This building is a rare example of the large-scale teaching and research laboratories belonging to European universities. Thanks to its monumentality, functionality and elegance, the Laboratory space offers the visitor a unique ambience that recalls past glories. Although it no longer functions as a laboratory, visitors to the space have the opportunity to experience its original purpose. On this particular visit the focus will be on the teaching of chemistry and the scientific instruments used in the 19th century.
