In the museum of Vinci there are large three-dimensional models of Leonardo's projects for flying machines, underwater exploration equipment, and other conceptions prophetic of modern technology. Students will also visit several Medici Villas in the vicinity of Florence, including Poggio a Caiano, Castello, Petraia, and Pratolino (now Villa Demidoff).
