The temporary exhibition “Leonardo Da Vinci Parade” - curated and developed by the Leonardo da Vinci National Museum of Science and Technology - 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.
The exhibition is an unusual combination of art and science in an unprecedented show which touches Da vinci’s numerous fields of interest and study through the worldwide renown historic collection of the Museum.
