Luigi Rolando

(1773-1831)

After obtaining a degree in Turin in 1793, he was nominated professor of Anatomy at the University of Sassari. With the Restoration and the return of the Savoy Royal Family to Piedmont, he was entrusted with teaching Anatomy in Turin where he undertook to enrich the collection of the Museum of Anatomy in Turin.

Museum of Human Anatomy

Turin’s Museum of Human Anatomy was established in 1739 and was transferred to the Anatomical Institutes Building in 1898, after which it remained virtually untouched.

Anatomical wax models

The Museum’s recently restored wax models represent one of the richest existing collections of its kind, a legacy of great historical, scientific and artistic interest.
