I went here a week ago (I had been in the building in Feb. 2014 but for whatever reason did not actually go into this room). A key thing to realize is due to an Allied bombing in WWII, this room and much of the...More

It was one of the highlights of my stay in Bologna - while it's not the first anatomical theatre (for this one - go to Padua), it utilizes a different, more modern design. It was great to see both (Padua, Bologna) and understand how acceptance...More

Teatro Anatomico is a classroom where anatomy was taught. It's very interesting because of its historical value, its detailed wooden anatomical sculptures and its importance in terms of university studies of the time. You have to give 3 euro though to enter and to me...More

This is an old medical teaching school. The old surgical teat re is impressive. The library very interesting and massive. It looks small but look through the metal gates at the stage end of the lecture theatre.

Worth a stop in if you're in Bologna and appreciate its history as a university town. An impressive room in a cool historic building loaded with history. Doesn't require much time to visit, but definitely worth it.

Yes, it is the classroom of most modern technology at that time. I imagine the fruits of deep and comprehensive research came to Japan in 19th century.

This was a very interesting place to visit whilst in Bologna and even if you are not interested in history, well worth a visit. Suggest going when the weather is cooler, as there is no air conditioning and it was uncomfortable during our visit.
