Welcome to the Museo della Battaglia e di Anghiari website




The notoriety of this medieval village is connected to a battle depicted by Leonardo da Vinci.

The battle took place just under the walls of the town on June 29, 1440 between the Visconti Lords of Milan and the Florentine Republic. 


Who won? What is the history of Leonardo's work?


The answers can be found in Piazza Mameli, the ancient Borghetto, where the Renaissance of this Tuscan town flourished. Inside the sixteenth-century Palazzo del Marzocco, the Museo della Battaglia e di Anghiari preserves and enhances the testimonies of the historical and artistic event, including a rare seventeenth-century work by the Flemish Gérard Edelinck, one of the most important copies of the late Leonardesque original, depicting the battle of the standard.

Complementing the classic exhibition, in the museum there is an exclusive digital documentation system with which all the drawings and paintings derived from Leonardo's work can be examined in detail.


Inside the museum there are also collections of objects and documents useful for reconstructing the history of Anghiari, which allows you to discover, for example, that In the 18th century an important production of firearms began. These weapons are famous thanks to their refined decorations.
