Museum of Pathological Anatomy – Diseases and medical progress

0
The Morgagni Museum of Pathological Anatomy offers the public a journey through the diseases that have characterised man from the past to the present day. Before Giovan Battista Morgagni, pathology was based on the idea that the functioning of the human body was regulated by humours, on which all physiological and pathological processes depended. Diseases were a consequence of 'humoral' imbalance. With anatomical dissection, Morgagni for the first time associated the symptoms of the living patient with the lesions of the organs observable in the corpse, formulating a first classification of pathologies. The museum collections provide a snapshot of the living conditions and pathologies that affected human beings in the 18th and 19th centuries, on the one hand, and of medical advances in the prevention and treatment of diseases, on the other.
