The first exhibition featured artworks of his orginial manuscripts, paintings, drawings and mechanic devices. The exhibition was titled "Leonardo Da Vinci Expo: A Genius in Istanbul" after Da Vinci's meeting with Ottoman Sultan Bayezid II in Istanbul in the 16th century where he was asked to draw a bridge which would connect the two sides of the Golden Horn. The drawing was to be shown to the sultan, it was then found years later in archives.
The exhibition was first held in Belgium, then went onto Istanbul and then followed by Izmir.
The exhibition opened 21st June and will end 1st September.
