The Anatomia Depicta, composed in Paris before 1589, is an exceptionally important document for understanding the scientific and artistic achievements of 16th-century Europe.
Its 292 pages contain 71 vividly painted anatomical plates and describe the surgeries and autopsies carried out by Filippo Cavriani, a physician and author from a noble Mantuan family.
The codex was discovered in 1752 by Giovanni Targioni Tozzetti, a physician an librarian who consulted the volume in the library of Giovanni Giraldi. The Anatomia Depicta was acquired by the National Central Library in Florence in 1912, where it is currently stored.
