Museo della Tortura

A JOURNEY THROUGH HUMAN CRUELTY

The Torture and Death Penalty Museum displays more than 100 tools designed to torture and kill. Some of these tools are extremely rare, dating to the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries. They include the notorious “iron maiden,” the guillotine, rack, torture chair and the chastity belt. Also on display are lesser-known sophisticated devices, such as the “heretic’s fork,” the “noisemaker’s fife,” the “Spanish spider,” and the flaying instruments.
