The Museum of the Bridge of Gioconda and of Leonardo Da Vinci in Arezzo

If you are planning to visit Ponte Buriano,  also known as the “Bridge of Gioconda,” you should also check out the small museum nearby dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci. The Museum of the Bridge of Gioconda is an archival museum and open to visitors of all ages. The history of Leonardo’s connection to Arezzo and its valleys is recounted through the museum’s maps, machines and interactive 3-D displays. The research of Carlo Starnazzi, an Art Historian who has studied the backdrop of the famous painting supports the notion that the background contains a depiction of Ponte Buriano. The museum also has reproductions of Leonardo’s hydraulic machines and important geographical maps drawn by the great master in the early 16th century. The most important example of these reproductions is that of the Val di Chiana area, originally done by Leonardo in 1502. Today this map is preserved in its original form and displayed in the Royal Library of Windsor Castle. 

Take a journey back in time, seen through the eyes of one of the greatest masters in the world.
