The genius of Leonardo da Vinci on display in Tuscany

Leonardo da Vinci is one of Italy's most famous artists and created masterpieces including the Mona Lisa, The Last Supper and the Annunciation. He was born in Vinci (close to Florence, hence his name "da Vinci", meaning "from Vinci") in 1452 and was active in Florence, as well as other iconic Italian cities, such as Milan and Venice.

As well as painting, da Vinci was also considered a sculptor, architect, engineer and scientist, and is credited with the invention of modern-day technology, including the parachute. There is certainly no doubting the genius of da Vinci and a new display in Montepulciano in Tuscany attempts to show the great artist's "visions" through several unseen exhibits, including reproductions of da Vinci's machines and a 7 ft reconstruction of the Equestrian Monument.

The exhibition is on display at the Fortress in Montepulciano and Giardino di Poggiofanti, and will be open to the public until September 17th. It is the perfect opportunity to really delve inside the mind of Leonardo da Vinci and see visual interpretations of his theological ideas and reproductions of his scientific experiments.
