Breakfast at Museo Galileo

Every Sunday, from 26 January to 3 May

From January 26 to May 3, 2020 - on Sundays at 11 a.m. - the Museo Galileo in Florence becomes a meeting place.
After a tasty breakfast provided by the Antica Pasticceria Caffè S. Firenze, participants will attend practical demonstrations and at the end will receive a useful guide to replicate the activities carried out independently. This year's edition presents two important novelties: the technique of working with clay and the use of the lathe by means of centrifugal force, as well as an appointment on the development of lenses, from Galileo to modern optics for the correction of visual defects.
