Blaschka collection

The Museum preserves one of the few Italian collection of marine invertebrates’ glass reproductions realized by Leopold Blaschka.

Consisting of 51 marine invertebrates reproduction created for didactical purposes and probably belonging to the first phase of Blaschka’s production (1822 – 1895), the collection is a remarkable example of the fusion between science and technology, art, craftsmanship and design.

Other important Blaschka’s collection are hosted in famous European and American museums.
