GEO-MUSEUM MONTEARCI

This mineralogy and palaeontology museum is host in the 17th century convent of the capuchin friars in Masullas, as a reminder of the vital work monasteries and convents did since the middle ages for the cultural and scientific development of the European countries.

Following the death of Charlemagne, monasteries became vital centres for European science and culture. For a long time, in their libraries, scriptoria and workshops liberally developed arts, sciences and literature. Thus, for centuries friars were the custodians of the old-age European culture, allowing the development of science although as a support to Christianism.

Monasteries also became ideal crossroads along pilgrimage routes, thus growing into powerful culture, science and technical skills dissemination centres; this task would be entrusted to museums since the 18th century.

Since then, acquiring and preserving natural heritage, promoting its study and disseminating its features, has been the primary mission of modern Natural History Museums. The absence of such museums in Sardinia resulted in a worrisome impoverishment of that natural heritage resources already acknowledged by the first explorers of the island.
