What You Can Expect

Leonardo da Vinci's Codex Atlanticus Admission in Milan

Discover the Room of the Exedra in Milan's Pinacoteca Ambrosiana

Leonardo da Vinci was a meticulous note-taker, giving us an intimate look at the mind of a master with the pages of his Codex Atlanticus. The entire collection consists of a dozen volumes and more than 1,000 pages spanning more than 40 years, a selection of which is on display in two different spaces in Milan.

The Pinacoteca Ambrosiana is inside the Biblioteca Ambrosiana, one of the oldest libraries in the world and not typically open to the public.

Codex pages on display are changed every few months. The Pinacoteca Ambrosiana is an art gallery inside a library, and you can see both the Codex exhibit along with other paintings by great masters, such as Caravaggio’s The Basket of Fruit, Raphael’s Cartoon for the School of Athens, Titian’s Adoration of the Magi, and Botticelli’s Madonna del Padiglione. Give yourself about 1.5 hours to visit this exhibit.
