Among the numerous paintings featured in the exhibition, the presence of Head of a Woman, a work of art by Leonardo da Vinci known under the name de The Scapiliata, which from the 6 July is on display.

With this work, Leonardo has highlighted all his great passion for female heads, especially if they have a thick foliage and moved by the wind. There Scapiliata was made on a small wooden board and uses the umber technique. Even today it is not known whether the painting has been completed or whether it is a simple draft. His fame is due to the citations of various painters, among which it should be noted Bernardino Luini.

Next to Leonardo's work there is a digital copy of Herodias carries the head of Saint John the Baptist in Salome, completed by Luini himself. The initiative was made possible thanks to Save the Artistic Heritage, non-profit association created to enhance the Italian artistic heritage in the world. Furthermore, it celebrates a year of celebrations for the 500 years since the death of Leonardo.
