AFTV CULTURAL / PL : THE LUME and Leonardo da Vinci - 500 Years of Genius

The AFTV has secured a limited number of places to visit this exhibition dedicated to exploring the life of the greatest creative genius the world has ever known,  Leonardo da Vinci, The Lume's most ambitious, immersive and breathtaking experience yet‍.  

We are pleased to invite members and guests where sights, sounds, scents, touch and taste combine to give visitors a unique chance to enter into the chronological narrative beginning in Leonardo's birthplace Vinci and ending in Amboise, France, where he spent the last 20 years of his life selling his masterpiece, the Mona Lisa (La Joconde), to his friend François 1, as well as visiting Italian cities where he worked- Florence, Venice, Milan.


The Leonardo da Vinci experience showcases the master's innovation, art and timeless genius to inspire visitors of all ages and subject areas. Visitors can immerse themselves in Leonardo's world and life story, featuring original pages from his Codex Atlanticus, notebooks, revealing his insatiable curiosity spanning anatomy, engineering, flying machines and hydraulic systems.

Artist, inventor, scientist, philosopher and musician, Leonardo da Vinci transcends his era. Not only did he create masterpieces never surpassed for their beauty, technique and anatomical accuracy; his pioneering contributions in architecture, engineering and flight, laid the foundations for many modern innovations, making his influence more profound and far-reaching than anyone who has followed.

What can you experience as well as the vast 3,000m² multi-sensory gallery?     

  • Upstairs- 40-50“machine inventions", crafted by and on loan from, the Museo Leonardo da Vinci in Rome.
  • Mona Lisa Revealed, a room dedicated to ‍the pioneering work of the French Optical Engineer M. Pascal Cotte, consultant  to The Louvre Museum whose research peels back the layers of paint, revealing previously hidden details of the Mona Lisa including the only exact 360º replica in the world.
