Leonardo’s Bicycle

The design of this model is in the margin of page 133V of the  Codex Atlanticus, dated around 1493, amazed people by his genius and intuition of mechanical technologies that would have been adopted  only after several centuries , so that it become an icon of Leonardo, present in almost all the museums dedicated to the genius of Vinci.

In fact the design of the ” bicycle ” appeared during the restoration of the Codex Atlanticus, between 1966 and 1969, between two sheets glued together . Later , the experts doubted that the design was made ​​by Leonardo, attributing it to the disciples, or more likely  to those who had taken up the ” Code ” in more recent times.

However , as much as for fame as for the mistery that lies behind this design , we decided to include it in our first collection dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci .
