Among the vast production of graphic works linked to the projects for the Duomo and its construction, several drawings can be connected to the plates in Cesare Cesariano’s edition of Vitruvius, although with different dates and motivations. As partly shown by Luca Beltrami’s studies of the 1880s, Cesariano’s plates have a very particular function: on one hand they constitute a graphic testimony of other drawing now lost, dating back to the beginnings of the history of the Cathedral. On the other hand, they were themselves a fundamental benchmark and starting point for the many projects surrounding the Duomo since 1521, as demonstrated by the choice of Cesariano’s Ichnographia as a reference for later plans. Moreover, a thorough analysis of two drawings representing the cross-section of the building (and in particular the one at p. 4v in the second volume of the Bianconi collection) reveals them to be connected – each in its own way – to the plate with Vitruvius’ Scaenographia; such finding leads to a series of observations on Cesariano’s knowledge and use of the sources then available regarding the origins of the Cathedral.
