About the Museum
The anatomical statues realised by Ercole Lelli are eight, plus 52 anatomical waxes (30 of them are about muscles and 20 about bones). Lelli planned also the installation of the anatomy room; designing elegant cabinets with glass panes, perfect for hosing the anatomical waxes alternated to showcases were the statues could be easily studied from each point of view.
