Leonardo da Vinci’s Codex Atlanticus can be found in the Ambrosiana Library of Milan.

The Ambrosiana Library is one of the world’s oldest public libraries and it is also a picture gallery with a great collection that includes Titian, Luini, Botticelli, Bramantino.

The Codex contains a lot of drawings and writings by Leonardo da Vinci and it is called Atlanticus because it was created on sheets that were used for making atlases!
