Liceo Scientifico Statale "Ulisse Dini" ["Ulisse Dini" State Scientific Secondary School]

The School was instituted in 1930 on the premises that it still occupies today in Via Benedetto Croce. It possesses around fifty educational instruments for Physics and Chemistry, dating from the first and the second half of the 20th century. Of special interest are the scientific glassware, vacuum tubes, cathode tubes, diodes and triodes, models of Alessandro Volta's battery and Antonio Pacinotti's dynamo, transformers and galvanometers.
