Museo Alessandro Volta

One of the great scientists of his time,  Alessandro Volta was an 18th physicist known for his pioneering work in electricity; his 1776 electrochemical cell was the first battery of its kind, and the volt was named after him.

Volta was well known in his day; Napoleon made him a count in 1801. The Como museum in his honor, also know as the Voltian Temple, displays some of his original instruments and experiments.
