In this tour of Renaissance Invention—live from the Newberry's exhibition galleries—curators Lia Markey and Suzanne Karr Schmidt will showcase the cutting-edge tech of 16th-century Europe.
You’ll learn how innovations like the printing press and the mechanical clock altered the course of history.
This new technology was immortalized in the “Nova Reperta,” a set of engravings that went viral in the Renaissance. Today, the “Nova Reperta” is a window into how technological advances crept into people’s lives and changed them forever.
