The Man of Vinci by Mario Ceroli, donated to Leonardo's hometown in 1987, is a version of the original work created by the artist twenty years earlier, in 1967, entitled 'Unbalance'. Ceroli's work interprets Leonardo's famous version of the Vitruvian Man, the image par excellence of the harmony inherent in the balance of proportions. The large wooden sculpture represents the all-round Vitruvian man inscribed in the square and in the circle that in three dimensions become a cube and a sphere. The voluntary lack of adherence to the Leonardo model of the Man of Vinci by Mario Ceroli - hence the original title Unbalance - wants to suggest a reflection on contemporary reality, far from the harmony and balance of the forms of Leonardo's Vitruvian Man.
