Mostra permanente "Il genio di Leonardo" [Permanent exhibition "Il genio di Leonardo" (The genius of Leonardo)]

Instituted in 2004 by the Societą Worldwide Museum Activities, the exhibition consists of 40 models of machines – civil, military and for flight – reconstructed on the basis of drawings found in the Codices of Leonardo da Vinci. The exhibition is especially geared to interaction: visitors can experiment directly with the devices, all of which work perfectly.
