Leonardo. The Vitruvian Man between art and science

Leonardo. The Vitruvian Man between art and scienceSeven years have passed since the Vitruvian Man of Leonardo was displayed the last time and from 10 October 2009 through 10 January 2010, tourists and citizens alike will have a unique occasion to see Leonardo's most famopus drawing in the Accademia Gallery where it is stored.


The Vitruvian Man is a world-renowned drawing created by Leonardo da Vinci in Milan around the year 1490. It is accompanied by notes based on the work of the famed architect, Vitruvius Pollio.

The drawing, which is in pen and ink on paper, depicts a male figure in two superimposed positions with his arms and legs apart and simultaneously inscribed in a circle and square. The drawing and text are sometimes called the Canon of Proportions or, less often, Proportions of Man. It is stored in the Gallerie dell'Accademia in Venice since 1822, and, like most works on paper, is displayed only occasionally.
