Anatomical Venus


In our first episode EVER we delve into some weird wonders hidden in the Pitti Palace in Florence, Italy! While stunning, and beautiful in their own ways, these anatomical models had a big influence on the time they were created and into today. Becca tells Laura about her experience seeing them, and why they’re important markers of the past and present obsession with anatomy.
