Leonardo Da Vinci - Genius and beauty

At the Service Center, the heart of the Bologna exhibition center, there will be an exclusive exhibition dedicated to the innovations brought by the genius of Leonardo da Vinci in the cosmetic field.

The installation was born from the collaboration between Cosmoprof, Cosmetica Italia – Personal Care Association, and Accademia del Profumo, on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the artist's death.

On display will be a selection of reproductions of the codes with the studies of Leonardo da Vinci on the most advanced extraction techniques- still used today in the fragrance sector- on the most suitable plants and flowers for hair coloring, and on the most original hairstyles recommended for Renaissance ladies and visible in many of his paintings.
