"La mente di Leonardo" at the Palazzo Venezia

At the Palazzo Venezia until August 30, 2009 is the exhibit, La mente di Leonardo or The Mind of Leonardo.

The exhibit looks at the works of Leonardo as a way of providing visitors to the exhibition with a glimpse into how this icon of the Italian Renaissance and our world’s cultural heritage thought and conceived his ideas. The show hopes to recreate the “creative personality” of Leonardo as a way of learning more about his methodology – a man who was not only an artist but a scientist, writer, philosopher and engineer.

The exhibition is located at the Palazzo Venezia (Museo nazionale di Palazzo Venezia), Via del Plebiscito 118 (see map below). The exhibit is open from 10am until 7pm (closed Mondays). Remember that ticket windows/box offices close an hour before the museum/exhibit closes.

Tickets cost 9 euro.

There’s no metro stop near the museum, but it’s a short walk a few block south of the Trevi Fountain. The Piazza Venezia, where the museum is located, is not hard to find or reach and is most definitely on your map.
