2019 is the five hundredth anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci, an undisputed “absolute genius”: inventor, military engineer, set designer, anatomist, thinker, man of science, sculptor and painter. Città della Scienza celebrates this date with a full calendar of events and activities dedicated to him.

On 19th and 20th January we will retrace the most important discoveries and inventions in the scientific field of all time! Visitors of Città della Scienza will make a real journey among the most important ones and meeting the scientists who have changed the world.

A whole weekend dedicated to inventions and discoveries as always looking at the past but also with an eye to the future.

Be inspired by the creativity of the inventors of the past, maybe you could become one too!

What are discoveries and how are inventions born?

A Discovery is the result of observing and studying nature or revealing its secrets while an Invention is, instead, something that did not exist before and thanks to a person’s Ingenuity, it subsequently becomes commonplace.
Whether you want to be a discoverer or an inventor, this is the right weekend for you as in addition to a very interesting in-depth interactive scientific study on Leonardo da Vinci it will be possible to analyze together the latest discoveries in terms of nanoparticles, the origin of computers and life-saving vaccines, a casual discovery that has changed the history of man! So many topical issues to be tackled together!

As always a lot of fun in different activities: find within the exhibition spaces of Corporea located on three floors some of the models, patents, prototypes, the most advanced inventions of Italy in the biomedical field that are hidden among the interactive exhibits ; and since human imagination, fortunately, has no limits, we will have fun discovering which are “The Most Useless Inventions of History” with a review of funny and bizarre objects.

During the “Activities” candies will be given kindly offered by Fallani srl, sweets since 1926! A sweet thought for the weekend, a cuddle at the weekend for adults and children!
