Events not to be missed and itineraries dedicated to Leonardo

LEONARDO. LA MACCHINA DELL’IMMAGINAZIONE

A multimedia exhibition in Palazzo Reale, produced along with the Municipality of Milan. The exhibition integrates diverse languages and skills, including video, graphic animation and interactive systems, to mount an intriguing, complex project.
The exhibition itinerary proceeds through a series of seven video installations, five of which are interactive. The installations envelop the viewer in a world of images and sounds based on Leonardo’s multifaceted legacy, through which the genius “speaks” of his time and of our own.
Each of the spectacular machines, freely inspired by Leonardo’s drawings, corresponds to one of the exhibition sections: Observations on Nature, The City, The Landscape, Peace Machines, War Machines, Anatomy Table, and Painting.

LEONARDO DA VINCI PARADE

The temporary exhibition “Leonardo Da Vinci Parade” – curated and developed by the Museum – comprises a large selection of fascinating models built in the 1950s through the interpretation of Leonardesque drawings and frescoes by sixteenth century Lombard artists, granted for storage in 1952 by the Pinacoteca di Brera, directed at the time by Fernanda Wittgens. The Museum celebrates its origins by evocatively exhibiting the two collections with which it opened to the public on February 15th, 1953. Next to the machines there are recently restored plaster and terracotta models of military and civil architectures – many of which have not been on display for years.

LEONARDO3 - THE LEONARDO WORLD

The World of Leonardo Exhibition is one of the most important events of the year. This exhibition is not to be missed. The discovery of Leonardo da Vinci, the artist and inventor, with working models of his machines and digitalized restorations of his paintings, a worldwide first.

THE ATLANTIC CODE SECRET

The Ambrosian Library, founded by Cardinal Federico Borromeo was conceived as a centre for study and culture. Through his intervention other institutions came to flourish alongside it, such as the Board of Fellows (Collegio dei Dottori, 1607), the Art Gallery (Pinacoteca, 1618) and the Academy of Drawing for teaching painting, sculpture and architecture (Accademia del Disegno, 1620).
The Library is one of the most important in the world. Its collections number more than a million printed volumes.

THE GENIUS EXPERIENCE. LEONARDO E WARHOL

To celebrate the fifth centenary of Leonardo’s death, from March 1 to June 30, 2019, the Crypt of Leonard hosts a great exhibition by Leonardo da Vinci and Andy Warhol. Through immersive projections, the exhibition will guide you in the Milan lived, designed and imagined by Leonardo da Vinci, to end with the live view of The Last Supper by Andy Warhol, the artwork with which the father of Pop Art reinterpreted Leonardo’s masterpiece in 1986. This touching journey continues through the themes that Leonardo’s visionary mind had anticipated and which marked the history and development of Milan. These include the discovery of water, of the relationship with land and nature and of the technological and architectural innovation that has led to the city of skyscrapers and vertical woods (“Bosco Verticale“) that is Milan nowadays. A unique experience, to be lived in the city where Leonardo invented a new world with his painting, through a capacity for observation that has paved the way to the development of science. An experience that will allow you to immerse yourself in the Milan of music and solidarity, prefigured by the table of the Last Supper, which arrives at the Refectory Ambrosiano, thanks to the unveiling of Warhol’s artwork.
