Celebrating Leonardo da Vinci


The show on Aren Pizzas of course come from Italy. And you'll be aware that the most famous Italian could well be. Leonardo Davinci died five hundred years ago. We end the celebrator a year with professor fiorenzo Galli from Millan. Who points to a final event next month to cap tributes to that artistic and scientific genius? He's the National Museum in Milan. Well it's the anniversary as we know how you celebrating it at your museum. First of all Lewis a new lab in which we can teach the engineer. Racial students likely now to work as painter the tradition one of our teeny talent renaissance in the second part of this lab Villanova Engineer. Who's a several machines you can open? You can work. We'll we've citizens threatening to understand the thinking of the now that mechanism how his drawings The way we had a very important exhibition of fifty two tradition historical models talking about Leonardo engineer and twenty nine friscos coming. I'm from churches now. Destroyed about given to assent to celebrate the arson signs and the third thing is a great and very important -portant exhibition in Rome at Squid Equity Nali as the President of China Republic during the three months celebrating Leonardo as a scientist before signs but last and the most important is certification of the new galleries. One thousand three hundred square meters. I in the central part of the museum that we are inside the comment of the sixteenth century in Milano with a new interactive and very interesting cultural and economical investment in the cocktail. Another the venture. That will be opened. The nine of December of the end of the year of CID did Abrasions. Now you said models now. Is it my impression on my wrong. I've seen the models. I saw them in Da Vinci itself where he used to live and I saw the models here in Sydney at the University of Technology Sydney when IBM brought them out. But did Leonardo ever see models off his drawings. We haven't any evidence about that about no not the US the drawing and emitted of study and and he used to walk around having his pocket. A Booklet Drawing Deacon notes trying to understand the things in natural and the works made made by other people in this renison very interesting period of life in Italy and so he draw those things existing in mead made by other forests Brunelleschi. That made a lot of works in Santa. Maria fury in Florence who's in using machines Sheen's still existing when Leonardo went and moved to Flores coming from Vinci Handy. Draw that trying to understand the mechanism and tried try to improve that with his idea. So our interpretation of the reality many many people he met and he worked with them thinking to who improved his knowledge. There have been books recently saying that he has not finished very much. And it only makes sense if you say hey that he was using it as a dialogue not as a finished work. He didn't finish in many works and he left few works when he moved from Florence to Milan. It was a fourteen eighty. Two was thirty years old he needed this pulsar. He need somebody working for war because You know in that appear in Italy. We had seventeen different states. Always fighting together and fighting for instance against France so to present himself to the duke looking talking to be employed there he wrote a letter to present his skills in ten points in the tenth point presenting also like a painter winter really. He presented himself like a military engineer to build. We pawns all the things needed by a powerful duke to fight against against the neighbors are somebody tried to invade them but they are. Now the hated the war. He produced several times his idea. That was our terrible. The thing for human beings he'll have nature and love animals and level the other people know but he had to earn a living. Now what about his anatomy because wonderful drawings wings of the body did he see corpses to DC two sections thirty. See what doctors did. How did he get inside the knowledge of Anatomy? You know that in the period of Italian renaissance began an idea that to the knowledge could not be just philosophy teary thinking but also touching observation experimentation. This is the reason why we think about Leonardo Science before signs close to one Hundred Years Before Leo People for instance to wanted to look at the the body human body likely walks. Houses skeleton can sustain it like for instance in architecture. And this anatomist is a the we buy we learn. Add The for instance could studies thaddeus Moscow's looking at death people. The Moscow of the feces end drawing the most important than the astonishing smile in the history of painting. Painting like for Monalisa. Yes extraordinary work. He was an absolute genius wasn't he yes I'm used to say was awarded a friend of mine. That is a very important geneticist. Nathalie though of the bunch that with a lot of effort somebody can try to be like Isaac Cottin. You can try to be advertised but nobody can try to be Leonardo Da Vinci. Yes do we. I understand really how that incredible genius grew up. How did he manage it? He spent the first part of his life without any mutation because he was an an legitimate son so he had not any formal education so he spends the first part of his life looking around the countryside looking at the animals looking at the reverse looking nature thinking trying to understand something by himself. This was the at the beginning of CNC who was a eight year old then. The family moved to Florence and when he was eight nine years old. The father. The okay you you hadn't occasions but you can work with hands so go to that boutique at Iraqs workshop of Andrea the rockets families. This culture is at least 'cause. The workshop of that is in that period was made by people working iron working with ceramics painting ask culture a great deal of skills needed to work in that Workshop and so he had a lot of different convergent opportunities to understand things and he was very clever and he talked with people and had a lot of opportunities to develop Phillip this geniality in his life and then he's to doubt especially as painter. That was the beginning of fortune in in Flores. orest professor Fiorenzo Galli from the National Museum of Science and Technology in Milan with a final tribute to Leonardo opening on the ninth of December.
