Florence, Milan and Rome celebrate Leonardo and his genius

On 2 May 2019, Italy and the whole world are ready to remember the day on which Leonardo da Vinci died, celebrating his 500th anniversary. Throughout the year exhibitions dedicated to him will take place in three major Italian cities that we are ready to bet, perhaps taking advantage of the Resort casino sign up offer, are going to attract visitors from all over the world.

The great genius was born on April 15, 1452. He was the illegitimate son of a respected Florentine notary public and he was raised by his father and stepmother on the family estate in nearby Vinci. He lived with his uncle and grandparents in Vinci until he was 14 years old. Then he moved to Florence for his apprenticeship in the workshop of Andrea del Verrocchio.

- At Palazzo Strozzi, until July 14, an exhibition will combine masterpieces by Andrea del Verrocchio and other great masters of the fifteenth century with works by Leonardo da Vinci.

- Palazzo Vecchio will take part in the celebration by exhibiting the Codex Atlanticus, created when he was still living in Tuscany.

- The Museo Galileo has been planning an exhibition on the theme "Leonardo and his books" since June, where a replica of the Perpetual Motion Machine will be on display.

-In Prato, a multimedia exhibition open until May 26 at the Museo del Tessuto tells the story of Leonardo's research on the mechanization of weaving through drawings, paintings and models.

- In Vinci, visitors will be able to see Leonardo's first documented work, considered by many to be the first European landscape. The work can only be exhibited for short periods of time and will therefore be visible for only 5 weeks from April 15, the anniversary of Leonardo's birth.

Leonardo lived in Milan for a period of 17 years. During his stay in Milan, Leonardo was asked to work on many projects, including the Last Supper. Among the main exhibitions are:

- Leonardo and his school in the Ambrosiana Collections. Four consecutive exhibitions will be held throughout the year at the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, showing Leonardo's drawing techniques and studies of architecture and science.

- The Last Supper after Leonardo, from April to June 2019, at the Stelline Foundation. The exhibition will explore the impact of Leonardo's work on contemporary art, with works by Anish Kapoor, Wang Guangxi and others.

- At the Castello Sforzesco, where Leonardo lived, opening of the restored Sala delle Asse, from May 2 to January 2020. Here you can see the walls and ceiling frescoed with a natural theme created by Leonardo for the Duke of Milan, Ludovico il Moro.

- Nature, Art, Science. From May 16 to August 18 in the Ducal Chapel. Drawings on the nature of Leonardo and other artists of the Italian and foreign Renaissance.

- Leonardo's Dinner for Francesco I: a masterpiece in Silk and Silver, from October 7, 2019 to January 23, 2020 at the Palazzo Reale. This very rare work is on loan from the Vatican Museums.

Da Vinci moved to Rome in 1513. Giuliano de' Medici guaranteed him a monthly salary together with an apartment in his residence at the Vatican.

Scuderie del Quirinale: Leonardo da Vinci. Science before science, until July 28. The exhibition includes works that allow you to discover the technical and scientific discoveries of the genius. On display are the projects of the flying machines, the use of perspective, the studies of the ideal city and the incredible mix of classical tradition and scientific innovation.
