The Eye of Science

The year 1839 marks the birth of photography and the beginning of the intimate and complex relationship between this new “instrument” and scientific practice.

“The Eye of Science”—a project developed by Museo Galileo and Museo della Grafica—illustrates this major cultural and scientific turning point with two exhibitions running in Florence and Pisa from November 12, 2022 to February 26, 2023.

The Eye of Science: Giorgio Roster and Odoardo Beccari, Explorers of Place and Image
Florence, Museo Stibbert

The Eye of Science: A Century of Scientific Photography in Italy (1839-1939)

Both exhibitions are curated by Claudia Addabbo and Stefano Casati and organized by Museo Galileo, the Museum Systems of the Universities of Florence and Pisa, Fondazione Alinari per la Fotografia, and Museo Stibbert.
