Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia “Leonardo da Vinci”, 9th July 2015 h 20:00
ECP 2015 is glad to invite you to an exclusive gala dinner, which will take place on Thursday, 9th July 2015 at 20:00. In line with the main theme of the Congress, which is Linking technology and psychology: feeding the mind, energy for life, the dinner will be held at the National Museum of Science and Technology “Leonardo da Vinci”. The Museum is the largest museum of science and technology existing in Italy, and one of the most important in Europe.
The Museum houses the largest world collection of models interpreting Leonardo’s drawings. Created in the 1950s, it is the first to have dealt systematically with Leonardo da Vinci’s technical-scientific studies.
Today, these models represent an exceptional tool for the study and dissemination of Leonardo’s technical-scientific work, as well as having a unique educational value. A selection of models is permanently exhibited in the Leonardo Gallery.
The Museum works on developing interpretation tools related to this important collection: interactive workshops, multimedia, 3D animations to better understand the functioning of the machines, games, thematic studies on the website, and a recent free Italian and English iPhone App “LeonardoAround” dedicated to the exploration of Leonardo’s work and legacy in Milan.
The dinner will take place in a really fascinating space, overlooking two beautiful Renaissance cloisters. Founded to host the monks of the Olivetan order, the central body of the Museum was built in the early 16th century as a monastery.
In this very special atmosphere, accompanied by the tipical italian food & wine, we will have the opportunity to share all together some pleasant and unique moments.
Congress participants are also cordially invited to share this unforgettable events with their families and accompanying guests.
Previous registration is required.
