Leonardo Da Vinci, the Universal Genius, marked the transition from the Middle Ages to the modern age, creating works of art and projects that hide features and symbols which are still, even today, shrouded in mystery. The exhibit features 46 inventions made according to Leonardo’s sketches and faithful reproductions of his most famous paintings, in an immersive and engaging space that will enable the public to experience a veritable multimedia journey through painting, mechanics, detailed themed projections, holograms and educational audio recordings.
For the first time in Italy, visitors will be able to admire a full-size reproduction of the Last Supper, the controversial painting at the centre of Dan Brown’s novel “The Da Vinci Code”. The reproductions of the paintings of Leonardo were done by Bottega Artigiana Tifernate, and are all effectively masterpieces in their own right that meet the standards of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism.
The 22 works on show include The Mona Lisa, the Lady with an Ermine, Ecce Homo and the two versions of the Virgin of the Rocks, all faithfully recreated in scale 1:1 with the original materials used by the famous Renaissance Master.
