ROOM II : War machines

Via della Conciliazione, 19, Rome, 00193, Italy
Permanent Exhibition

Da Vinci’s Codices Arundel and Atlanticus contain numerous studies of military machines and weapons. One example is the ground-breaking invention of the tapered projectile, the same kind used by the British at the Battle of Waterloo.
The second room of the Leonardo Da Vinci Experience exhibition features some of the most fascinating war machines built to Leonardo’s designs: the Catapult, conceived to overcome fortified walls, the lethal Cannon and the innovative Multi-Directional Gun Machine with twelve barrels arranged in a semicircle which could be raised and lowered to adjust the range.

The Room of Mirrors is also located in this room: an ingenious chamber with eight mirrored walls allowing an object to be viewed in its entirety without having to move it. Seeing is believing!
