LEONARDO DA VINCI E LE ARTI NUOVE

On display are twenty models, reproduced from the original drawings of Leonardo da Vinci: flying machines and elevators, war machines and innovative work tools. 500 years after the death of the genius from Vinci, Palmanova wanted to remember the figure of the great thinker, organizing the exhibition "Leonardo da Vinci and the new Arts - Civil and military arts in the Renaissance", which can be visited in the Napoleonic Powder Museum of Contrada Garzoni up to March 1st, 2020. The exhibition is open, with free admission, from Tuesday to Sunday, from 9.30am to 12.30pm and from 3.00pm to 6.00pm. Closed on December 25th, 26th and 31st and January 1st 2020. Visitors can admire the "Great Wing" with its five meter opening and the "mechanical dragonfly". An exhibition enriched by an original copy of the treatise Delle Fortificazioni by Buonaiuto Lorini, military engineer and architect of the construction of Palmanova. Directly from the Leonardo Museum of Vinci and from the work of the research group Artes Mechanicae, the models and the rich didactic apparatus will accompany the visitor in a fascinating journey dedicated to Leonardo's multiform work and the most fruitful results of his prolific technical-scientific activity. The fortress of Palmanova, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, represents the perfect synthesis between the humanistic thinking of the ideal city and the mature expression of architecture and military engineering studies between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This exhibition is a journey between civil and military arts, in one of the most creative periods in the history of human thought. Among the models of machines, reproduced with technical rigor and careful research of materials, visitors will find exposed elevator, crane, odometer, suspension mechanisms, tank, machine gun, assault ladder, bastion and fortresses, flying sphere, screw aerial, large wing, parachute, mechanical dragonfly, glider, wing anchored to the ground. These are flanked by three demonstration videos (The construction site of the dome of the Cathedral of Florence, The fusion of the cannons, The ascending flight) and thirty panels of guide to the exhibition. The exhibition was carried out by the Municipality of Palmanova, thanks to the contribution of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, with the collaboration of the Municipality of Vinci, of the Leonardo Museum of Vinci, thanks to the scientific direction and general organization of Arte Mechanicae and with the support of PromoTurismo FVG.
