The Museum of Pathological Anatomy is located in the historic center of Pisa. The Museum is part of the University Museum System of the University of Pisa, as well as of the Pisan Museum Network. The Museum of Pathological Anatomy arose around 1870 as a collection of anatomical pieces of pathological and didactic interest taken from a corpse and placed in blown glass vases. It houses an important collection of human and pathological animal pieces of great scientific value, some of which date back to the Grand Ducal era. Considering the starting dates of the collections, much of the material reported has historical, as well as pathological and didactic interest, and in any case includes rare finds and specimens. A section dedicated to findings of forensic interest, donated by the Department of Forensic Medicine of the University of Pisa, and a section dedicated to paleopathology, with a rich collection of paleopathological finds illustrating various bone pathologies in ancient human skeletal remains, have recently been added. from the Etruscan era to the Middle Ages, the result of the research activity of the Paleopathology Division. Part of this last section is a pre-Columbian mummy, which constitutes a find of great interest and attraction for the public. The Museum is currently undergoing renovations and not all the finds are on display. During the emergency closure, the University Museum System and also the Museum of Anatomy and Pathological Histology have enhanced their virtual part, becoming SMArt, offering new digital contents.
