Esterno Casa natale di Leonardo

Casa natale di Leonardo

In Leonardo’s birthplace in Anchiano, a cluster of houses about two kilometres from Vinci, there is a permanent exhibition. In the home, the audio-video narration Leonardo in Vinci: A Genius Tells His Story uses modern 3D technology to make Leonardo and his most personal, intimate, less-known universe alive again. The relationship between Leonardo and the Vinci and Montalbano areas, in particular, gains new life thanks to the several drawings that attest to Leonardo’s frequent visits to these places.

A life-size hologram, mixing video, theater and documentary, gives voice to an old and tired Leonardo who, from his last home in Amboise, looks back to the past to recount his relationships and studies, and the events that connected him to this land.

On the other hand, the interactive multimedia app Leonardo Touch presents the pictorial and graphic works of Leonardo, following several research itineraries to interact with the drawings and paintings, so as to discover every detail in them. In the adjacent farmhouse, the section dedicated to The Last Supper, Leonardo’s sole mural painting visible today, displays the HD digital reproduction of the work, a 1:2 scale model projected on a wall. The technology employed allows you to explore the painting through two research modalities, a movement and a touch screen one. It is possible to activate several thematic itineraries, such as the iconographic and historical-artistic ones, as well as one dedicated to restoration.
