Museo Anatomico Leonetto Comparini

The Anatomical Museum

The Anatomical Museum of the University of Siena, as we see it today, was set up after the transfer of the Institute of Normal Human Anatomy from the old seat of the Biological Institutes of Via Laterina to the current one, in the scientific pole of San Miniato. This venue was inaugurated in 2001, after some restructuring interventions, recovery of preparations, educational models, anatomical tables and part of the ancient furnishings.

The Anatomical Museum of Siena is named after Professor Leonetto Comparini who was director of the Institute of Normal Human Anatomy from 1966 to 1997. It offers an ideal path within a nineteenth-century human anatomy institute when there were now disappeared professional figures, like the " Sector "(expert in the art of cut) and the" trainer ", an expert in the conservation of the bodies that transformed into teaching instruments by assisting the requests of the professor of anatomy.

The collections are distributed in three rooms and a corridor.
