Since 1997, he has been in charge of the exhibitions at Palazzo Reale in Milan for which he has personally supervised some exhibitions. In the course of his career he has devoted his studies to the introspective line of European Art, with many publications, including “Leonardo. Studi di fisiognomica (1991)”.
Also Filippo del Corno, Councillor for Culture on the Milano town council, Daniela Mainini, President of Centro Studi Grande Milano and Domenico Piraina, Director of Palazzo Reale will take part to the conference.

Elettrotec has acquired Leonardo’s interpretation of life, translating it into the design and construction of our products, with creativity, professionalism and passion”.
