Italy, day thirteen: 20/06/17

I always try to bring you high culture in this blog, so todays picture is of the Anatomical theatre of the Archiginnasio. 

Bologna is apparently the oldest university in Europe and, during the   Renaissance the Archiginnasio housed most of the university faculties. 

This beautiful lecture theatre is where medical lectures took place, including dissections. 

It might seem gory now, but places like this helped build the foundations of modern medical knowledge.
