This theatre is located in what was once the main building of the University of Bologna. It is where 17th century medical students watched human dissections.

Look for the statue of a... 更多

If we hadn't taken the walking tour we might have missed this seeing very interesting room. Tour guide gave us information on how the students performed autopsies and how they had to provide their own bodies to work on.
