Who we are
Artes Mechanicae is a research team dedicated to the study of the history of science and technology, characterized by an interdisciplinary approach which integrates traditional historical and graphical methods with instruments of analysis, classification and visualization which have been borrowed from engineering and I.T.
The activities carried out by Artes Mechanicae are directed by an international scientific committee made up of specialists from various fields including history and humanities, science and engineering. These specialists promote the results of their research in congresses and workshops.
Artes Mechanicae promotes techno-scientific culture via the design realization of exhibitions, museum consults, scientific instruments and historical mechanical devices restoration, editorial projects, models of machines and instruments faithfully reconstructed from a philological point of view.
