Leonardo architectural designs on show in Vinci till Feb 27

Three foreign unis probe building techniques

(ANSA) - ROME, NOV 24 - Leonardo da Vinci's architectural designs will be on show in the Leonardo Museum in his birthplace Vinci near Florence from today until February 27.
    Wednesday's presentation was part of an international symposium involving three foreign universities probing the inventions, building techniques and urban projects of the Renaissance genius.
    The show analyses Leonardo's uses of trusses, ribs and straight arches, along with other architectural features, illustrating them via 3-D printing and other cutting edge technologies.
    One section is devoted to the fortifications Leonardo designed for Piombino near Livorno, and another on his designs kept in Vinci's Leonardo Library. (ANSA).
