The Genius of Leonardo

Istanbul is once again playing host to a wonderful exposition. In collaboration with “Next Generation” a Greek events organizer, Rahmi Koc Museum in Halic is offering us the possibility to discover Leonardo Da Vinci’s inventions. Here is the official description which can be found alongside more information on the actual event website:

“The exhibition contains 40 machines that were built after in-depth study of Leonardo da Vinci’s designs, by a group of scientists and skilled craftsmen.

Its uniqueness lies in the fact that the mechanisms are life-sized and fully operational. Visitors may touch and set them in motion, combining fun with instruction.

The exhibits take the spectator into the magical world of machines devised by Da Vinci. Not only did this master engineer solve practical problems. Long before our era, he also conceived the precursors of machinery that has been quite recently manufactured, such as the tank, machine gun and aircraft. “

One exhibition after the other, Istanbul managed to prove to the world that it can host such events with success and grace.
