About the Film:

Directed by Francesco Invernizzi. Italy. 2019. Italian with English subtitles.

In celebration of the 500th Anniversary of Leonardo Da Vinci’s passing, and in partnership with the Friends of Italy Society of Hawaii, the museum is proud to present Leonardo Cinquecento, an engaging film that portrays Leonardo’s genius through an exclusive, original perspective, focusing on the contemporary implications of the famous Da Vinci codes. A series of interviews with the most distinguished historical experts, businessmen and institution leaders, will investigate how Leonardo’s innovative study methods still influence today’s scientific research. What exciting new paths is science opening up and how? Which market strategies will successfully put these models into practice? The film immerses the viewers in a new Rinascimento, in which science and economy are interconnected through the choices of Corporate Social Responsibility.
