Leonardo at 500: From Mona Lisa to Mars

“Talent hits a target no one else can hit. Genius hits a target no one else can see.”


To mark the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s legacy, Codex will be organising a series of special events for a range of audiences.

To launch the Leonardo at 500 series, Codex was particularly proud to partner with Cognizant for this event, at which we hosted young people specially invited by the Social Mobility Foundation. The aim was to instil in these young people the confidence and the courage to think differently and envision how radically their world of work will evolve during their careers.
