From April 19 to July 14, the Gallerie dell'Accademia
in Venice will launch a new exhibition dedicated to the great polymath, displaying one of his most iconic Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man drawings, the Vitruvian Man.
Since 1822, the Vitruvian Man has been a part of the permanent collection of the Gallerie dell'Accademia
in Venice, Italy.

in Venice this summer (10 May-3 September).
