Leonardo and the ideal city

The guided tour “Leonardo’s Crypt and the ideal city” is dedicated to one of the purest and most symptomatic themes of Renaissance thought. Indeed, the Renaissance saw the completion of that process which, from Humanism onwards, had increasingly developed an anthropocentric theory of the cosmos.
Leonardo da Vinci was one of the artists who most dedicated himself to the theme of perfect constructions, which in the Milan of the time he could already see in the design of Filarete for the Ca ‘Granda and in the dreams of Ludovico il Moro: Leonardo, in fact, in his projects and drawings, reveals a constant dialogue between the ideal models of the past and the tension towards the perfect project of the future. The city of Milan was even at the center of a Leonardesque urban redevelopment study: Leonardo wanted to transform Milan into a city on two levels, articulated around the Navigli, with modern sewage systems and innovative hygiene measures … a real ideal city.
