The new edition of Leonardo by Pietro C. Marani is a valuable volume for those who want to have an overview of part of the work of the Italian genius. Which continues to fascinate not only scholars and art lovers but also make-up artists from all over the world, for whom it is a precious source of inspiration to create balance and proportions of the face using makeup tools.

In fact, together with Piero della Francesca, Bernardino Luini and Sandro Botticelli, he had identified the golden section, or the divine proportion that represents the mystical key to harmony in the arts and sciences.

Published by 24 Ore Cultura last year on the occasion of the celebrations for the 500th anniversary of his death,
the book collects the artist's incredible production, from the Mona Lisa to the Annunciation to the Lady with an Ermine, to the Virgin of the Rocks. Carefully it analyzes his exceptional creations and establishes a precise relationship between his paintings, characterized by an extraordinary three-dimensional force, and the sculptural art. An element that explains their success also in the contemporary world.
