Tomorrow Friday, 21st June at 2.30 pm the really interesting conference “Leonardo da Vinci, the genius, the water and the seawill be held at the Conference Room of the Port Authority of Civitavecchia.

The event is organised by Mibact within the events scheduled by the "National Committee for the Celebration of the 500 years of the death of Leonardo da Vinci”.

Leonardo da Vinci, artist, scientist, engineer and univeral talent of the Italian Renaissance, certainly needs no presentation!

What not many people know is that Leonardo not only probably passed by Civitavecchia, but with his ideas, he contributed to the design of the Historic Port: especially, some of his designs inspired Bramante for the fortification of the Port.

If you want to learn more about this theory, please read this article from "The Roman Darsena - the Port of Civitavecchia" by Roberta Galletta.
