20 July 2008


The anatomy students joined us in third week of Prato program. So we had 2 excursions to the anatomy museums. Here are some pictures from the Museum of Zoology and Natural History, La Specola, Florence. La Specola means observatory, a reference to the astronomical observatory founded there in 1790. Parts of the collection trace back to the Medici Family. It is known for its collection of wax anatomical models from the 18th century.

La Specola

very bad lightings there... but the specimens themselves were amazing.
