A huge part of what makes Starz's "Da Vinci's Demons" so captivating is its setting: 15th-century Italy. 

Starz created a featurette for the show's upcoming DVD that sheds light on what it takes to build the show's intricate and large-scale sets titled "Constructing Da Vinci."

TheWrap has the exclusive first look at the featurette.

It includes show creator David S. Goyer, production designer Edward Thomas and the cast explaining how a former auto plant, among other locations, were transformed into the epic settings of Florence and Rome for "Demons."

"The benefits of shooting here is that we've got so much space, and there's nothing else like it for miles around," said star Tom Riley, "so we've managed to build a whole world."
