About Cinquecento: Carleton Celebrates Leonardo da Vinci

Cinquecento: Carleton Celebrates Leonardo da Vinci is a year-long celebration that looks at da Vinci’s work with fresh eyes. In Italian, “Cinquecento” means 500 and, for this series of events, refers to the 500 years since his passing. During Cinquecento, Carleton’s faculties come together to explore da Vinci’s interdisciplinary innovations. Cinquecento is a comprehensive look at the life and work of one of history’s most fascinating people.
