The genius of Leonardo da Vinci through the drawings preserved at the Biblioteca Reale, Turin and against the historical background of his time. An exhibition of miniatures, paintings, prints and rare books that spans Leonardo’s life from 1452 to 1519, intersecting with the lives of the great figures of the Renaissance, from Erasmus of Rotterdam to Cesare Borgia, and epochal events for European civilisation, from the Fall of Constantinople to Michelangelo’s frescoes in the Sistine Chapel.
