Visiting the Fisiocritici Museum and Tartuca Contrada Museum

This week we had the chance to visit the Fisiocritici Natural History Museum, inspired by the chapter “Blue of Distance” by Rebecca Solnit in which she discusses the rare blue pigment lapis lazuli.  We then visited the Museum of the Tartuca Contrada, located around the corner and showcasing the memoriabilia and regalia of the neighborhood’s centuries of history.
