THE ITINERARY

The ITINERARY, reticulated and partly linear, will trace the main steps of Leonardo’s LIFE and the location of his WORKS and, later on, of the Leonardismi; it will also convey the relevance of Leonardo for today’s world, thus enabling the systemic enhancement of all the areas concerned, especially those less known.

The main steps are highlighted in two specially realized maps: in addition to Italy and France, the countries involved are Austria, England, Germany, Hungary, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Scotland, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Vatican City; and also the USA.

In order to create the European Association, we have been already developing contacts with countries where Leonardo spent long time but it is our intention to involve all European States.

After defining the Itinerary in its ESSENTIAL CONTENTS (EUROPEAN TOPIC AND MAIN TAPES), that were already highlighted at the Forum of VILNIUS Lithuania 26-27.10.2016, the next step was characterized by the following ACTIVITIES:

1.INVOLVEMENT OF THE LOCAL POPULATION, ASSOCIATIONS AND LOCAL AUTHORITIES

2.SHARING OF THE PROJECT WITH OTHER LOCAL AND REGIONAL AUTHORITIES THROUGHOUT ITALY

3.COMPARISON WITH OTHER CULTURAL ROUTES OF THE COUNCIL OF EUROPE

4.RESEARCH FOR AN AGREEMENT ON THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE EUROPEAN NETWORK ASSOCIATION composed of at least three states, giving priority to three of the countries where Leonardo lived and which he visited: besides ITALY (Vinci), FRANCE (Amboise, Château du Clos Lucé) and SLOVENIA (Vipava), to define STATUTE, VISIBILITY AND COMMON ACTIONS (research and development, European memory and heritage, cultural exchanges for young people, contemporary creativity, cultural tourism and sustainable development) in accordance with the Resolution CM / Res ( 2013) 67 for the purposes of the final Certification.
