Urban Anatomies is a space which aims at giving network visibility to the approaches, activities and results of a research project  devoted to the history of cabinets, museums and anatomical collections.

The project looks at his goals from a double perspective: the plurality of the regimes of exhibition of these particular scientific objects in a given time and the changes experiencied by these objects and regimes of exhibition from  17th to 20th centuries.


On the other hand, the project aims at collecting the more diverse materials related to these subjects and to spread out reviews of exhibitions, books, readings, visual material, etc., as well as bibliografical orientations, suggestions and comments both from the members of the research team and from other people interested in this particular aspect of modern and contemporary urban cultures.
