"The Vitruvian Man" by Leonardo da Vinci
Located in the drawings collection of the Accademia Gallery in Venice, Italy, and very rarely put on display, “The Vitruvian Man” is the world’s most famous drawing. Executed by Leonardo da Vinci in the 1490s while he was living in Milan, the drawing is an illustration of the theorem of the ancient Roman architect, Marcus Vitruvius Pollio – better known simply as Vitruvius – of the mathematical perfection of the human body. Today, the drawing has come to symbolize the historical period known as the Renaissance, which once again placed humanity at the center of the universe. Buona visione!
