After more of 5 years of #restoration reopens the Sala delle Asse in the #Sforza Castle. The largest painting ever made by #LeonardodaVinci is back. This amazing work of art shows the passion for nature and landscape of the Tuscan master. #thread 1) milanoarte.net/en/portfolio/m…
@TheBlogArtPost @Svagaia @secolourbano @viaggevolmente @turismomilano @LombardiaSforza @StPallavicino @visit_milano @FondaPoliMi @VentoPolimi Portions of the original preparatory drawing made by #DaVinci have been revealed for the very first time. Here a beautiful landscape that can be easily recognized as #Lombardy landscape. Notice the bell tower with the spire, so typical of Lombard architecture of the 1400s. 2)

This show you the passion of #DaVinci for the landscape of our region, dominated by forests, low hills at the footsteps of the #Alps and elegant gothic churches. 3) milanoarte.net/en/portfolio/t…

A thread: I am SO HAPPY to announce that our paper on #Restoration and Recovery of Earth's Damaged Ecosystems is out in @royalsociety Proceedings B! rspb.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/285/18… We are in the process of making it #openaccess but HMU if you want a PDF.

I am extremely proud of this work. I have been building a database of studies that look at restoration/recovery for nearly 10 YEARS now. And I got to work with amazing co-authors @josemreybenayas @KDHoll5 @iheartnitrogen and other non-tweeps.
