Museo Galileo

Today I went back to the basics with a visit to the Museo Galileo taking me on a journey back in time through the history of science beginning in the 15th century.

We were reminded by the museum’s writing that: “Since antiquity, mankind has been fascinated by time, viewed as an enigma on both the philosophical and the physical level.”

We crossed through rooms dedicated to the display of both terrestrial and celestial globes. Imagine having a globe – a spherical representation of the earth – at your fingertips after centuries of believing the earth to be flat. The other incredible idea about these globes was the concept of mapping the skies and the earth.
