Ornithology and natural science civic museum “Luigi Scanagatta”

The “Luigi Scanagatta” museum is of cultural and historical importance because of the number of birds specimens that was gathered throughout the years and its history.

It was established in 1962 by professor Luigi Scanagatta, a well known ornithologist, botanist ad malacologist and in short time the collection became of an incredible importance, as well as of its dimensions, because some of the specimens are very rare and difficult to find in this area.

The library, furthermore, contains more then 1500 volumes, including some ancient ones, divided in different sections: ornithology, zoology, malacology, botany and mycology.

Thanks to its rich collection the museum helps to understand the importance of the environments we can see in Varenna’s surroundings.
