Comparison with other exhibitions
This is the only traveling exhibition presenting accurate and never before seen reconstructions of Leonardo’s Machines such as the Great Kite or the fully playable Harpsichord-Viola, as well as new discoveries (i.e. the snake hidden inside the Last Supper), state-of-the-art restorations (The Last Supper fully digitally restored) and fully interactive codices of Leonardo, digitized from the originals. Most other Da Vinci exhibitions present copies of machines previously seen or contain erroneous models or considered to be “fake” machines not of Leonardo (i.e. the Bicycle)! The World of Leonardo da Vinci has seen excellent reviews around the world including The New York Times.
