Leonardo da Vinci’s Fresco ‘The Battle of Anghiari’ – Walls of Palazzo Vecchio, Sala dei Cinquecento

Palazzo Vecchio

With new technological opportunities now in existence there is a project underway to examine the original layers of the east wall to see if any remains of Leonardo’s fresco from the early 1500s can be detected. The National Geographic Society is currently documenting the search.

Friends of Florence has already funded a portion of this project and the cost of the additional work is yet to be determined.
