The remains of Morgagni's home

As remembered in the almost illegible memorial tablet on the facade, the family house of Giovanni Battista Morgagni stood in this alley of Forlì (via Missirini): "QUI / DOVE TROVO' / POCHI AVANZI DELLA CASA / DI / G . B. MORGAGNI / IL MUNICIPIO / Q[uesta] . M[emoria] . P[ose]. / 1873".

Let us hope for a quick restoration of the existing house (and of the memorial tablet!). As a matter of fact, the houses of the Father of Pathological Anatomy are not duly preserved (see also the one in Padua).
