The Museo Nazionale della Scienza e Tecnologia “Leonardo da Vinci” organizes, from 19 July 2018 to 13 October 2019, the first national and international initiative carried out by the celebrations for the 5th centenary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci, which will take place in 2019: the “Leonardo da Vinci Parade”.
The exhibition, curated and realized by the Museum, stages a rich selection of spectacular models in the '50s interpreting Leonardo's drawings and frescoes of 16th century Lombard painters. Next to the machines are the models of military and civil architectures in plaster and terracotta, restored in recent years and not visible for some time.
The Museum thus returns to its origins, showing in an evocative way the two collections with which it opened to the public on 15 February 1953.
A unique opportunity to admire an unusual combination of art and science in a journey that crosses the different fields of interest and study of Leonardo, enhancing the historical collection of the Museum, the most important in the world.
