V Centenary of the Great Genius – The Inscription of Giorgio Vasari

 
 
 
 

The central figure of this second low relief is the profile of Leonardo, surrounded by a phrase hand-engraved by the artist Maurizio Carnevali: it is a dedication addressed to Leonardo by Giorgio Vasari, another great artist of the Italian Renaissance.
The dedication reads: “With his liberality he gathered and grazed every poor and rich friend, even though he had talent and virtue. He, with the splendor of his air, which was so beautiful, cheered up every sad soul.“

The latter is surrounded by six engravings that recall 6 of the most important works of Leonardo da Vinci: in order from the left, the Vitruvian Man, the Great Nibbio, the Bronze Equestrian Monument, the revolutionary inventions in the field of war engineering, the Cenacle and its activity defined as “darker”, namely anatomy.
