Leonardo 500th anniversary in Jerusalem

Italian Ambassador to Israel Gianluigi Benedetti opened an exhibition at the Bloomfield Science Museum in Jerusalem titled 'The Questions of Leonardo', commemorating the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci's death. 

"Given that Leonardo's heritage has universal value, we Italians are very proud of his roots," Benedetti said.

The museum said the exhibition, which was organised with the Italian Embassy and the Italian Institute of Culture, focuses on "the across-the-board curiosity of Leonardo, who many consider the most curious person in the world".

From the time he was a child, Leonardo's method for knowledge was based on three precepts: question, observe, record.

Working off this idea, the exhibition has more than 40 different objects and displays, many of which are interactive, and which organisers said aim to allow visitors to question, experiment, and put themselves in Leonardo's shoes.

The show is divided into four areas and covers topics such as anatomy and the human body, botany, geology, flight, mechanics, optics, and drawing.

Organisers said Leonardo's various fields of interests "involved a far-reaching process for which the exhibition's staff consulted a large number of researchers and experts, including art and theatre scholars, musicians, doctors, botanists, and ornithologists".

Visitors to the exhibition first encounter "Leonardo's Theatre", a Renaissance-style space dedicated to the extraordinary theatrical machines Da Vinci designed.

Benedetti said paying tribute to the genius of Leonardo is important on a two-fold level, given that "this year diplomatic relations between Italy and Israel have reached 70 years".

"It's a period full of cooperation, dialogue and mutual enrichment, a strong bond confirmed by this event," Benedetti said.
