From 19th April to 14th July 2019, Venice’s Gallerie dell’Accademia will unveil a landmark new exhibition to commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the death of Leonardo Da Vinci.
As part of the exhibition, the Accademia will take a rare opportunity to display one of Da Vinci’s most famous drawings, Vitruvian Man, a work usually sealed in the museum’s vault for preservation.

The Vitruvian Man will join 24 of Da Vinci’s most iconic drawings and studies of science and humanism, all loaned from museums around the world as part of a raft of cultural commemorations for the anniversary planned to take place across Italy in 2019.
History enthusiasts can become a part of this epochal exhibition with a stay at the nearby 5*, where the culture concierge can help organise tickets to the display, as well as city tours highlighting Da Vinci’s artistic, social and political legacy.
