The exhibition continues throughout town thanks to the guided routes following Torriani's footsteps in 14th century Cremona.
The scientific aspect of the exhibition was born from a close collaboration between the Fundación Juanelo Turriano in Madrid, The Alexandre Koyré (EHESS) Center in Paris, the Max Planck for the History of Science in Berlin, and The Medici Archive Project (U.S.A. – Italia).
