Chris Slade describes the son et lumiere presentation at the abbey of Bon Repos called "Le Pays de Conomor" in Brittany, which takes place during the first two weeks of August.
Wealthy collector Pierre-Antoine Labouchere donated several thousand manuscripts to the public library in Nantes in 1872. When a journalist came across a reference to a document in a biography of Leonardo da Vinci his search brought him to Nantes, and to the Labouchere collection, where he discovered a coded manuscript, written by Da Vinci and most probably in 15th century Italian.
The manuscript has yet to be deciphered, as it is coded in Da Vinci’s trademark right-to-left mirror writing.
This is not the first important discovery at the library from the same collection, as in 2008 a musical score by Mozart was found.
