“Luigi Cattaneo” Anatomical Wax Collection – The true nature of the human body

0
The "Luigi Cattaneo" Collection of Anatomical Waxes is housed in a free and open space which, in addition to preserving, exhibiting and curating what has been inherited from the past, aims to produce new scientific knowledge. The collection of normal and pathological human anatomy illustrates the path taken by medical scientists in the 18th and 19th centuries when, having acquired knowledge of the true nature of the human body, they turned their attention to investigating its pathologies. The wax, natural bone and dried preparations constitute an important nucleus of material for didactic purposes that completes, in the succession of scientific discoveries, the 18th century collection of normal human anatomy present in the Museum of Palazzo Poggi, thus representing a continuum in medical study that excelled in Bologna between the 18th and 19th centuries.
