Leonardo. Art and science
Curiosity was constant in Leonardo’s entire life; like a devouring fever, this curiosity leads him, through the years, to concern himself with in an uninterrupted stream of research, study and experiments.
Astronomy and architecture, anatomy and machines of war and, naturally, painting. This unique synthesis of art, science and technology is the subject of this volume, which restores all of the complexity to a figure-symbol of the Italian Renaissance.
Leonardo’s machines - D. Laurenza, M. Taddei, E. Zanon
Does Leonardo conceal a secret? A great many instead: we only have to look into the pages of his Codices, at the thousands of drawings of machines contained in those pages. For the first time the work of two designers with a passion for virtual worlds and for Leonardo has made it possible to reconstruct on the computer three-dimensional graphics of the machines on which Leonardo lavished his labour and his genius. Thanks to digital re-elaboration, the descriptions and drawings enable us to see armoured vessels, winches, and all sorts of machines designed for flight, for warfare, for work of all kinds and for hydraulics.
