Leonardo Da Vinci: Engineering and Inventions

Leonardo Da Vinci: Engineering and Inventions Summary

An artist, scientist, engineer, visionary and all-round genius, Leonardo Da Vinci (1452–1519) was arguably the main figure of the Renaissance.
This project shows on no account a scientific investigation. Its aims are: first to provide a best possible overview about the work of Leonardo da Vinci and secondly to optimize the digitalized art work this means to show a maximum number of the original drawings with a preferable low loss of quality.
