Authentic Human Bodies – Leonardo da Vinci
May 18 - September 30
Real parts of the body reproduce Leonardo da Vinci’s studies on the muscles of the human arm, rather than the spine or the vascular system, the organs of the thorax and the female abdomen, ending with the Vitruvian man.
All this has been possible thanks to the innovative process of plastination, a system of conservation of organic portions, developed in the late nineties in Germany and now used in universities for anatomy lessons and to improve the practices of endoscopy.
On May 18, 2019, the history of science, the history of medicine and the history of art meet in a single place, Palazzo Zaguri in Venice, in an exhibition event capable of combining the medical and scientific study to the pleasure of knowledge.
A tribute to the genius and his immense intellectual curiosity, which has given the world and delivered to history works of immeasurable artistic and scientific value.
