When: Until January 6, 2019

City: Poppi

At the center of an exciting high-tech multimedia exhibition is exhibited one of the most famous and "disputed" paintings of Italian art of the sixteenth century. It depicts the fight for the banner, the central scene of the Battle of Anghiari, the legendary fresco of Leonardo (lost) on the right wall of the Salone dei Cinquecento in Palazzo Vecchio, which according to the original decoration program should have illustrated the bloody clash that June 29, 1440, in Anghiari, he confronted the Visconti army, dukes of Milan and a coalition composed of Florentine, papal and Venetian troops.

The work, illegally exported from Italy, after a long wandering between Germany, the United States, Japan, and Switzerland, in 2012 miraculously returned to our country with all the honors.

Through reconstructions of drawing instruments, facsimiles of codes, three-dimensional models and video, it aims to illustrate the mathematical research applied to a painting of Piero and the legacy left to artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Albrecht Dürer, Daniele Barbaro and perspective theorists at least until the mid-sixteenth century.

Author: Donna Scharnagl

It has been more than 25 years since I took my first steps in Italy and I still haven’t found a good reason to leave.  Between the food, the culture, the history, the art, the landscapes … did I mention the food? I have become a lifelong student. It didn't take long to learn that Italians all have stories that long to be told; stories that paint a picture of how hard work produces character, how life is made of ups and downs and how good it feels to laugh.
