Fondazione Nuto Revelli
September 05, 2020
The largest permanent exhibition in the world dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci engineer and humanist. A spectacular setting accompanies you on a journey that, starting from the Florence of the fifteenth century, traces the training of Da Vinci and the influence of Tuscan engineers up to his stay in the Milan of the Sforza. A journey through the art of war, work and production, flight, waterways and architecture that ends with a perspective on Da Vinci’s influence on Lombard Renaissance painting and an immersive installation dedicated to drawings of the last period of Da Vinci’s activity. The figure of Da Vinci is investigated within its historical context by relating his work as an engineer and humanist to the history of science, art, technique and Renaissance thought. The vision is consistent with the most recent studies on Da Vinci’s historiography, placing the accent on his curiosity and his ability to observe and interpret nature together with the attention to the work of his contemporaries, with whom he is in constant dialogue.
