LEONARDO DA VINCI

Leonardo is one of the greatest examples of the union between humanism and science.

The original nucleus of this museum was our ample collection of models of his machines, which were reconstructed from his drawings. Ever since the Museum was founded in 1953, it has provided a fundamental starting point for exploring the complex relationship between humanity and machines.

LEONARDO AT THE MUSEUM

The Museum exhibits the most important collection of historic models, built examining and interpreting Leonardo Da Vinci’s drawings. 130 unique models, which were realized through the skills of important experts and model makers.

LEONARDO INTERNATIONAL

During the last few years the Museum has become increasingly involved in sharing its own heritage and its experience through several international projects. Travelling exhibitions, prestigious loans from its collection of historic models, workshops and conferences to make Leonardo da Vinci’s life and work known to as many countries and cultures as possible.
