— All men dream to fly. Only one took real steps to actually realize that dream! If there is an exhibition not to be missed while you in #Rome, this is The Genius and His Inventions.
This Leonardo da Vinci Machines Exhibition celebrates the universal genius of Leonardo by displaying fifty full scale machines: flying machines, like the precursor to the parachute, a bicycle, a hydraulic saw, and many other inventions. They are all fully operational and they can be touched and set them in motion, to grant a deep interactive experience of understanding the genius of Leonardo da Vinci. More than a Tour of Rome this is a tour of the sky over Rome.
The machines are grouped into 5 sections. The four elements of nature - water, air, earth and fire and the mechanism section, which includes all those basic machines, with different possibility of application, like the conversion of motion or the endless screw. One of the most interesting project is the Armoured Tank, for the first time in Rome in life size: it weights two tons, and about six meters in diameter, and three meters high.
The Exhibition is inside the historical Palazzo della Cancelleria (Piazza della Cancelleria next to Piazza Campo de’ Fiori) in Rome.
