Italian architect Luigi Prina made his first model aircraft at the age of 16. In his mid 60s, after a successful career in building design, he met painter and boat builder Eugenio Tomiolo who challenged him to make one of his model boats fly.

In the twenty years since, Prima has dedicated his retirement to creating delicate, fully functional flying models worthy of Leonardo DaVinci.
