Museo di Anatomia Patologica - Polo museale Sapienza

The first collection of anatomic specimens was made at the end of the nineteenth century by professor Ettore Marchiafava and exhibited in some rooms of the Santo Spirito Hospital. It was transferred in the thirties to the current location of the Museum of Pathologic Anatomy. The collection includes over 2200 specimens, extirpated during surgical interventions or autopsies, kept in special transparent glass containers or dipped in formaldehyde for their preservation. They are catalogued into various sections that cover the whole human pathology. Particularly significant is the section dedicated to the cardiovascular pathology with over 900 malformed hearts and the section regarding the neoplastic pathology of the skeleton.
