Mathematic Gallery

Ex tobacco Factory. Via del Risorgimento, Casalina di Deruta

Sharing the beauty of Mathematics 

This has been recently opened, started in 1998 thanks to the research works on Education of Mathematics of Emanuela Ughi.

The starting idea was the desire of sharing the beauty of Mathematics, of its theorems, of the geometric shapes that can be seen in the world surrounding us: there are for this very reason many objects to disassemble, to move, puzzles, drawings to be made with the so-called poor materials and, sometimes, even imperfect constructions, but conveying anyhow and idea or a mathematical theorem.

A section of the Gallery consists in an interesting gathering of materials specifically projected for the Education of Mathematics for disabled persons – in particular for visually impaired persons from early in life and to be of support in dyscalculia and Cognitive Retardation cases.

The gallery, opened on May 2014, is constantly changing: Emanuela Ughi and her students are keeping on looking the world through mathematical eyes, making the most various exhibit for this very unusual museum.
