Leonardo's Waters. Study seminar

CEDAF - Florence Flood Documentation Center

21 May 2019 at 9 am | Sala Comparetti, Humanities Library, Piazza Brunelleschi 4

This year, so rich with initiatives to commemorate the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci's death, the University of Florence could not miss the opportunity to to compare and reflect, through the recently established CEDAF (Florence Floods Documentation Center), involving various research sectors present within it, in close dialogue with each other. The theme of water in Leonardo's work is intimately connected to the documentation and research work started by the CEDAF and made available to the Italian and international scientific community, as well as to all those interested in the problem of floods.
