DISCOVER LEONARDO … a look at the Genius
In the countryside of Vinci, a town of genius, in a fantastic valley enclosed between two large hills, stands Discover Leonardo, a theme museum park on Leonardo Da Vinci, conceived and created by Alberto D.K. Marconcini together with the Carmignani family, owners of the entire area and the Martelli family, master Florentine craftsmen.
The museum park is located in Vinci (FI) inside the Bellosguardo Golf Club, with an entrance open to the public.
Discover Leonardo is represented by two different thematic areas.
The first is “Sulle orme di Leonardo”, a sort of Zen garden among the green hills surrounded by an ancient olive grove. Here we can retrace all the salient stages of Leonardo’s life through illustrative banners, lecterns and audio guides, all in perfect harmony with nature.
The second area is “Trasportati nel tempo”, a pseudo-Renaissance siege field, an ideal battle of Anghiari designed with the possible inventions of Leonardo Da Vinci, even though Leonardo called war a “beastly madness”. Within this area we can find life-size inventions just like the genius had designed them, but never made them. In addition to the war inventions in this area we can also find the “aerial screw” and the “flying machine”.
The entire park is equipped with all services and dining area with authentic typical local dishes.
