Fishing in the mud
Website

Fifty years after the Florence flood this exhibition documents the event, focusing a spotlight on the dramatic effects suffered by the then Istituto e Museo di Storia della Scienza and highlighting the salvage work and subsequent restoration of its antique scientific instruments, the success of which can be ascribed above all to the passionate efforts of its director, Maria Luisa Righini Bonelli. On display are instruments and books that were gravely damaged by the flood, but which have since been restored.
