An ex­hi­bi­tion ded­i­cated to Leonardo da Vinci, which puts Naples at the cen­ter of the de­bate about the artist’s ge­nius. Dis­play­ing the fa­mous paint­ing “Salvator Mundi” (for­mer col­lec­tion of the Mar­quis de Ganay), a mas­ter­piece of the ge­nius and his work­shop, and other paint­ings from his charm­ing ate­lier, like the Cristo Benedi­cente, of the mon­u­men­tal com­plex of San Domenico Mag­giore, for the first time pre­sented with an at­tri­bu­tion to the painter Giro­lamo Ali­brandi, from Messina.

On dis­play to the public, the panel with the Christ Child of Salai, the young and controversial as­so­ciate of Leonardo, ac­com­pa­nied by sev­eral works of Leonardo's pupils’ paint­ing such as Marco d'Og­giono. The ex­hi­bi­tion also fea­tures three valu­able graphic col­lec­tions: the Co­razza Code (1640), from the Na­tional Li­brary of Naples, the Fed­erico II Code, kept in the Hu­man­i­ties Li­brary of the Univer­sity Fed­erico II, and the an­cient and mod­ern text of Naples (1815), drawn up by the Ab­bot Domenico Ro­manelli. The ex­hi­bi­tion was con­ceived by Carlo Pe­dretti, di­rec­tor of the Ar­mand Ham­mer Cen­ter for Leonardo Stud­ies at the Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia (U.C.L.A.), the great­est liv­ing ex­pert of da Vinci, and en­joys the sci­en­tific or­ga­ni­za­tion by Ni­cola Bar­batelli.
