Leonardo's mechanical genius on display


Milan, September 10 - Examples of the technical and
mechanical genius of Leonardo da Vinci are on display at Milan's
historic Biblioteca Ambrosiana in an exhibition on through
December 8.
The show includes 44 sketches from Leonardo's Codice
Atlantico (Atlantic Code) collection, involving inventions and
projects of the Renaissance man.
Curated by Matthew Landrus from the University of Oxford
and Pietro Cesare Marani of Milan's Politecnico institution, the
exhibition includes a wide range of machines invented by
Leonardo - from rotisserie devices to specialized mirrors.
Among other things, the show will demonstrate that many of
the inventions could actually have worked, said Marani.
