The exhibition presents historical, interactive models that reconstruct Archimedes’ inventions and technologies, made after studying important texts of the time: Archimedes’ Palimpsest, Taccola’s Codex, Vitruvius’ treatise, Da Vinci’s codexes and Galileo Galilei’s treatises.

The models are made of wood, rope, iron, etc. and are organised on 4 themes: The Machines of the Ancient World, Energy Machines, The Power of Shapes, and Archimedes’ Legacy. The exhibition includes fascinating interactive objects as well as 3D animations.
