We meet weekly on Wednesdays to explore Bologna by foot. For last week’s UNIVERSO in Gita, on 13th November 2019,  we visited the Collection of Anatomical WAXES “Luigi Cattaneo”. This exhibition is part of of Sistema Museale di Ateneo (SMA) by the University of Bologna.



At 10:30 we meet in front of the Porta Galliera office and walk together as a group to our destination. The exhibition is located at the Deptartment of Human Anatomical Sciences and Physiopathology.




The Collection of Anatomical Waxes “Luigi Cattaneo” is housed in a free and open space that, in addition to preserving, exhibiting and treating what was inherited from the past, wants to produce new scientific knowledge. The collection of normal and pathological human anatomy illustrates the path taken by the scholars of medical sciences in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries when, having acquired knowledge of the true nature of the human body, they turned to the investigation of its pathologies. The preparations in wax, natural and dried bones constitute an important nucleus of material for educational purposes which completes, in the succession of scientific discoveries, the eighteenth-century collection of normal human anatomy present at the Museum of Palazzo Poggi, thus representing a continuum in the medical office, which excels in the city of Bologna between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.






After that interesting visit we went to see the Zoology Collection, which is also part of the network of museums and collections of the University of Bologna.

We wanted to finish our tour from last week’s UNIVERSO in Gita on the 3rd floor. It was fascinating to oberserve a variety of animal species from the 19th – 20th century.
