Mateureka, Museum museum of calculus

The museum fills four floors and houses hundreds of original and valuable exhibits charting the history of calculation and of mathematics, from the Sumerian foundation cone dating from 4,500 years ago – the only one of its kind in Italy – to modern robots which can be programmed in polar coordinates. There are a number of workshops where experiments in mathematical ideas and concepts can be carried out. The aim is to impart both knowledge and emotions, helping visitors to discover that mathematics is the basic language of the universe and an integral part of every facet of our daily lives.
