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.
