The Museum

The Mona Lisa Micro Museum tells the whole story of the most famous theft in the world. The Museum is divided into three parts:                                                          - The official account of the story;            - The voices and stories of Val Veddasca;                                                            - The contemporary art exhibitions.  The exhibition is permanent.

The Mona Lisa THREE...D!

The artist friends of the Ponte degli Artisti and Taxus APS have taken on a new challenge: giving form and substance to Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa by personalizing the works in order to make them unique and unrepeatable.

Stolen Mona Lisa by Vianey

It is with great pleasure that we communicate the international agreement signed by Savi Arbola Appiani, director of the Micro Museum, with the American artist Vianey (founder of the Cool Art New York Movement), which granted the use of the image of his work to create the cover of the book "Il Volo della Gioconda". The work created by Vianey is part of the artist's personal exhibition entitled "Stolen Mona Lisa" which will be inaugurated in Paris on October 2, 2024; the exhibition will leave Paris for a world tour of exhibitions. Together with Vianey, the international version of the book "Il Volo della Gioconda" will be produced in English, French and Spanish. Here is some information about the artist Vianey:
