L'Arte Funzionale and Leonardo da Vinci's Science Museum

Two weeks and a half from now I will be flying to Milan, Italy, to speak here and present the Italian edition of The Functional Art, whose cover you can see on the left (see it also in Among the travels planned for the next few months, this is the one I'm more excited about. Not because the other ones aren't interesting —they certainly are!— but because I've been able to arrange an entire day off to visit art galleries and museums. That's unusual.

The main landmark of the visit will be the Leonardo da Vinci National Museum of Science and Technology. which holds a collection of Leonardo's technical drawings and of models built based on his notes. Take a look at themNon vedo l'ora di vedere tutto questo! (I don't know if Google Translate has done a good job here...)
