Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in Switzerland
Léonardo Da Vinci, the inventor

Léonardo Da Vinci, the inventor
MARTIGNY  •  Fondation Gianadda  •  Ongoing
Over 100 reproductions, including some coloured by hand and adapted from his drawings and studies, illustrate the creative power of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519): engineer and architect, builder of bridges and town planner, anatomist and versatile clockmaker.

Produced according to his sketches, the movable models that the visitor can actually pick up and handle make it possible to grasp Leonardo's ideas. The various multimedia stations offer in-depth information illustrated in over 8,000 images, providing countless interesting details about the Renaissance and life and works of Leonardo.
