On April 21, the exhibition Leonardo da Vinci. Anatomies: Machines, Human Body, Nature will be inaugurated at Montepulciano Fortress—and will stay open until October 7, 2018. The show is aimed at making the public understand Leonardo’s innovative analysis 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 him, even the Earth is a vast organism whose motions are governed by Nature’s mechanical laws. The exhibition features working models of the machines conceived by Da Vinci and a gallery of mechanical, anatomical and geological studies from his notebooks.
