Galileo Galilei shows since his earliest youth, his interest for art, especially for painting, so much that his disciple Vincenzo Viviani said: “If at that time he had been the power to choose his profession, he absolutely did election for painting”.

Galileo met several important artists who were his contemporaries, and he inspired many other. A lot of artists dedicated their artworks to the scientist from Pisa.
