Illustrated educational posters

ultima modifica 10/06/2020 11:07

During the 1800s and 1900s illustrated educational posters became very popular teaching tools.

Illustrated charts had been used since the 16th Century, and later on they became a universal medium of communication among various scientific fields, and different levels of complexity. Finding new ways of transmitting scientific knowledge was a need in a University that was opening its doors to the people.

The digitalisation process of the educational boards of the Scientific Departments of Padova University aims to disclose the importance of those documents that witness an epoch and a teaching methodology but also have an intrinsic artistic value.

Illustrated boards date from 1870 and the first decades of 1900s. Browse the collection
