  • Great Museum, mathematics and computation since the stone age, located in the magnificent surroundings of the historical center of Pennabilli in the former Town Hall, on four levels, starting with the historical artifacts of the calculation up to the present day. An exciting ride towards the history of computation, interesting are the machines and laboratory rooms.

  • That may make a mathematics Museum, is hardly the first thing that you think. Here, however, they got it: this museum deals with the long history of man's relationship with numbers and calculating, recounting the progress, the instruments as created, the most important results and most suggestive themes. The Museum is a short walk from the main square of Pennabilli, almost in a corner of the square. Arrived at the Palace you enter on the left, the door of the tourist office. There is a ticket office. They brought me up the stairs to the third floor, because the tour plans to start from the top and down to the basement. You start winding, meandering corridors, then follow with numbered stamps that help go in order. Along the route is the story of how man has invented and used numbers, starting from 30000 years ago and passing by the Sumerians, Egyptians, Greeks. Surprised to discover that the Romans, however great architects and much more, in mathematics were SADI and did not give contributions worth mentioning. The path extends even to the Mayans and Aztecs, before moving to our Renaissance. From there the centuries, mention names of scholars also very known and important for the contributions from their data to the advancement of mathematics. Then the argument passes to the tools that man has created to aid in the calculation, and it shows the interesting evolution from mechanical calculating machines of wood processors a few years ago. You review many forgotten calculators, including the registers of the times when many of us were children. It also highlighted how computers have been critical to the advancement of this science. No shortage of nods to some known and suggestive subject area who meet in mathematics: the Pythagorean theorem, primes, encryption, pi, the golden ratio, Fractals, infinity. Towards the end you can also get in a rectangular room with mirrored walls, where the visitor is seen reproduced in countless copies turn in all possible ways. The whole thing is very valid, but my impression is that, at some point in the route, you could make a greater effort. Either you leave the Museum knowing something more, though, with the opportunities that the path created, one might think could lead viewers a little further, to the satisfaction of internalizing the meaning of some conquest of this science. On balance, this is a museum which certainly advice. For anyone, but especially for children: many guys have a difficult relationship with mathematics, and a visit like this (preferably preventive) could arrange them better. Duration of the visit in my case was just over two hours (you can read all the texts illustrative calmly).

  • The exhibition is spread over three floors, exhibits very interesting and often documented. Definitely a guided tour is recommended.
