The “Da Vinci Experience” comes to Florence

The multimedia experience that has captivated the world comes to the Church of Santo Stefano al Ponte, complete with multi-projections and video mapping

After Kilmt and Van Gogh in the former Church of Santo Stefano al Ponte, another immersive exhibition produced by Cross Media and realized by Art Media Studio Firenze has arrived. Until October 8, 2017 (every day from 10am to 7.30pm; tickets cost 13 euro with discounts for families), Leonardo da Vinci, the Renaissance genius, will take center stage with his famous female portraits, large engineering machines, codices and drawings. The spectacular and engaging experience unfolds with multi-projections in video mapping on nine gigantic screens and with hundreds of digitalized high-definition images and HD videos that will continuously loop around the deconsecrated church’s interior, accompanied by a musical score in Dolby surround sound. The exhibition’s mission is cultural divulgation and is defined as “edutainment,” that is, a genre of entertainment that also seeks to educate families and children. The exhibition, which is taking place two years before the 500th anniversary of Leonardo’s death, is a sort of large-scale visual “storytelling”. The show features several models of the artist’s machines, both life-size and in scale, anastatic copies of his codices and drawings, and Oculus virtual reality glasses that, when worn, will allow visitors to “enter” the tank da Vinci designed and interact with its machinery.
