At the beginning of each itinerary, hundreds of valuable original objects are on display, which take the visitor on a journey through the history of calculation and mathematics.
The visitor can admire a Sumerian foundation nail and tablets dating from 4,500 years ago, Roman stone tablets and Etruscan inscriptions, abacuses, Chinese suan pan,Japanese soroban, Russian schoty, an astrolabe, a medieval counting table, Incan quipù and Peruvian chimpù, the Summa by Luca Pacioli, Napier's cylinders and rods, proportional compasses; the Pascaline (a recon- struction), rulers and nomographs, arithmometers, and mechanical, electromechanical, electronic, and programmable calculators.
In many lab-rooms the visitor can experiment with the concepts and ideas of mathematics, not only to partake of knowledge but, more importantly, emotions. Observe infinity and zero; deal with Pythagoras's theorem or immerse themselves in an exciting voyage inside a fractal; play with prime numbers and the Greek pi, or be fascinated by that little golden number which makes everything around us beautiful, and discover, bit-by-bit, that mathematics is the basis for computer science, Internet, virtual reality, and robotics, and that it is part of our everyday lives.
