Museo di Anatomia Umana “F. Civinini”
The Museum of human anatomy F. Civini, was founded on November 15, 1832. The museum has about 3400 medical reports divided into various sections, such as archaeological material, a rich historical library, and a wonderful collection of Anatomical tables by Paolo Mascagni.
Pisa was one of the first universities to possess an anatomy school. The teaching of human anatomy began by Cosimo I de 'Medici, who built an anatomical theater in Via della Sapienza. Just at that time, thanks to Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564) the dissection of human corpses ceased to be a clandestine practice to become an investigative tool, encouraged and regulated by special regulations.
To visit the museum you must make an appointment and is free. Photos will be posted in two weeks when I get the chance to visit it.
