Castello dei Conti Guidi
50053 VINCI - FI - Italy

Type: Art, Science

Located in the medieval Castello Guidi (11-12 cen.), the Leonardo Museum dominates the small city of Vinci.

It was inaugurated April 15, 1953, at the conclusion of the celebration of the fifth centennial of Leonardo's birth, with the first exhibit dedicated to models of machines inspired by the designs of Leonardo. The Museum continually enriched its collection with new materials and models.

The opportunity to permanently house the exhibit realized by IBM ITALIA, "Laboratorio su Leonardo", which before arriving in Italy in 1986 had travelled for three years to Italian and foreign cities, gave rise to a complete renovation of the museum.

The restoration of the whole building was financed by the CASSA DI RISPARMIO DI SAN MINIATO. Today, thirty years after its opening, the Leonardo Museum of Vinci displays anew its splendid collection.
