Renaissance genius Leonardo da Vinci leaves the feuding, scheming and sexual intrigues of 15th century Florence behind as he sets off for the mysterious New World in the second season of TV's "Da Vinci's Demons" that begins on Saturday.Da Vinci, depicted as an old, bearded man in a widely accepted self-portrait, is a 25-year-old swashbuckling inventor and artist in the historical fantasy series that tells the "untold" story before he painted the "Mona Lisa" and the "Last Supper". In the first season, da Vinci allied himself with the ruling Medicis against Pope Sixtus IV and the Pazzi family as they conspired to take control of Florence. Little is known about the early life of da Vinci, the illegitimate son of a notary to the Medici family and a servant girl, giving Goyer creative license to inject a bit of magical realism into the show.
