Today, April 15th 1452, a boy was born in Italy.
When this lad grew up, he was to become one of the most brilliant masters of the Renaissance.
He was a painter, mainly; but is also known for several remarkable inventions.
The word of today is Ingenious. And the man is Leonardo da Vinci.
Examples for the usage of the word:
- This fellow is ingenious, he fixed a problem I didn’t even know I had
- That is an ingenious model of the atom
- He sent me an ingenious reply for an email
