Leonardo da Vinci’s love for science
Originally from the Tuscany region, he has been exploring the world around him since his early childhood. Then he became the apprentice of Verrochio (the famous Florentine painter), with whom he learned sculpture, drawing, painting…
Then he moved to Milan where he became a recognized painter and engineer, it is during this period that he painted the famous “Last Supper” on the walls of the refectory of the cloister Santa Maria delle Grazie. It is for him the moment to put into practice his colossal work on the representation of human emotions in painting.
He then painted the Mona Lisa, while continuing his scientific research on fauna, flora and the human body, including one of the most famous works“Vitruvian Man“.
The main interest of this museum is the gallery dedicated to him. You will discover paintings, drawings and especially models of these different inventions, made from his numerous technical drawings.
The Last Supper (1626), by Giovanni Mauro della Rovere, is exhibited as a tribute to the painter’s masterpiece.

1. INTOMILAN Aparthotel Galleria Duomo, situé à quelques minutes à pied du Duomo. La situation géographique de l’hôtel est parfaite pour visite Milan. Notre chambre était spacieuse, propre et avec une décoration soignée. Nous y avions passé un excellent séjour.
2. Brera apartments Alla Scala nous avions longuement hésité avec cet hébergement également très bien placé. C’est un appartement donc cela permet de se faire à manger plus facilement qu’à l’hôtel.
