The Creepy and Beautiful 18th Century Anatomical Models of La Specola, Florence

Greetings! As everyone around me knows, I went to Florence in Italy in September. I have one more thing to share with you though, the spectacularly macabre La Specola, the oldest science museum in Europe. There’s taxidermy, fossils and general oogly booglies, but the best bit by far are the wax anatomical models.

Have a look at the film made by me and edited by Youtube channel Haunting TV, then glance over the photos by Bill Purnell.
