Da Vinci's The Science Before Science Exhibition In Rome

Dates: 13.03.19 - 30.06.19. Address: Scuderie del Quirinale, Via Ventiquattro Maggio 16, 00186 Rome, Italy.

Rome is set to devote a major exhibition to one of Italy’s most famous countrymen, namely Leonardo da Vinci. Entitled 'The Science Before Science' (La Scienza Prima Della Scienza in Italian), the exhibition is as a part of festivities created to mark the 500th anniversary of the death of this great scientist, artist and inventor. Taking place at the Scuderie del Quirinale palace from the 13th March until the 30th June 2019, visitors can admire more than 200 pieces of his work, including some of his most famous works, which are credited with developing the parachute, tank and helicopter. Born in the Medici-ruled Republic of Florence in 1452 and a driving force behind the Renaissance, exhibition curator Claudio Giorgione described da Vinci as being a "European citizen of the world"; he died in France in 1519 at the age of 67. The exhibition, in collaboration with the National Museum of Science and Technology of Milan and the Veneranda Biblioteca Ambrosiana traces the technological and scientific work of da Vinci and reflects on how "the myth of Leonardo" was developed.
