Becas en Italia: prácticas en museo Leonardo da Vinci
The Museum: The National Museum of Science and Technology "Leonardo da Vinci" is one of the most important technical and scientific institutions in Italy.

The Museum preserves, studies and interprets its historical heritage in order to make it accessible to all.
