TOWN OF MONSUMMANO TERME

MUSEUM OF THE CITY AND TERRITORY

"A mirror of the population and its history"

The sky room

Astronomy and geography in Enlightenment Tuscany. The planetarium’s presence and activity produces an important demonstration of the relationship between astronomical studies and the territory’s cartographic representation. In fact, thanks to the policy of the Lorraine grand dukes, the territory’s new culture, which had taken shape in Enlightenment Tuscany, was able to produce—through the work of scientists, mathematicians and astronomers—a modern representation of the territory based on the astronomical-geodetic measurements carried out by Francesco Inghirami, the drafter of Tuscany’s first modern map.
