2019 is the year of Leonardo! To honor one of the brightest minds in the history of man-kind five centuries after his death, Florence - a city in which Leonardo lived, was formed and inspired by it - is swarming with exhibitions, initiatives and installations dedicated to the genius of Vinci. Opening the celebrations was the exhibition at the Uffizi of the Leicester Code, on loan from owner Bill Gates.
