Paris, the Louvre Museum. A spring morning. Under the watchful gaze of our 4K cameras Leonardo da Vinci’s famous painting “La Belle Ferronière” is removed from the wall, packed and sent by plane to Milan where, on the occasion of EXPO 2015, the most important cultural event of the year will be inaugurated: “Leonardo 1452- 1519”, one of the most decisive exhibitions ever to be held on Leonardo.
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, myths over the centuries (starting with the success of the Mona Lisa), and so on.
