As the original works are preserved in museums throughout the world, this is a unique opportunity for artists and art lovers in Guangdong who don’t have the immediate opportunity to travel, to witness Da Vinci’s genius first hand.
The exhibition ‘Leonardo: Opera Omnia’ is designed and implemented by Rai.Com, and curated by prof. Antonio Paolucci, one of Italy’s greatest modern art scholars. The reproductions were made by professionals and reworked in an absolutely faithful way to the original, but with the benefit of today’s sophisticated technology.
