GIOVANNI POLENI MUSEUM

A HISTORY OF PHYSICS BETWEEN PADUA AND THE WORLD

 What is physics? How was it practised in Padua in the 18th century and later? And today?

 The museum answers these questions by proposing a “journey through time”.

The common thread throughout the Museum is the Cabinet of Physics started in Padua by Giovanni Poleni in 1739, famous in Europe at the time, which his successors enriched not only with cutting-edge devices, but also with 16th and 17th century instruments which they used for teaching.

The Museum’s objects therefore have “biographies” that are intertwined both with the history of the University of Padua and with the developments of science from the Renaissance to the 20th century and beyond. 

This is the collection now preserved and studied at the Giovanni Poleni Museum.

It reveals links between local physicists and the national and international scientific community, connections with disciplines such as art, architecture, music and psychology, as well as insights into issues in science and society. Stories of successes and failures highlight the political, social and economic context, as well as the deep connection of the collection to the territory.
