Cristian Gálvez (Madrid 1980) is a member of the Leonardo DNA Project, an international project whose aim is to create ideas about the life and work of Leonardo da Vinci through the application of rapid development tools in biology, molecular sciences and anthropology, in close association with the experience of history and the arts. He is also a member of the International Council of Museums (ICOM), the Spanish Association of Museologists and the American Alliance of Museums.
He is one of the faces of Mediaset Spain, where he successfully anchors the cultural contest program Pasapalabra for more than eleven years. Since 2009 he has combined his work in television with the investigation of the great figures of the Renaissance, such as Leonardo da Vinci, which is the main theme of his lectures and his trilogy “Crónicas del Renacimiento” (Chronicles of the Renaissance), published in Penguin Random House.
He is the curator of the Spanish exhibition "Leonardo da Vinci: the faces of the genius" during 2019, to commemorate the fifth centenary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci, a project endorsed by the Italian Embassy, the Istituto Italiano di Cultura, the Montemadrid Foundation, the Leonardo DNA Project, the National Library of Spain, the Comune di Firenze and the Madrid City Council.
His latest literary work, “Leonardo da Vinci: face to face”, has been awarded the Prize for Best Journalistic Work of Scientific Research by the Television Academy of Sciences and Arts.
