Swansea University's Summer Placement

From June 1st to 12th, 2015, a Summer Placement offered by the Swansea University was hosted at the Museo Galileo. The students, Amy and Jon Corkill Servillo, had the opportunity to observe the activities of the various sectors of the Museum, to study the collections under an historical, scientific and museological point of view and to visit other Florentine historical and scientific institutions. At the end of their Summer Placement, each student prepared a report, as published below:

Amy Corkill, The Medici Collection (pdf)
Jon Servello, The influence of the Accademia del Cimento in the development of medicine and the biological sciences (pdf)
