Focus on “The science of vision. Photography and optical instruments at the time of Maximilian of Habsburg”
At the center of this exhibition it is possible to admire the megaletoscope, a viewer designed around 1860 to observe photographic prints with different light effects.

The original prints, restored for the occasion, will also be exhibited in a new installation that reproduces the 'daytime' and 'nighttime' effect obtained with the megaletoscope.

The exhibition, set up in the former Projects Room, on the ground floor of the Miramare Castle, recently renovated to host temporary exhibitions, will be included in the regular entrance ticket to the Museum and will remain open until 13 September 2020.
