Produced in the fifteenth century, in the middle of the Renaissance, this drawing is now kept in the Cabinet of Drawings and Prints of the Galleries of the Venice Academy. Leonardo represents the ideal proportions of the human body, according to the anthropometric canons by Vitruvius. A man is depicted inside two geometric figures: a square and a circle, the two shapes considered perfect by Plato. The two figures are in sharp contrast with each other: the square, symbolizing the earth, if extrapolated from the rest of the elements gives us the idea that man is in a static and immobile position; the circle, symbolic representation of God and the Universe, on the contrary suggests us instability and movement. The dual posture in which the human figure is placed gives the design a kinetic effect and highlights the desire to bring back the earthly element (the square) and the celestial element (the circle) to an ideal harmony. Thanks to his knowledge in anatomy, optics and geometry, Leonardo enriched Vitruvian thought with this design. Although many other artists tried to produce works like this, none of them can be compared to this masterpiece, which remains today the only true icon in terms of correspondence between the human body and geometry. As a tribute to Leonardo, the image of the Vitruvian man he produced was chosen by Carlo Azeglio Ciampi to appear on the 1 euro coin.
