For the first time in history, the Codex Atlanticus is available to the general public. With 1750 drawings on 1119 pages, the Codex Atlanticus is the largest and most amazing collection of Leonardo’s manuscripts. It is not available to the general public, but is kept in the secure vault room of the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana (a few yards from Milan cathedral).
Using the technique of high resolution digitalization, the 100 most fascinating manuscript pages have been reproduced and collected into an interactive book, allowing the pages to be turned and examined directly – something never before available to the public. As well as the ability to zoom in on details with a totally new clarity of enlargement, the three-dimensional animations of the main drawings make it possible for the viewer to easily see how the mechanisms work.

The interactive stations in the exhibition allow access to the virtual Codex Atlanticus through plasma screens and video projections. Another exciting display in the exhibition is the physical reconstruction in wood and iron of the “Multi-cannon Gunship”, which is the drawing that appears on the very first page of the Codex Atlanticus. Naturally, this machine can also be viewed more closely at dedicated interactive stations.

To enjoy more of the Virtual Codex Atlanticus seen at the exhibition, you can purchase the book and its accompanying CD-ROM.
