“The Other Leonardo” – Conference examines the real – … and the imagined – Da Vinci, today the 5th of October, 2013, at 10am


Carlo Pedretti and Alessandro Vezzosi, two leading figures in the study and lore of Leonardo Da Vinci hold a conference at Pietrasata’s CAV today, the 5th of October, 2013 at 10:30am.

Leonardo Da Vinci has remained a mystery… five hundred years after his tenure as artist and … well, … Renaissance master. He worked as painter, as architect, engineer and scientist and, through his investigations became synonymous with the Italian Renaissance.

Carlo Pedretti, Director of the Hammer Museum’s Leonardo studies, at UCLA – author of over 50 books on the work of the Renaissance master and who is considered the world’s pre-eminent voice on all things Leonardo will discuss the latest developments in the field of Leonardo studies, and some of the sensational recent developments in the field. We expect that a part of his presentation will address the recent attribution of the recently discovered portrait of Isabella D’Este to the master – an attribution that as exciting as it is will be sure to cause a fair amount of controversy.

Alesandro Vezzosi, who has run the Museo Ideale Leonado Da Vinci, since 1993 and who founded the “Archivio Leonardismi nella moderntà” and has curated an extensive body of work on Leonardo “between art and the mass media” speaks on the master’s influence in design and contemporary art.
