Accounts of the first activities by professors and students in the city of Padua were in 1222. At first, lessons took place in the heart of the medieval city spaces made available by religious bodies or by the teachers themselves. In the mid-sixteenth century, the construction of what is now Palazzo Bo began. Like today, it was the nerve centre of the Roman Patavium. The area incorporated pre-existing structures that offered a monumental site capable of representing the role attributed to the Studium by the Venetian state. The masterpieces of the sixteenth century – from the Anatomical Theatre to the Botanical Garden – reflect the thought of intellectuals, humanists, and scientists that shaped them.

"Fasciculo de Medicina in Volgare" presented by the History Centre of the University of Padua. Includes remarkable reproductions of woodcuts used in medieval printing processes that are stored at the University's History Centre, along with accompanying essays that reconstruct the traditions, history, and iconographic works of an early printed anatomy.
A summary of the history of our University from its foundation to the early 2000s.
A very young apprentice arrives in Padua to meet Master Jan Stephan van Calcar, a pupil of Titian. A stunning task awaits him; he must complete the drawings for Andrea Vesalius, the scientist in the mist of writing a great anatomical dissertation. The young apprentice is superstitious and prefers to work with paintbrushes and colours, not with corpses. Over time, Vesalius explains the science behind these drawings but the boy remains concerned. A murder involving the family of a girl who is dear to the young apprentice remains unsolved, and it is Vesalius who solves the mystery!
