In 2019 the world commemorates the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci—the Renaissance man par excellence. The Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (MPIWG) and the Italian Embassy in Berlin invite you to a one-day celebration on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, in which world leading experts will present the different facets of Leonardo’s insatiable curiosity, spanning from technology to science and to art.
The MPIWG—itself celebrating the 25th anniversary since its foundation in 1994 as a center for the history of Renaissance—will open its doors at 14:00. In the evening the Italian Embassy will host the second part of the celebration, followed by a dinner reception.
The Leonardo da Vinci symposium will take place in English.
