where he was baptized, the streets and the squares of the castle that still
have their medieval appearance. Leonardo's presence can be felt everywhere.
Leonardo Museum is considered to be one of the largest and most original collections of machines and models of Leonardo the inventor, technologist and engineer. Each model is shown together with precise references to the artist's sketches and annotations.
