In Spring 2015, Milan paid tribute to Leonardo by holding a large exhibition at the Palazzo Reale. Based on this stunning exhibition, Leonardo da Vinci: The Genius in Milan uses a combination of documentary interviews and mise-en-scenes to tell the story of the artist's world and the treasures he left us, against the stunning backdrop of Leonardo's Milan.

Drawing upon Leonardo's legendary work as an artist, architect and scientist, audiences will be immersed in the story of Leonardo the man, in the context of what was a truly legendary period in the city's history, and for the history of art.

This exhibition-event is the result of 6 years work by leading Leonardo experts, Pietro Marani and M. Teresa Fiorio, and is divided into 12 sections, retracing with scientific rigor the multiple paths travelled by the mind of the genius: the foundation of drawing, the role of nature and science, comparison between the arts, reflection on the ancients, the utopian projects, anatomy and mechanics, the unity of knowledge, images of the divine, and myths over the centuries (starting with the success of the Mona Lisa).
