Leonardo da Vinci Galleries The world’s largest exhibition dedicated to Leonardo as engineer, humanist and nature explorer. A spectacular setting accompanies you on a journey that, starting from 15th-century Florence, traces the training of Da Vinci and the influence of Tuscan engineers up to his stay in the Milan of the Sforza. A journey through the art of war, work and production, flight, waterways and architecture that ends with a perspective on Da Vinci’s influence on Lombard Renaissance painting and an immersive installation dedicated to drawings of the last period of Da Vinci’s activity. More than 1,300 square meters and 170 historical models, works of art, antique volumes and installations that bring the exhibition’s narrative to life. https://www.museoscienza.org/en/leonardo/galleries

Moon rock. A piece of the Goodwill Rock, collected in 1972 by the astronauts of the Apollo 17, the last human mission on the Moon. It is a small rock with an immense value, maybe the most relevant symbol of humanity’s passion for exploration and for scientific and technological challenges. It was donated in 1973 by the American President Richard Nixon to the Italian Republic and later entrusted to the Museum. The rock has allowed scientists to make hypotheses on the origin and nature of the Moon and catch a glimpse of the Solar System’s first instants. https://www.museoscienza.org/en/collection/objects/moon-rock

Vega launcher. The 1:1 scale model of the first Vega (VV01), a vector developed by the European Space Agency (ESA). About 30 meters high and with a mass of 137 tons, it is composed of 4 stages that can transport and release satellites of up to 2,000 kilograms. Unlike most small launchers, it can carry multiple loads into Space, placing them on different orbits. Vega was developed thanks to a collaboration between Italy, France, Belgium, Spain, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Sweden. The first launch took place on February 13, 2012. https://www.museoscienza.org/en/collection/objects/vega-launcher

Extreme. In partnership with CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) and INFN (National Institute of Nuclear Physics,) a fascinating research area explores matter in its most infinitesimal components. The exhibition reveals what goes on inside the laboratories of two of the largest research institutions that carry out experiments related to particle physics. https://www.museoscienza.org/en/offer/permanent-exhibitions/particle-physics

Prada – Luna Rossa. Inside the Aero-Naval Pavillion, the rigid wing catamaran AC72 which was a finalist in the selection regattas for the 34th America’s Cup challenge (San Francisco 2013).

Giovanni V. Schiaparelli’s Merz-Repsold Telescope. In 1886 – when it came to service at the Brera Astronomical Observatory in Milan – the Merz-Repsold telescope was the largest in Italy and one of the most important in the world. With this tool, Schiaparelli conducted his studies on Mars. He observed some structures – shaped like channels – on the surface of the planet. This ignited a debate on their very existence as well as on the possibility of extra-terrestrial life on Mars.

Conte Biancamano ocean liner. Diving into history: the prestigious launch in 1925 in Scotland, the first journey on the Genoa-Naples-New York route, the voyages to South America and the Far East, the transport of U.S. troops during World War II, and the last trips. Today’s survivors are the ballroom and the bridge with the original equipment and some cabins, acquired by the Museum in the 1960s during the disarmament.

As well as the permanent exhibitions:
The famous preparatory cardboard for the School of Athens by Raffaello, after four years of restoration, is back in a new layout inside room 5 of the Picture Gallery. In this regard the architect Stefano Boeri stated: “In the room that hosts the Cartoon of Raphael, we strongly wanted the presence of a huge solid wooden table, created by Riva1920 from a 150-year-old oak, because we believed that the space of contemplation of the extraordinary drawing that represents a School could become a School itself. The large table reminiscent of educational facilities turns the Sala V of Pinacoteca Ambrosiana into a silent and powerful School where the visitor can both admire the Cartoon and read and learn from historical books that detail its history, origin and deep meaning”. The video in English can be seen at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Na0JoPvLiug
