Its €3 per person so its cheap but doesn't last long. Its truly a great room and well rebuilt. A little more english subtitles on the outside exhibits would be better

Should be free of charge
1/2020
This was a nice experience, good for me as a medical student. However, it should be free of charge, at least for students... I was expecting more for 3 euros...

Strangely Fascinating Insight into Early Medicine & Dissection
5/2019
This is definitely one of the more macabre or morbid sights of Bologna but it is fascinating and strangely attractive in a grim sort of way. The Anatomy Theatre is a part of Bologna university, the oldest uni the world, where they have dissected human corpses for teaching and study purposes since the 1600s.
It is decorated almost entirely with light reddish spruce wood so it looks very striking and ornate. The large marble slab where the cadaver lay is in central position, surrounded by tiered seating so that everyone could easily see the dissection. You are able to pick a position and sit in these seats and imagine yourself as a 17th or 18th century student. The balustrades around the marble table amused us. Did they have to stop enthusiastic and curious students from crowding in too close to the corpses?
The professor’s chair is the throne-like one at the front of the room, with a couple of gruesome, grisly sculptures on either side. These are the Spellati or “skinless’ statues, showing the exposed anatomy of the body.
The most decorative part is the ceiling, which is kind of strange because it was only the cadaver who looked up at it. Apollo, the Greek god of medicine is right above the marble slab and is surrounded by the 14 constellations.
Of course, you can’t help but wonder how they sourced the bodies. Was body-snatching a thing? Apparently it was much more organised than that and there were a number of statutes regulating the numbers of bodies and who supplied them. Mostly the bodies were those who had been hanged or poor people who died and would have otherwise been buried free of charge by the city, although there are earlier stories of students sometimes roaming the city in search of people who had died suddenly.
When you go in, make sure to look for the box of laminated information sheets by the door. They only have general information but there are no signs or other information so it is helpful to grab one of these as you go in.

GETTING THERE:
• The entrance is not immediately obvious. It is in the square behind Piazza Maggiore, under a portico of 30 arches. There are not a lot of signs so to get to the theatre, head up the giant staircase. The upper story wraps around a central courtyard. We found a counter in the corner which sold tickets as well as cards and small souvenirs and he directed us to the theatre.
• There were no lines and it was not crowded inside. We went straight in.
• Opening hours are from 10am every day until early evening
• Entry to the Anatomical Theatre and Stabat Mater Hall € 3

Worth it for the price
11/2019
Quite an interesting place to visit and the wall reliefs and decoration are amazing. The actual theatre area is cool when you imagine what it was used for but there are some other areas to explore include with entrance which was only 3€ and kids are free.

Fascinating, very convenient location
4/2019
This 'teatro' dates back to the very beginning of the University of Bologna. It's a beautiful room with a fascinating history, not very large and wouldn't require more than 30 minutes to see unless you really want to explore it's rich history more deeply.

Child entry
11/2019 • Perhe
Children 10&14 were not allowed entry when we visited as “too young”. It does state on website when you look but we only did this after trying to visit. Not sure of the reason for this rule - we should be encouraging children to engage in history and science. It would be nice if this changes in the future. Can’t really rate.

This is a 17th century medical theatre and gives great insight into the first medical practises.The theatre was where doctors first started to learn about the human anatomy.It costs 3 euros to enter and the theatre has a marble slab in the centre,surrounded by benches and some beautiful wood panel work.There is a lecture hall here that houses many books of real historic value,aswell as an impressive library.Worth a visit.

Historical Medicine
9/2019
Wonderfully preserved medical theater at the University of Bologna. A view into how medicine was first practiced and how doctors learned. There is a self-guide available in may languages and it is interesting to see the medical books on display along with the anatomically correct musculature statues to either side of the instructors' chair.

While it is a very interesting visual sight, I would recommend either going as part of a tour or reading about it prior to visiting - it will make the visit more worthwhile. Also take time to check out the ceiling. While my eyes are not as good as they used ot be, some really good photos will bring the detail down to you.
