    TUNIS - A painting show of Corrado Veneziano to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the death of Tuscan genius Leonardo da Vinci will exhibit the 'Atlantic Code', the largest collection of drawings and writings by Da Vinci.
    The show will open for the first time outside Europe, at the Italian Cultural Institute in Tunis. It was inaugurated in Amboise (under the high patronage of the president of the French republic and with the support of the Louvre Museum), and then moved to Florence's Astrophysical Observatory, on behalf of the city of Florence and Matera, the Italian capital of culture in 2019, at the national museum.
    'Leonardo Atlantico' includes 30 artworks (all oil paintings) that mix together sentences (written from right to left, according to Leonardo's habit) over a series of images designed by Leonardo in his famous 'Atlantic Code'.
    Words and designs have been taken from the pages of Leonardo to create a modern universe, a spiritually poetic sky. The drawings are inspired by wheels, wings, arches and artillery cannons as well as personal notes and math operations. They are abstract and fascinating objects over Corrado Veneziano's blue background.
    The show, sponsored by the Italian language school Leonardo da Vinci (Rome-Milan-Florence-Siena) will be inaugurated on October 10 and will remain open to the public until November 10.
