- ABSTRACT: Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) is perhaps overrated for his contributions to physical science, since his technical approach. Nevertheless important components concerning practical problems of mechanics with great technical ability were abounded. He brought alive again the Nemorarius’ (fl. 12th - 13th century) tradition and his speculations on mechanics, if immature made known how difficult and elusive were the conceptual streams of the foundations of science for practitioners-artisans. Leonardo also had an interesting and intense relationship with mathematics but merely unhappy insights in his time. The meeting with Luca Bartolomeo de Pacioli (1445-1517) was very important for da Vinci since proposing stimulating speculations were implemented, but they were not definitive theoretical results. In this paper historical reflections notes on mechanics and mathematics in da Vinci and his relationships with Pacioli are presented.
