Leonardo Da Vinci – The Workings of a Beautiful Mind Come to San Jose, Costa Rica
Consisting of nine themed rooms, the fascinating exhibition showcases 64 replicas of machines combined with their meticulous sketches drawn by the masterfully-minded Da Vinci. These replicas were lovingly re-created by artisans from the renaissance capital of Florence, Italy.
Visitors to the exhibition can view a series of Da Vinci’s concepts that became an
everyday reality many years later. Bicycles, cars, planes, bridges and musical instruments show that Da Vinci was not only a skilled artist but also an inventor, scientist and architect.
