Skin and fine arts share a quantity of morphologic and formal features. Skin diseases occasionally may reproduce clinical aspects that resemble natural elements. Along the years, dermatologists described skin diseases using a lot of “natural comparisons”, that allowed an easy communication and common comprehension. Fine arts, namely famous paintings, can be used with the same aim to identify specific and very similar analogies between pictorial icons and clinical markers of skin disorders. Some contemporary Italian artists interpreted the skin as “pictorial surface” in strict relationship with nature and its elements. It resulted in works that can be very stimulating also for clinical dermatologists.
