Barsanti and Matteucci Museum – The invention of the internal combustion engine

0
Via Sant'Andrea 58 houses a permanent exhibition dedicated to the works and lives of two Lucchese scientists: Nicolò Barsanti (born Father Eugenio) and Felice Matteucci, inventors of the revolutionary internal combustion engine. In the Barsanti and Matteucci Museum it is therefore possible to observe and study at close quarters the working reproductions of the first internal combustion engine and three other engines designed by the two scientists from Lucca; a synthesis of the documents that recount the birth and evolution of studies on the internal combustion engine; the life stories of Barsanti and Matteucci and the awards they received at the time for their ingenuity, up to the essential elements that proved the primogeniture of the internal combustion engine. The exhibition is unique in the world.
