The essay opens with an analysis of topics such as the image as the first element to be set out onto the page and its influence on the graphic arrangement of the text; the ambiguity between a private study and a study to be published; the dimension of the single page.
It then proceeds towards an analysis of Leonardo's drawing as an attempt to visu- alize in a perfect way a text by Vitruvius and the conception of the visu- al language as a philological instrument. He therefore went on also to describe the proportions for the perfect form of the human body. In particular, he described the link between the body as a whole and the two perfect geometrical forms: the circle and the square.
Vitruvius then proceeded to discuss the proportions of the parts of the body in terms of fractions of the whole. For example: "the head from the chin to the crown is an eight part of the human body,"- and so on. In the drawing by Leonardo, we can see these very principles illustrated. There is the connection of the human figure to the circle and the square. Inside the human figure, there is even a pattern of lines which indicate measurements and connections between the different parts of the body. In particular, the Among the more recent and significant studies see ZoUner "L'uomo vitruviano" and Sinisgalli "La sezione aurea.
In my view, both studies underestimate the main subject of Leonardo's study: the human body and its proportions. See also the fundamen- tal synthesis by Zollner Vitruvs Proportionsfigur. Vitruvius, De architectura. Ij icI i i. Sloaiif 52J , f. By kind permission of the British Library human figure presents one single head and one single trunk, but contains multiple arms and legs in alternative positions. The position with joined legs and horizontal arms refers to the square. The position with open or outstretched legs and raised up arms refers to the circle.
Before analyzing the meaning and the content of this study, let us first try to focus in on its nature. One aspect to point out is that the drawing was the first element to be set out onto the page, and it was only later that the text was added. We can see this by the fact that the last two lines of the text, at the top of the page, are interrupted by the form of the circle and continue after it, seemingly following its contour.
This is not an insignificant point. The first editions of Vitruvius's treatise published by some humanists were without images, and even when these editions included illustrations, they were set out at the end, or in the margins of the text, as if they were an appendix. Sloane , f 2; fig. In Leonardo's version, on the contrary, the relation is just the opposite: the figure is the central piece, with the text serving it like a complimentary element.
Leonardo's text quotes a famous passage by Vitruvius, with some orig- inal variations see the Appendix. Therefore, it develops a continuous and unitary discourse. Nevertheless, Leonardo has broken it up into three units fig. A first passage at the top ends with the beginning of the drawing, branching out symmetrically, to the right and left of it. This isolated line is finally followed by a last and long passage at the bottom of the page. This graphic arrangement is not accidental. P I N i-lj. Vienna, Oesterreichische Nationalbibliotek, ms.

At the same time, the content of the isolated line of text, positioned immediately underneath the drawing, deals with the link between the human body and the square and, from a graphic point of view, is visually linked to the posi- tion of the closed legs related to the square. Therefore, the content of the text affects its graphic arrangement, a form of communication already put to use during the Middle Ages, for example in the so-called carmina figu- rata.
A private study or a study to be published? Apart from these subtle associations, by cutting and setting out the text into three units Leonardo has achieved an end result of text and figure that is graphically refined. Both for this reason, and for the minute attention given to the drawing itself, we could say that he was thinking about publishing his study. It has even been speculated that this sheet was originally an illustra- tion, or even the frontispiece, for a treatise on architecture, or for his trea- tise on painting, and that it was subsequently destined to be printed.
There are some problems, however, with this hypothesis. The hand- writing used by Leonardo is from right to left:. It was not easy to read even for Leonardo's contemporaries as attested by various ancient sources , and it does not seem to support this hypothesis. We know that Leonardo did write left to right when he was preparing studies to be shown to other peo- ple. For example this occurs in the maps of the river Arno done for the Florentine government, where there are notes written in the standard man- ner, from left to right.
Even if Leonardo sometimes claimed that he wanted to publish some of his works, the main dimension and domain of his work remained that of private study. The tendency at that time to write diaries and to note the more or less significant events of private and public life is well known. Antonio da Vinci, heir to a family of notaries and Leonardo's grandfather, kept a diary of this kind. In a certain sense, we can add Leonardo's notes and drawings to this same domain.
But instead of a simple chronicle of events that mark the times, and an ordi- nary private diary, Leonardo's are the noted observations and thoughts of a genial artist and scientist. Sometimes, as is the case in this drawing, these daily notes achieve forms of great power and beauty. One needs only read the notes that accompany his drawings to realize that Leonardo almost always regarded his magnificent portrayals as nothing more than tempo- rary stages towards a final work to be achieved at a later time.
In every field of his scientific work it is very seldom that an argument is devel- oped over more than one sheet. In science this form of communication has precise historical roots. These types of documents have been stud- ied for their practical use: for example, there were fugitive sheets that dealt with medicine and illustrated simple notions of anatomy and medical pro- cedure for untrained surgeons or amateurs.
Learned scholars and scientists, however, also used this kind of communication for the publication of knowledge in academic contexts. In the medical manuscripts of medieval Scholastics tables and diagrams there were often completely self-sufficient units of figures and notes. Even if they summarized the content of a trea- tise or a manuscript, they often were of a different size from the other sheets of the manuscript, with different kinds of paper or parchment for example, almost as if they would have been intended to circulate indepen- dently from the manuscript.
In the Renaissance, the famous Tabulae sex published in Venice in by the great anatomist Andreas Vesalius, and conceived for the academic world were conclusive sheets each unto itself and often circulated independently from one another. Leonardo's Vitruvian man can also be put into this type of scientific communication category based on the single sheet.
Even if it was originally part of a wider, treatise, this treatise was made up of other tables and diagrams, each with figures and notes, like an atlas of the human body. Visualizing Vitruvius: philology and images Until now I have tried to set out the more concrete dimension of this study by Leonardo, and I have pointed out the following elements: the primacy of the drawing to the text, the nature of private study, and the nature of the single sheet. Let us now consider its content, its actual intellectual importance, and its value.
The drawing illustrates, as I have already mentioned, a famous theory by the ancient Roman architect Vitruvius. Florence, Biblioteca Laurenziana, ms. Ashburnham , f. Any farther reproduction by any means is strictly forbid- den. Turin, Biblioteca Reale, ms. Saluzziano , f 6v. As a con- sequence, the text needed exhausting philological work. In i Sulpicio de' Veroli published the first printed edition of the Vitruvian treatise, not without hinting at the difficulties of reconstruction and inter- pretation.
Both Alberti and Sulpicio were humanists and their treatises were without figures. Their interpretation of Vitruvius was represented by a purely textual question: it regarded only Vitruvius's words and was achieved by means of words. Afterwards, however, something changed. At a certain point in time, several artists who were also engineers joined in the effort to clarify the Vitruvian text.
The artist and engineer Francesco di Giorgio Martini Siena, , in the second version of his treatise on architecture c. He basically said that for a lack of images, with the simple read- ing of the text, every reader imagines in his own way an architecture, a machine, or a theory by Vitruvius: "there are as many readers as inter- preters,"'o he wrote. According to Francesco, only drawing — together with the archaeological inspection of ancient remains — can fix the actual sense of the ancient text and avoid the Babel of interpretation.
In short, the image is presented as an instrument of humanistic philology and the artist presents himself as a protagonist in the rediscovery of the classical world, on the same level as the humanist. In his treatise Francesco quotes Vitruvius and often accompanies these quotations with images that clarify and compliment the sense of the quoted passages. Leonardo's drawing c. Among the various problems with the Vitruvian text facing Francesco di Giorgio Martini and Leonardo was the famous theory concerning the proportions of the human body.
Francesco deals with this theory in the first version of his Treatise c. Francesco di Giorgio Martini, Trattati di architettura, For the date see below. This prescription could be interpreted and represented in various ways. One possibility was to draw two separate images, one representing the connection between the human body and circle, the other to link the human body with the square.
Durer chose this possibility in the sheet already examined fig. We also find two separate images in the printed edition of Vitruvius published by the archi- tect and mathematician Fra Giocondo in Venice in with the presses of Giovanni Tacuino da Tridino. There was, however, another, more radical and more correct, possibil- ity to express this double link: to represent in one single image both the bond with the circle and the one with the square, representing also the motives of this double association.
It was this option that Leonardo chose for his drawing. As we have already seen, Leonardo represents two differ- ent positions within the same human figure, one related to the circle, the other to the square. These two different arrangements are strongly inter- woven between themselves, and not merely because they coexist in the same figure. We can see, in fact, that in the square-related position the joined legs touch not only the square but also the circle; and vice versa, in the circle-related position with the limbs outstretched, the hands at the top touch not only the circle, but also the square.
This more complex illustration of the Vitruvian theory appears, even if in a poorer version, in two drawings inserted in two copies of the first version of the Treatise on architecture by Francesco di Giorgio Martini figs. In one case, head and feet touch the circle and square, the hands only the square. In the other case, with more respect for Vitruvius's text, one arm is lowered while the other is slightly raised in order to link both geometrical figures. In spite of this arrangement, both drawings dis- tance themselves from the Vitruvius text on various points.
For example, Vitruvius describes the head only in connection with the square, whereas in these two drawings the head touches both the square and the circle. Ill see Appendix. Ashburnham , f 5r and Turin, Biblioteca Reale, ms. It would have been sufficient, in a more customary way, to draw two separate representations of the human figure, one related to the circle, the other to the square.
So why, on the contrary, did he try to embody a unitary representation, and in such a poor a way? The composition of the first version of Francesco di Giorgio Martini's Treatise and the two copies with the quoted drawings are generally dated by scholars no later than Francesco remained fascinated by this new interpretation and tried to apply it to the drawings we have just exam- ined. If Francesco's drawing was done, instead, before i, we can assume that Leonardo knew it or its idea in Pavia in We must therefore clarify what was so innovative about Leonardo's interpretation.
First of all, there was a radical and drastic philological effort that, in going even further than the usual level of interpretation applied to an ancient source, proposed a new and powerful vision. Harmony and simultaneity: the Paragone among images, music and verbal language Leonardo not only tried to respect the literal words of Vitruvius' prescrip- tions, but above all understood their deep and inner meaning, their essence: the conception of harmony. See also Scaglia, "Book review. I'' In the Vitruvian man Leonardo realized a harmonic represen- tation. The geometric figures illustrated are two circle and square , but they also coexist forming a unitary whole.
And this is even more true for the human figure. This figure presents two different and alternate positions of arms and legs. Yet, this multiplicity of positions does not break the unity of the figure. Various and alternate configurations are coordinated in order to create a perfectly unitary whole; a whole that is various and unique at the same time. That is, a harmonic whole.
While describing the link of the human figure with the circle and the square Vitruvius emphasizes their coexistence. In fact, after having hinted at the link between the human body and the circle he writes: "And just as the human body yields a circular outline, so too a square figure may be found from it. Even if not explicitly written, this double connection of the human body with two different geometric figures is yet another example of the application of harmony and proportion, concepts with which, as we have seen before, Vitruvius opens up the chapter.
However, Vitruvius explains this double link of the body with the cir- cle and square by mentioning it in separate parts, in two linked but differ- ent passages. This could not be otherwise. A verbal text can proceed only in this way, by describing first one thing and then the other. However, in doing so the same essence of the concept is lost: the simultaneity of the double link, or the reason of its harmonic meaning.
This is the reason why Leonardo undertook such an arduous task of radical philology.
According to Leonardo, only an image could communicate the harmonic concept inherent in the Vitruvian text. Or, better still, the image by which Leonardo illustrates this concept was more appropriate than the Vitruvian text itself Only the visual language of images is able to represent and to explain simultaneously the two different and co-existent connections with the circle and the square.
Only visual language, contrary to verbal lan- guage, can illustrate, with impressive simultaneity, the variety and unity of this harmonic link. In the so called Paragone, a theoretical text written around that is, at the same time of the Vitruvian man , Leonardo stated the primacy of painting over the other arts. By exemplifying the rep- resentation of a face, Leonardo writes: "Yet the beautiful proportions of an angelic face in a painting will do much 'more than a chord.
In fact, Leonardo writes that: Now a poem, which extends to the figuration of this designated beauty by the particular figuration of each part [ It is as if we would want to show a face part by part, always covering up the part which was shown before. Vitruvius's words are therefore unable to express the harmony of this connection. Leonardo was able to grasp the deepest sense of the theory of Vitruvius and expressed it in the only suitable language: the visual language of the drawing.
At the very moment when Leonardo tries to respect the essence of that text, he inevitably puts it under intense criticism: Vitruvius was wrong because he tried to illustrate concepts by words only, concepts that the image alone is capable of communicating. Only the image can, in fact, achieve a synchronous representation of multiple things or events. And it is this simultaneity that is at the basis of a harmonic whole. Leonardo da Vinci, Leonardo da Vinci's Paragone chapt. Through this absolute trust in the image Leonardo carried out a radical act of philology.
Vitruvitis did not invent the harmonic and proportional the- ories of the human body, but passed on ideas born centuries earlier in Greece. According to the Roman anatomist Galen, the sculptor Polycletus had elaborated the Canon, a complex theory concerning the harmonic and proportional connections among the different parts of the body. The Canon W2is not just a written text, but also a statue that illustrated this text. According to the ancient sources, the two component parts of the Canon, the text and the statue, had the same name the Canon and were strictly linked to one another.
In an age in which book illustrations did not yet exist, the statue was the illustration of the treatise. Some scholars argue that the statue known as the Dorvphoros — which has survived only in Roman copies — might correspond to this lost Canon. The Canon by Polycletus that, directly or indirectly, influenced Vitruvius, was therefore not only a written text, but a written text directly linked with a statue, with an image, with visual language. Even if shortly before the passage on the body's proportion Vitruvius generically mentions the exis- tence of Polycletus and other Greek sculptors, almost certainly Leonardo was not aware of all of this.
Nevertheless, by opposing his drawing to the text of Vitruvius, he shows that he has grasped the historical origin of the ancient Greek theory handed down by Vitruvius. Besides the classical sources: qualitative conceptions, anatomy, scientific ambitions. The study of classical sources in Leonardo and other Italian artists from the same age is not limited to this radical elucidation, but also represents the starting point towards a new age of discovery.
As we have seen, Leonardo succeeds in representing, in the same image, two different geometric links to the human figure by depicting two different positions for his limbs: the man has joined legs and horizontally spread arms in connection with the square, and open legs and raised-up arms in connection with the circle. The figure seems to move from one position to the other with movement, almost cinematographically.
In the art of ancient Greece, harmony was born together with realism and the representation of move- ment: harmony implies variety, and movement arouses, or generates, this variety. For example, in the Dor 'phoros by Polycletus, the slight putting forward of the left leg corresponds to the lowering of the right shoulder and — 49 — Domenico Laurenza so on. This slight complimentary association, which gives harmony to the figure, arises fi-om the movement of the body.
Therefore, movement is not a concept opposite to harmony, but can become so if pushed to extreme measures. And this is just what Leonardo did. Previously, Leonardo had tried to discover and to resolve, by means of geometry, the ways in which the proportions of the human body vary dur- ing the body's movements. By developing the dynamic arrangement of the Vitruvian man he made kinetic studies such as the ones known through sixteenth-century copies from lost originals by Leonardo Codex Huygens, New York, Morgan Library.
In these drawings we can see not only the har- monic arrangement of the Vitruvian man the fact that different positions are linked to one single human figure , but above all the dynamic implica- tions of that drawing. This led Leonardo, in later periods of his life, to be fundamentally sceptical about the possibility of fixing and identifying exact and mathematical laws in nature. From an artistic point of view this vision will contribute to define the famous sfumato smoke-screened in Leonardo's painting and, there- after, several fundamental aspects in the art and painting of the sixteenth- century.
Likewise, from a scientific point of view, this same vision opens towards some important developments in modern scientific thought, such as the atomistic theories of the sixteenth-century and the cosmological conception by Giordano Bruno, all characterized by a physical and fluid vision, not by a mathematical approach. Another example of how Leonardo goes beyond his ancient source js the fact that he applied the study of proportions to anatomy.
To understand this aspect we need to return to the Vitruvian man. In this drawing Leonardo studies not only the link between the body in its entirety to the circle and the square, but also some inner measures and connections among different parts of the body. For example, the face is divided into three equal parts: the forehead, the nose and the space between the nose and chin.
These three parts are assumed to be equal among themselves and each is assumed to be one third the length of the entire face. However, even in this case he goes far beyond what Vitruvius had written.

The dcUive of this declension, however, is very rare. It is formed by putting a or ad before the partitive ar- ticles del, ddla, dello, delV; pi.
The genitive case of this declension is of frequent occurrence and very simple. Here the article is entirely omitted, di taking its place before the substantive, as: Nom. The Plur. Un hicchiere d'acqua, a glass of water. Dieci libhre di came, ten pounds of meat. Una quantitd di zucchero, a great deal of sugar. English compound substantives are often rendered by this genitive, as: n maestro di scuola, the school-master.
II mercante di vino, the wine-merchant. Una tavola di legno, a wooden table. This genitive is also governed by some adverbs of quantity as: niente, nothing; qualche cosa, something etc,, as: Niente di huono, nothing good.

The pupU would be entirely wrong in saying: poco di birra, little beer, poco being in such a case considered as an adjective.
But he may say: un poco di birra, because here un poco is considered as a substantive. The usual manner of rendering such expressions does not differ from the English. Vanello, the ring. Voroldgio, m, the watch. Mdt;e, nine; dUci, ten. See Part. II: the Adjective.

De' nomi alterati. The Italian language abounds in terminaUans that serve to augment or diminish the original idea of a word. Thus, for instance, avaro means: a miser; avarone a covetous, scraping fellow, and avaraccio an old, clutch- ing sinner, Un giovane means a youth; un giovanoitOy a smart young man.
The diminutive terminations afford a still greater variety of modifications. A word already diminished may, by the addition of other diminutive syllables, express the most singular gradations of the original signification. Thus lihro means book, libretto a little book, also the test or words of an opera; liliretthlo, a nice little book; Ubrii'cino, a dear little book; libruceio, a nasty little book. Librettuccio, libricciuolo, libreiticciuolo cannot be rendered exactly in English. These terminations express strength, bigness and Dreatness. For example: contadina countrywoman , contadinotta a strong c.
