From 13 March to 30 June, 2019, on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death, the Scuderie del Quirinale will present the figure of the Italian genius to the public, in his intense cultural relationships connected to engineering, technology, art and thought between the 15th and 16th Centuries.
From the Tuscan period, to the stay in Milan, until the late Roman period, the exhibition will retrace Leonardo’s work in the area of technology and science and will show the cultural connections with his contemporaries.
The sections of the exhibition will explore the great themes faced by Leonardo on the side of technical and humanistic thought at the center of the debate of Renaissance artists and technologists: the development of machines for large construction sites, the use of design and perspective as tools of knowledge and representation, the art of war between tradition and innovation, the dream of fantastic flying machines, the search for solutions in the fields of work and production, the reflection on the ideal city and the study of waterways, the rediscovery of the classical world and a consideration on how, over time, the myth of Leonardo was born and developed.
In addition, there will be meetings, conferences, workshops and guided tours.
From 13 March to 30 June, 2019
