The theoretical work of one of the most brilliant personalities in the entire history of art.
[Leonardo architect]. The original study by Carlo Pedretti on the architectural work of Leonardo da Vinci reconstructs its subject matter through analysis of writings and drawings. The author addresses a non-specialized audience, facilitating access to a very complex topic through the language of imagery – Leonardo’s language par excellence – producing a work with an approach resembling that of a documentary film.
The text offers a wealth of precise information, observations, unpublished materials organized in interesting sequences, where typographical architecture is the essential component of the discussion. Leonardo the architect is seen not from the viewpoint of the historians, but from that of living, working artists and architects, whose work on the edge of inventive processes can still find a starting point in the thought and fantasy of Leonardo.
