As in Leonardo. The Italian Renaissance scientist, artist, inventor and thinker who nearly 500 years after his death in France at age 67 in 1519 stills exists in the Western mind as the quintessential example of a Renaissance Man.
Until April 28, the Saskatchewan Science Centre is hosting a touring exhibit organized by museums in Italy and France that features interactive models of some of his most famous inventions including the car, bicycle, helicopter, tank and submarine. There are also reproductions of some of his paintings, anatomical drawings and codices — including a high-definition version of The Last Supper.
