Photographer's Note

''The Tempio Voltiano is a museum dedicated to Alessandro Volta situated in the city of Como, Italy.

The neoclassical building was completed in 1927 to celebrate the 100th death anniversary of the scientist, but it was inaugurated only in 1928.

It hosts a collection of scientific instruments used by the physicist and, on the first floor, personal belongings and various awards received by the scientist.

It is one of the most visited museums in town and, until the Italian lira was replaced by the Euro, the temple was featured on the back of the 10,000 lire banknote while Volta's portrait was depicted on the front of the same banknote.''
