Despite the major differences between the cultural physiognomies of Leonardo da Vinci and Giovanni Pico, i. e. those to be expected between an artist/scientist «without letters» and a refined philosopher-commentator of Latin, Greek and Hebrew texts, a number of analogies and points of contact can be documented, sufficient to allow a comparison based not on extrinsic factors, but on the ways in which the appearance of these two intellectuals shaped the cultural scene of Italy and Europe.
