Horacio Pagani states Leonardo’s art as design inspiration for his cars at Shanghai Museum event

To perpetuate and promote the dialogue between East and West, art and science, and tradition and modernity, the Shanghai Museum hosted an exhibition titled “The Shape of Air: from Leonardo da Vinci to Pagani Utopia” on March 4, 2024. This event saw Horacio Pagani, the founder and chief designer of Pagani Automobili, reveal Leonardo’s Renaissance art was a major artistic inspiration in the birth of his creations whilst also unveiling a new work – a dragon inspired by the Song era (960-1279), painted on the visible carbon hood of Pagani Utopia, created by Yan Xiaojun, a young artist from the Department of Painting and Calligraphy of the Shanghai Museum. This marked the first time in over 70 years of the Museum’s history that an automobile was exhibited in its halls. The exhibition open to the public until April 14, 2024, offers visitors a chance to see the philosophical and design evolution of Pagani’s automotive design.
