|a XIX century Physics Lab in Venice|
In 1994 Foscarini organized an exhibition of the 19th century instruments still to be found in its Physics Lab. This temporary exhibition marked the beginning of a long and hard project: the recovery of the ancient physics instruments of the Liceo Foscarini. 8 years later was opend a permanent exhibition. In fact, concluded in January 2003 work on the restoration of the rooms which were to house the permanent Foscarini Physics Museum, the "Antonio Maria Traversi Physics Museum", dedicated to Abbot Antonio Maria Traversi, this institute's first headmaster, opened its doors to the public on Saturday 20th December 2003!
But before its material birth, this museum was virtually realized on the net in 1999-2000 with the rich collection of pages regarding its ancient tools. Foscarini has opened the Ancient Physics Lab to guided tours and former Foscarini student Pierandrea Malfi (now Curator of the Museum) created pages about the most interesting instruments.
