The Buckingham Palace Royal Collection puts its Renaissance jewels at the disposal of all internet users.
Several anatomical drawings by Leonardo Da Vinci, which until recently were exclusively reserved for the eyes of those who visit Buckingham’s Palace, have been carefully digitized and made available to all those who have access not to the Palace, but to the internet.
