2019: a year to celebrate Leonardo’s world

Leonardo da Vinci is know for his spectacular inventions, including a mechanical submarine, a time machine, a mechanical dragonfly, Milan’s flying machine… and many more: flying, hydraulic, military and musical machines; machines that could help people work and machines that could entertain them; printing presses, odometers, bow compasses, oil chandeliers, elevators, roasters, drills, chairs, benches and braziers.

“There may not be in the world an example of another genius so universal, so incapable of fulfillment, so full of yearning for the infinite, so naturally refined, so far ahead of his own century and the following centuries”, noted Hippolyte Taine in his “Voyage en Italie”. To get a closer look to this genius’s inventions, visit “Leonardo 3 – The world of Leonardo” in Milan (Piazza della Scala), which will be open until the end of 2019 to celebrate the 500th anniversary of this extraordinary figure’s death (on 2 May 2019).

Visitors will be invited to interact with the Tuscan artist and scientist’s contraptions through two hundred 3D interactive devices and working physical replicas, many of them built for the first time in history – it’s your chance to maneuver a special flying machine built from sheet 176r of the “Atlantic Code”, featuring a special junction that allows wings to move in every direction.

The exhibition also includes two VR stations dedicated to the reconstruction of the lost “Battle of Anghiari” and to a paddle boat visitors can try navigating, as well as a never-seen-before physical model of “Leonardo’s accordion”, a continuo positive organ that produces a warm and soft sound thanks to the air pushed through wooden pipes using bellows. This is the first time that someone has played this original instrument… so let the music of Leonardo’s brilliant mind begin!
