Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The article highlights how iconographic art can be rich in interesting cues for medical-biological sciences, of how interdisciplinary dialogue can provide unexpected and interesting ideas for research. The relationships between medicine and art are manifold. Art is not just documentary evidence. In it we find the evolution of diagnostic techniques and medical treatments but above all human labor. In particular, the article examines a painting by Caravaggio that represents the story of old Cimone and his daughter Pero. History offers interesting insights both for genetics and for ethics.
