The Debrecen exhibition is promoted by the Institute and Museum of the History of Science in Florence, in collaboration with MODEM–Debrecen Museum of Modern Art and the Municipality of Debrecen.

The Debrecen show displays the sections III to VI of the original exhibition, integrated with a new section devoted to Leonardo’s studies on horses and the extraordinary life-size reconstruction of the Sforza Horse, a gigantic equestrian monument over 7 metres high, both purposely conceived for the Hungarian public.
