    This monument of Leonardo da Vinci and his disciples was created by the sculptor Pietro Magni in 1872. Ever since that time it stands at the Piazza della Scala in front of famous opera theater. Although the costumes of Leonardo and his disciples are not very accurate anyway monument itself is beautiful and long ago became one of “must see” places in Milan.

    Statue in the Piazza Scala

    To commemorate a famous person of the country, this has been a landmark in Piazza Scala for years. He had been in Milan for quite some time, and designed/sketched the famous racehorse that later became a statue for all to see. It was intended for Francesco Sforza as an equestrian dedication. It is located by the Museum of Science for technical work of Da Vinci.
