ANATOMY FROM THE MIDDLE AGES TO LEONARDO DA VINCI

EXTENDED UNTIL OCTOBER 11

The anatomy from the Middle Ages to Leonardo da Vinci, curated by Paola Salvi, features a selection of volumes, all part of the very rich catalog of the Ambrosiana Library, which allows you to trace the evolution of the studies in medicine and anatomyfrom the beginning of the millennium to the time when Leonardo da Vinci was active.

From May 30 the Sala Federiciana will host a selection of drawings from the Codex Atlanticus. The first section, consisting of 8 sheets and curated by Paola Salvi, will be dedicated to Leonardo’s anatomy studies. Among these are the famous f. 327 verso, considered a “manifesto” of Leonardo’s scientific method and f. 834 r, focused on the construction of a mechanical wing that incorporates the skeleton of the natural bird wing in the shape and articulation of the segments, in turn studied in other sheets with a comparative criterion with the human limb.
The exhibition is enriched by a series of volumes of anatomical subject coming from the Library’s funds .Particular mention deserves a splendid manuscript which includes, among other texts, Albucasis’ Chirurgia and the Anathomia of the monk Constantine the African, whose translations made known in the West the great works of Arab medicine. It contains about 200 illustrations of surgical instruments, many of which were designed by the author.
In the second section, it will be possible to admire eight drawings of the Atlantic Code dedicated to studies of watch mechanisms: Leonardo was fascinated by the potential of watchmaking mechanisms, not only to understand their functioning, but also to adapt their automatic gears to other mechanical devices. Among the selected designs, the famous f. 1111 v, where Leonardo reproduces the clock mechanisms of the Chiaravalle Abbey.
