The first permanent museum devoted to Leonardo Da Vinci to open in Rome

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. Painter, sculptor, engineer, scientist, he was the most ingenious mind of the Italian Renaissance.

For the first time in history, Rome hosts a major collection of inventions built according to Leonardo’s projects as well as spectacular reproductions of his internationally acclaimed masterpieces.

Leonardo da Vinci Experience is a fascinating journey through painting, mechanics, detailed themed projections, holograms and educational audio recordings. The permanent exhibit features 50 inventions made according to Da Vinci’s original sketches and 23 reproductions of his most famous paintings, from the Mona Lisa to the Last Supper, faithfully recreated in scale 1:1 with the original materials used by the artist.
