Leonardo's bicycle

65,00 €

This is probably the most controversial and mysterious Leonardo drawing that has been discussed since its discovery, which took place in a fortuitous and unexpected way, between 1966 and 1968, in the laboratory of restoration of ancient books of the Esarchico Monastery of Santa Maria di Grottaferrata (Rome).

In the cleanup operations of the Codex Atlanticus, consisting of 1300 pages by Leonardo da Vinci, the monks came across two glued sheets. They decided to separate them and discovered 133 drawings on the front of the sheet: a caricature, a sketch (in which some scholars have seen two male sexual organs with legs) associated with the inscription Salai', and a bicycle. The drawings are clearly by a different hand from that of Leonardo, which the scholars of the time attributed to pupils of the master, who, as they had done on other occasions, had copied his drawings into one of the many sheets already used. So it was believed that the invention was still attributable to Leonardo, also because it was immediately associated with the chain of the Madrid I Codex which it was believed could complete the invention. Over time, two schools of thought have formed, on the one hand those in favor of the hypothesis of Leonardo's invention and, on the other, those who favor the false historical. As far as we are concerned, we took the cue from the decidedly childish drawing of the Atlantic Code, to design a bicycle much more in line with Leonardo's drawings, both from an aesthetic and a technical point of view, starting for example from the fact that it is can mount without glue, but only with jointed pieces.

This is not a completely new invention, but the optimization of an existing weapon. In fact, at the time of Leonardo bombards were used in sieges. Their large mouth allowed them to fire large bullets that could easily open large breaches in enemy defenses. However, the machines were very heavy and took a long time to maneuver.

In the 1950s, Harold Edgerton, a professor of electrical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, combining strobe lights with a camera equipped with a high-speed film advance motor, studied the way to capture images invisible to the naked eye, that is, those that they are formed when a drop falls on a flat surface: the human eye sees the sequence that develops in a fluid way, but is unable to capture all the images of which it is composed.

THE ORNITHOTTERY OR FLYING MAN is a tribute to the genius of Leonardo da Vinci. To his skills as an inventor, to his technical and artistic skills, to his refined aesthetic taste. It is the recognition of his continuous studies, the search for beauty, balance and the measure of things that make life pleasant. It is the result of a long technical and image study, as well as a patient synthesis that took into account not only the intuitive aspects of Leonardo's flight, but also of the Tuscan culture.
