The Museo Laboratorio della Mente is closed due to renovations of the ward 6 and expansion of the exhibition.
Live the experience through the VIRTUAL TOUR that will allow you to visit the museum free of charge
When in 2000 the Museo Laboratorio della Mente was inaugurated, the
asylum had just been closed and at the time there was the need to keep a memorial that although tragic had to be told so that everyone would be aware. The asylum of Santa Maria della Pietà has been for a long time a space of segregation and the construction of a museum had to have the purpose to return this place to the city, to make it accessible and open to all, so that anyone could become aware of the past ensuring that practices such as ghettoization and stigma couldn’t have space in today’s society anymore.
And still today this is the mission that animates the Museum: to make sure that it’s the community itself that becomes aware and inclusive of diversity.
Education Lab is a space of documentation and training where you can discover stories and themes that are present in the Museum and where you can start an in-depth journey, aware that the education of future generations and the production of new scientific knowledge to promote health and well-being, knowledge, social inclusion and
a sustainable growth in the reduction of inequalities.
