The laboratory

Due to their activities in mechanics through teaching, planning and constructions, the Piarist priests of the Ximenian Observatory used small laboratories and workshops run by local craftsmen.
Only in some cases did they go to bigger workshops, as when they constructed the Barsanti and Matteucci engine.
