The most recent contributions on Vitruvian Man, always subject of continuous studies and research, derive from studies of Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan (2010-2011). These studies are collected in the book Approfondimenti sull'uomo Vitruviano di Leonardo da Vinci by Paola Salvi, deputy Director of Accademia delle Belle Arti di Brera and professor of anatomy.In these contributions, all written by scholars of Leonardo, many aspects have been investigated, for example the harmonic values and proportion of this figure, the construction of the design and its derivations by Vitruvius and by Leon Battista Alberti. The theme of harmony (including music) and the constant dialogue between the human body and the space which it defines, measures and lives, naturally made the Vitruvian Man of Leonardo object of reflection and artistic inspiration. In this book appear some of the most significant `exempla' that emerge in the work of artists from different backgrounds, including some exponents of our contemporary art.
