In 1975 the international “Leonardo da Vinci” prize was initiated and founded by the Florence Rotary Club together with the collaboration and support of Tours, Athens and Wien-Ring Rotary Clubs. In the following years, the following European Clubs joined the initiative as well:

  • 1983 Brussels, Rotary Club/Belgium

  • 1984 Wuerzburg Rotary Club/Germany
  • 1989 Amsterdam Rotary Club/Netherlands

As described in the rules, with this initiative we intend to award a prize to young researchers who distinguish themselves in any field of activity. The title of the prize “Leonardo da Vinci” -, whose genius covered every branch of human knowledge, confirms the precise intention of the promoting clubs to open this prize up to any discipline in art and science.


Art. 1 The institution aims to draw the attention to the
opinion to young men of great talent who distinguish themselves in any field of human activity.
