Franco Rocco’s “La Via Geometrica” – Da Scaccomatto agli Scacchi di Leonardo Da Vinci
Leonardo da Vinci and the game of chess are the themes of Franco Rocco’s exhibition, organized to coincide with the republication of his book “Leonardo e Luca Pacioli. L’evidenza”. An architect and expert on chess pieces, Franco Rocco analyzed the manuscript written by mathematician and the ‘father of accounting’ Fra’ Luca Pacioli, De Ludo Scachorum (1497-1508), in which Leonardo’s contribution to the evolution of this famous game appears to be evident. The study’s results are collected in a video section on show at the PWC exhibition space in Milan along with drawings and sculptures by the author. At our microphone is Franco Rocco.
