History and Collection

The collection includes a number of mathematical models (built mainly in plaster, in wood or metal or with colored thread) which were built between the late nineteenth and early twentieth century in order to view the properties of a given theory or to support a concrete vision of a theoretical result.

The collection also includes some mathematical tools, used to solve various problems in sciences such as engineering and mechanics, and the famous "phone" built by Eugenio Beltrami to represent a portion of the surface of constant negative curvature.
