The University Museums: Museum of Human Anatomy

Turin’s Museum of Human Anatomy was established in 1739 and was transferred to the Anatomical Institutes Building in 1898, after which it remained virtually untouched.

Indeed, time seems to have stopped in this “cathedral of science”, as the restorative interventions have sought to recreate the 19th century atmosphere. The museum’s exhibition maintains its original configuration.

In fact, the showcases are crowded with specimens, lack internal lighting and are almost devoid of explanatory texts, as was customary in 19th century museums. Nevertheless with three videos, a brief guidebook and a series of information sheets complement, the museum has much to tell about the history of the collections (including that of anatomical wax models, one of the richest in the world), about scientific discoveries and about the activities of Turin’s School of Anatomy in the last 300 years.

The University Museums: Museum of Criminal Anthropology

MACThe year 2009, the centenary of the death of Cesare Lombroso, founder of criminal anthropology, saw the renovation of “his” unique museum.

The collections include anatomical specimens, drawings, photographs, examples of material evidence, written documents, and valuable craft and artistic works created by asylum and prison inmates.

The new museum displays are also intended to provide the visitor the conceptual tools to understand how and why this controversial scientist came to formulate the theory of criminal atavism and what were the errors in his scientific method that led him to found a science that turned out to be so erroneous.
