title ABSTRACT /title

A Collection of ScientificInstrumentsat theDawnof theModern Hospital: Vincenzo Viviani'sPhysical-Mathematical Instrumentsand SantaMariaHospital in Florence(1871-1895) - Around the second half of the nineteenth century, the collection of physics-mathematical instruments that Vincenzo Viviani (1622-1703) had bequeathed to the Santa Maria Nuova Hospital of Florence stirred new interest. The process of modernising the hospital was indeed to lead to the progressive alienation of the institution's rich historical patrimony, including the scientific collections. In tracing back the negotiations that led to the sale of the Viviani collection, archive documents have also brought to light the collection inventory, which is now proposed anew to help recount the history of how scientific instruments became museum collectibles in Florence.
