  • If you go to Lodi can not miss a visit to the Museum Paolo Gorini. Located inside the old hospital reached from Piazza San Francesco, you enter through a small courtyard where you can admire a cloister of 400. Garth was a doctor who was studying the embalming and here you will find many interesting findings of its studies.

  • Paolo Gorini was a genius: multifaceted genius, Professor of mathematics and physics in Lodi, but Bunting of birth (and ghisleriano), lived in the tumultuous time of the Risorgimento, the opposition between Church and State (the non expedit of Pius IX); fond of volcanology, was a Bishop of science as well as he could understand it a man of positivism. The Museum, or better, the Anatomical Collection Paolo Gorini, since 1981, at the behest of the former Mayor of Lodi and Giovanni Spadolini, then Minister, offers the visitor about a hundred anatomical exhibits housed in one room of the old hospital. Garth indeed invented a technique to "petrify the bodies";p reservandoli for eternity. Make faith the two bodies kept in collection, still perfect, and a number of other exhibits. The Museum must be contextualized in the Italy of the time, just out from the Risorgimento, and trust in science as solutrice of each problem. Remarkable lithography at the entrance, v. Baker, which qualifies Gorini almost like a magician, portraying him with long robe, a triangle Hat posed nearby and a magic wand. Garth was also one of the first Italian proponents of cremation, and indeed after the collection would be to visit the crematorium of Riolo, near Lodi, designed by Garth and in use until a few years ago. Learn about Garth is a must in addition that makes us reconstruct a cruel time. Thanks to the leadership of Prof. SSA Monica Rossi, accurate and professional. Attention the Museum is only open in w. e. and Wednesday mornings! Attention; any small child or rather sensitive person may remain unimpressed, so if you suspect, better avoid. To everyone else, good wonders with the works of the "Wizard of Praises" <

  • Interesting collection that gathers 166 anatomical preparations made by scientist Paul Chandler between 1842 and 1881. The current construction was treated by anatomist Antonio Allegri. The exhibition is housed in the Old hospital, now home of the SLA, in the former Chapter House of Friars, who once ran the hospital. The room is richly decorated with frescoes and overlooking the 15th century cloister of the pharmacy.

  • Interesting free display where you can see 166 anatomical preparations produced by scientist Paolo Gorini, including mummified heads, fetuses with malformations, arts and even some whole corpse. Impressive and a bit creepy.
