Da Vinci as you've never seen him before.

Da Vinci's genius has been the subject of thousands of exhibitions over the centuries, and his 500th birthday celebrations are unlikely to change the fact. Nevertheless, the exhibition offered by the Biblioteca Nacional de Madrid stands out. Its angle: not the work, but the genetic heritage of the painter. Driven by the work of historians, geneticists and archaeologists, the presentation will highlight little known details of his paintings.
