The result of the live painting is a permanent open-air exhibition. From the deconstructed writing of the Milanese 2501 to the reflection on progress through the geometric shapes of the Dutchman Zedz, other artists instead let themselves be inspired – on the occasion of the fifth centenary of his death – by Leonardo da Vinci.
