Your AGT guide will enable you to discover how many of Leonardo son of Ser Piero de Vinci’s works are in Florence. In comparison with his varied and manifold output, only a few of his masterpieces have remained in town. Why? The great genius was encouraged, in 1482, to visit Milan. Leonardo had been embroiled in various sodomy scandals, and he was given recommendations as a musician by Lorenzo the Magnificent and made his way to the Milanese court.
Your AGT guide will first take you into the Uffizi Galleries, one of the most important museums in the world, after which you will cross the square to Piazza San Firenze, where Leonardo’s father, a notary, had his studio when he received the commission to paint the Monna Lisa, one of his most famous works. The next item will be a private museum where the Niccolai Collection of the Florentine Craftsmen, or Museum of Leonardo’s Machines is situated. The collection consists of over 50 models – from flying machines to warfare engines to anatomical models. Many of the models can be handled by visitors, so that they can best understand how they work.
