About Volta Temple, Como

The Tempio Voltiano (Italian; Volta Temple in English) is a museum in the city of Como, Italy that is dedicated to Alessandro Volta, a prolific scientist and the inventor of the electrical battery.

The neoclassical building was designed by Federico Frigerio. It was completed in 1927 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the scientist's death, but it was inaugurated only in 1928. It hosts a collection of scientific instruments used by the physicist including his early voltaic piles (batteries). The first floor has a display of his personal belongings and his awards.

It is one of the most visited museums in town. 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. Banknotes based on the Italian lira have since been replaced by notes denominated in Euros.

Volta Temple, Como Reviews

  • Only old equipment stored in cabinets. Could be more interactive. The building is beautiful!

  • The monument itself is not the most interesting piece of arts or achitecture you can admire in Italy , but take a walk along the lake and you won't regret it

  • It's a beautiful building with an interesting exhibition. Well worth a visit.

  • A nice A. Volta tribute, one of at least 3 in como

  • Very cheap but takes 10 minutes. A must for geeks but others probably won't enjoy.
