This conference series has the aim to present ongoing discussions about Leonardo da Vinci’s personality and work.The speakers were chosen among national and international scholars. They wrote monographs and essays about specific topics about which they are invited to talk about. The aspiration is that many of these conferences present new acquisitions.It will talk about Salvator Mundi attribution, history and restoration (Dianne Dwyer Modestini); Leonardo’s contribution to the rising of the modern science (Evandro Agazzi); the artistic and scientific meaning of his anatomical studies (Domenico Laurenza); Galleria degli Uffizi Adoration of the Magi restoration history and achievements (Cristina Acidini); Leonardo’s authentic face (Edoardo Villata); what all in all might be his truest representation between lonely genius and man of his time (Carlo Vecce).This conference series addresses a large public: teachers, scholars, students, as much as interested readers and also aims to stimulate in them new questions.The publication of revised conferences acts is already planned.
