Leonardo da Vinci. Anatomies: Machines, Human Body, Nature

One of the most innovative aspects of Leonardo’s contribution is his analysis of the “organs” of machines, that he considered not as an indivisible whole, but as an assemblage of distinct parts. He applied the same method to the study of the human body, whose organs he regarded as highly sophisticated mechanical devices. For Leonardo, even the Earth is a vast organism whose motions are governed by the universal mechanical laws of Nature. The exhibition features working models of the machines conceived by Da Vinci and a gallery of mechanical, anatomical and geological studies from his notebooks.
