To discover an extraordinary invention, you have to experiment for a long time. This was the scientific work of spiritual father Eugenio Barsanti, (1821-1864), citizen of Pietrasanta, inventor with Felice Matteucci of the combustion engine
A genius creation that opened the way for an unstoppable evolution: the engine "accelerated" the times and conquered every aspect of everyday life. The Museum, situated on the first floor of Palazzo Panichi, preserves information of Barsanti's life, curiosities, historical reconstructions, documents, and three combustion engine models.
The "Barsanti and Matteucci International Award", established in 2000, promotes the knowledge of this great scientist through the contribution of the most authoritative interpreters of technological progress.
