Graphic reflections, project and construction techniques throught three-dimensional modeling

In the prestigious hall of Podestà of the Conti Guidi Castle a multimedia exhibition to learn and deepen Leonardo's studies on architecture.

The exhibition, curated by Sabine Frommel, Hermann Schlimme, Emanuela Ferretti and Stefano Bertocci, addresses some particular problems related to Leonardo's architectural studies, documented by numerous drawings and annotations scattered in his manuscripts, sometimes underestimated or not fully understood.

The use of themost modern technologies has made possible to re-read some of Leonardo's drawings and projects, allowing them to be reconstructed in physical and three-dimensional form.

In particular, his knowledge of construction techniques, his projects for Piombino and the drawings referring to architectures known as the “clean stable" and the "ideal city" were subjected to verification with scientific results of substantial novelty.

Also exhibited are some reproductions of Leonardo's manuscripts from the Biblioteca Leonardiana: the B and L manuscripts of France, the Madrid Codes I and II and three tables taken from the Codex Atlanticus. They amaze with their great fidelity to the originals.
