In Pordenone, Leonardo's world is... interactive

The PAFF! Palazzo Arti Fumetto Friuli in Pordenone hosts until September 27, 2020 the exhibition Leonardo's World. Interactive Codes, Machines, Drawings

It opened on June 28 and will be open until September 27, 2020, the exhibition Leonardo’s World. Interactive Codes, Machines, Drawings set up at the PAFF! Palazzo Arti Fumetto Friuli in Pordenone, an innovative museum that focuses on interactive exhibits.

Alongside never-before-seen full-size reconstructions of Leonardo’s machines and drawings, the exhibition offers an interactive journey through the complete repertoire of works in digital form: visitors have the chance to virtually browse through the Codex Atlanticus, the largest collection of Leonardo’s writings and drawings, in its entirety. An immersive journey inside the genius’ inventions, in which adults and children can be active participants.

The exhibition includes a collection of prototypes of the machines, made from Leonardo’s written notes, including some previously unpublished ones, such as the Great continuo organ, which would revolutionize the traditional use of the musical instrument.
Twelve machines made in real size and scale, four flying machines with wingspans of more than 4 meters, and four vessels are just some of the reconstructions of Leonardo’s famous inventions. Also on display among them is theforerunner of the modern robot, the well-known mechanical lion, made to scale, 3 meters long. Also, two working key musical instruments and a selection of drawings, official reproductions from the Royal Vinci Commission. Not only models and reproductions of twenty drawings, but also an in-depth journey to learn about everything behind his pioneering inventions.

A knowledge mediated through state-of-the-art technological tools, such as multimedia stations, which offer the opportunity to leaf through two of Leonardo’s most important texts: the famous Codex Atlanticus and the Codex on Flight. To understand how the machines work, it is possible to open them up, disassemble the inventions and reassemble them virtually, thanks to software that breaks them down into bricks of a digitized game.

The exhibition is produced with the support of the Autonomous Region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia and the City of Pordenone.
