Scuola Grande di San Marco a Venezia

During our visit to Venice we have visited the museums of the Scuola Grande di San Marco, the old civilian hospital of the Serenissima, reopened to the public in 2013. The main exhibition area of the hospital contains an amazing hall for the library and display cases for their medical incunabula and old books, completed by artifacts used in the old hospital. Visiting the display we were impressed by the art decoration of the rooms and learned much about the medical books produced in Venice during the 16th-18th centuries, some of which also reached Transylvania. We were also interested by the old medical and pharmaceutical artifacts, such as mortars and pestles, scarificators, surgery tools and many more. Feel free to read more about it on their website:
