No one approaches Leonardo da Vinci when it comes to the supreme Renaissance fusion of art and science, medicine and technology, not to mention meteorology, hydraulics and aviation, all of which he invented. This touring exhibition from Italy meticulously reconstructs full-scale models of some of da Vinci’s contraptions, like the “aerial spiral,” and makes them immersive and hands-on interactive for visitors of all ages. The famous diagram Vitruvian Man (c. 1492), here animated, symbolizes the era’s connection of the human body to architectural planning.
