is it true that the Chinese sailed to Italy in 1434 for the first time and sparked the Renaissance?
I am reading a book now about how the Chinese came to Italy in 1434 and gave all kinds of knowledge about things that Europeans never knew of or had discovered and later they went onto copy these things of knowledge , ex. the things attributed to the guy who invented the idea of the helicopter, submarine, etc were all given to them via the Chinese in this trip. Also they say that the Chinese went to America first and gave knowledge about America to the Europeans?
HOW DID THE CHINESE GET TO ITALY? DID THEY COME VIA THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE OR DID THEY ACTUALLY GO UNDER SOUTH AMERICA AND ACROSS THE ATLANTIC?

Speaking with a big city American education, I highly, highly doubt this. Around the time frame you were talking about, famous explorers made trips TO China. And they didn’t just give up their valuable trade secrets. On top of this, the Chinese had no incentive to explore the Americas. We were trying to get to China. China was already sitting on the wealth. Plus, the Atlantic is about 1/4 as wide as the Pacific, making Chinese exploration much harder and much less rewarding.

First time I hear of that. It's quite possible. But, it's best to keep an open mind about the past, especially distant past, because it could be nothing like how it was thought to be.
And, of course there was contact between ancient civilisations around the world.
