Paolo Gorini (1813-1881) has been an unconventional personage of science. He was perfectly in line with the coeval characteristics of the "Scapigliatura" movement, and he is often transfigured in literary terms that, though fascinating, are at times misleading and donâ€™t describe his truer image of scientist and scholar.
The Collezione Paolo Gorini is located inside the Ospedale Vecchio of Lodi, situated in the wonderful 15th century Chiostro della Farmacia.
Wednesday from 10.00 to 12.00,
Saturday from 9.30 to 12.30,
Sunday from 14.30 to 16.30.
The Collezione Paolo Gorini, born in 1981 in the former chapter house of the Ospedale Vecchio, currently presents a new arrangement, thanks also to the works done to expand rooms, create a reception and conference room.
