At the end of the fifteenth century, Leonardo da Vinci spent eighteen years in Milan – a period that would leave a lasting impression on the city.
In Spring 2015, Milan paid tribute to Leonardo by holding a large exhibition at the Palazzo Reale. Based on this stunning exhibition, Leonardo da Vinci – The Genius in Milan uses a combination of documentary interviews and mise-en-scènes to tell the story of the artist’s world and the treasures he left us, against the stunning backdrop of Leonardo’s Milan.
Drawing upon Leonardo’s legendary work as an artist, architect and scientist, audiences will be immersed in the story of Leonardo the man, in the context of what was a truly legendary period in the city’s history, and for the history of art.

‘Florence and the Uffizi Gallery 3D/4K: a journey into the heart of the Renaissance’ is much more than a classic Art documentary: it’s a multi-dimensional, multi-sensory journey into the Italian Renaissance through the most beautiful, representative works of art of the period.
For the first time in cinema theaters worldwide comes an art film on the veritable open-air museum that is the city of Florence in which 3D technology ensures a totally immersive, unprecedented viewing experience: works of art speak for themselves with all the power of their extraordinary beauty enhanced by 3D vision.
A stimulating “emotional” commentary is given by a major, leading Renaissance figure, our guide Lorenzo the Magnificent, played by Simon Merrells. From a timeless limbo, he takes us through a tour of “his” Florence, the cradle of Renaissance culture, all to the splendid accompaniment of carefully selected music. Also featured are valuable artistic contributions made by experts such as Antonio Natali, the Director of the Uffizi Gallery for almost 10 years; Marco Ciatti, Superintendent of the ‘Opificio delle Pietre Dure’ and Arturo Galansino, Director of Palazzo Strozzi.
Not only does this Art Film promise a unique 3D/4K viewing experience but it also offers an emotionally moving and engaging narrative.

The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg is one of the largest and oldest museums in the world holding over 3 million treasures and boasting more curators than any other art institution. To mark the momentous occasion of its 250th anniversary the museum opened its doors for the filming of Hermitage Revealed – a cinematic event that is a must-see for all fans of art, architecture and the culture and history of Russia.

The production brings together the oldest, the rarest, the most precious and the most closely guarded of Russia’s greatest treasures; items bought with great wealth or acquired by other means, items hoarded and saved from violent revolutionaries, items thought lost and later re-found – all works and their unique stories presented with an intimacy and immediacy that no museum or gallery experience can match.
From Rembrandt to Russian masterpieces, from prehistoric artefacts to the private gemstone collection of Catherine The Great, from Michelangelo to Matisse and much, much more, the exquisite treasures the Hermitage has to offer are seemingly endless.

Director of the Vatican Museums, Professor Antonio Paolucci, expertly leads us through the past, present and future of the Vatican Museums.
