because of all the chaos we had with different kinds of pets around our apartment I thought for one year that the entrance to the zoological garden is right at the Via Roma. Later, however, I found out that it was the botanical garden. The sign at the door said Orto Botanico and the opening hours were written next to it. Our host had a strange relationship to her plants too. From the moment of our arrival she kept talking about her cactuses. In addition to the confusion of botanical and zoological garden, the University of Medicine is marked within the city plan. In reality it is only an old abandoned building. Until now I couldn´t find out whether Galileo Galilei has studied there. But I just imagine that he did so.
