Casa degli Omenoni – Leonardo’s lost works of art

0
Casa degli Omenoni owes its name to the six atlantes called "Omenoni" ("Strong men") on the façade of the building. The structure was completed in 1565 and it was the house of the sculptor Leone Leoni and his son, Pompeo Leoni. Both father and son were art merchants and collectors who managed to gather a real treasure, for example some drawings by Leonardo da Vinci inherited by his disciple Francesco Melzi, and a few paintings by Tiziano and Correggio. Unfortunately, the collection was lost. Only a few works were found at a later time, such as the Atlantic Codex by Leonardo.
