AMMAN — A lecture on Leonardo da Vinci and water will be held at the Jordan Museum on Monday by professor of History of Settlements and Dwelling Systems at the University of Florence, Andrea Vanni-Desideri.

The lecture, which will start at 5:00pm, will focus on the various experiences, studies and projects that da Vinci dedicated to water throughout his life, according to a statement by the Italian embassy e-mailed to The Jordan Times on Sunday.

Among them is the role of water as an element of the landscape, starting with the drawing by 20-year-old da Vinci in 1473 considered as the first landscape of European art history.

The lecture will present an overview of the different interpretations given by the scholar to water as mechanical power, river waters as communication routes and also water as a weapon, among others, according to the statement.
