A catalog dedicated to Leonardo’s drawings is also offered, which includes almost 700 of them ordered by categories (architecture, technicians, proportions, cartography, etc.) where you can see the master’s fabulous ability to observe, from anatomical studies to architectural plans , going through complex engineering designs or portraits of plump children.
