The Torture Museum brings together a truly unique and internationally renowned collection of over 100 original instruments of torture from the 16th and 17th centuries and philological reconstructions from the 18th and 19th centuries: from the inquisitorial chair, to the baccanaro pipe, to the Spanish spiders.

A great exhibition, inserted in an evocative context, which will not fail to amaze visitors, but also to make them reflect on the complex systems of torture. A chilling journey between tools and devices born from terrible human inventiveness, but which become a formidable testimony against the crime of state and power.

An exhibition to shake consciences

The content of the exhibition is strong impact on visitors precisely to make the viewer aware of the existence of torture throughout history and of the deplorable permanence of this practice which still occupies the front pages of newspapers today.

If the dominant element that led this exhibition to be visited by millions of people is the curiosity aroused by historical horror which originates from a distant and dark era like the Middle Ages, it is also true that it has become a detonator of consciences.

An exhibition that forces reflection on intolerance and human cruelty throughout history. The intent of the exhibition is precisely this, let people know what torture is and denounce it.

At a time when issues such as anti-Semitism, intolerance, racism, violence, war, this project, articulated according to various cultural initiatives, certainly represents a moment of reflection, an opportunity to know and remember what happens and what could happen if we all together did not seek the respect of calling ourselves men.
