Description

Photography seemed to give an answer to psychiatry's need to anchor its hypotheses and certainties to the image and the body. Director Augusto Tamburini (1877-1907) introduced the use of photography at the San Lazzaro psychiatric hospital. The archives preserve the original instrumentation and 1500 images of patients, buildings and scenes of life and work.
