Koekelberg Basilica, Brussels
The exhibition presents the different facets of this genius from European history: the man, the artist, the engineer and the humanist. It was held to mark the 50th anniversary of when the Treaty of Rome was signed. Visitors discovered the life and works of this striking figure of the Renaissance, from his village of Vinci to his international influence and its prolonged effects in European hi-tech.
The Da Vinci exhibition boasted a modern set design, combining immersion and interactivity. It included models illustrating his inventions, more than one hundred original documents from the Renaissance and the 16th century, maps, sculptures, paintings, drawings by Da Vinci, but also by Raphael, Michelangelo, Botticelli, Verrocchio, Dürer... as well as all the Codex!
