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.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
