ZANNETTI Art Collection – The Vitruvian Man

Italian luxury watch maker Zannetti enhances its Art collection by launching a new mechanical watch inspired from Leonardo da Vinci’s famous drawing The Vitruvian Man. This luxurious stainless steel timepiece, equipped with a high-quality and highly precise Swiss-made movement, is available in various enamel dial versions.

The Vitruvian Man (Le proporzioni del corpo umano secondo Vitruvio) is a drawing created by Leonardo da Vinci circa 1490. It is accompanied by notes based on the work of the architect Vitruvius. 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 Proportionsor, less often, Proportions of Man. It is kept in the Gabinetto dei disegni e stampe of the Gallerie dell’Accademia, in Venice, Italy, under reference 228. Like most works on paper, it is displayed to the public only occasionally. The drawing is based on the correlations of ideal human proportions with geometry described by the ancient Roman architect Vitruviusin Book III of his treatise De Architectura.
