The tightly focused exhibition is devoted to the “Horse and Rider,” including original drawings of the Renaissance genius, as well as a bronze equestrian statue said to have been created by the master.
The exhibition also presents some sculptural works by contemporaries of Leonardo who were influenced by his ideas.
A specialty of the exhibition is its venue: the museum’s beautifully renovated Romanesque Hall, restored to its original beauty and open to visitors for the first time after seven decades of being closed and used as a storage area.
Along with the Leonardo collection, a 650-piece Egyptian display is also on show.
