For the first time in Venice science, medicine and art meet at Palazzo Zaguri in an exhibition event that combines medical and scientific study with the pleasure of knowledge.
Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s drawings and anatomical studies, from May 18th the exhibition presents 50 real preserved human bodies and 450 organs displayed in fascinating exhibits showing the complexity of the human form.
Five hundred years after his death, Palazzo Zaguri pays tribute to the brilliant precursor of the modern scientific method. The exhibition “Authentic Human Bodies. Leonardo da Vinci“makes the ancient sketches on the beauty and complexity of the human body tangible, precisely in the flesh, thanks to the innovative method of plastination. For the first time in history, Leonardo da Vinci’s famous anatomical drawings come to life with real bodily representations of “Figure in orgasm”, “Vitruvian man” and “Embryological study”.
An extraordinary exhibition in its originality, in which Leonardo’s drawings, still analyzed in anatomy universities, become again a source of artistic and scientific inspiration. The one-of-a-kind exhibition for the originality of the exhibited works is ready to amaze visitors once again in the wonderful context of the ancient Venetian palace.
