper right). Borgia, the illegitimate son of Pope Alexander VI, fought a campaign of conquest to re-establish control over the Italian cities in the Papal State. He employed Leonardo as architect and engineer. Leonardo left Imola in December 1502. Borgia was forced to give up his conquests when his father died in 1503.
