Museo di Antropologia

Scientific Anthropology

Leontiasis Ossea skull  in the museum

This is more dry and didactic than the usual anthropology museum, dedicated to human evolution through skulls, casts and other bones, the reconstructions of facial features, comparative skeletons, artefacts of prehistoric Italians, displays of bioarchaeology (including the oldest known skeleton of a person afflicted with leprosy, from a 4th-century BC necropolis at Casalecchio di Reno), and a recent acquisition: a yurt from Kazakhstan.
