Osaka –The “Da Vinci, the Legacy of a Genius” exhibition is a big hit

An exhibition entitled “Da Vinci, the Legacy of a Genius” is being held in Osaka to celebrate 35 years of twinning between the Japanese city and Milan. The event, which focuses on “Leonardo the scientist”, runs until Feb. 14. It is divided into sections: the first, dedicated to the past, includes reproductions of machines designed by Leonardo in the Codex Atlanticus; the second, which deals with the present, highlights how his insights have been applied to modern technology. The third is devoted to the future and makes an interesting correlation between Leonardo’s studies on the human body and robotics.

An exhibition on show in Osaka to celebrate 35 years of twinning between Osaka and Milan

The exhibition, organised by Kansai Television with the National Museum of Science and Technology Leonardo da Vinci of Milan and the support of the Italian Consulate General in Osaka, has received 9,000 visitors, with another 15,000 expected. Its success, besides the fact that it is dedicated to the great Italian scientist and inventor, is due to the presence of the android “Leonardo”, created by Professor Asada of Osaka University, which had been exhibited at the National Museum of Science and Technology in Milan during the Osaka week at Milan Expo 2015.
