The association “Tethys” was founded in Florence in 1998 to enhance the Tuscan and Italian natural, geological, cultural and scientific heritage. The association works on the development of the scientific culture through the use of new technologies and the creation of collaborative networks, thanks to numerous partnerships with public and private institutions and with the University and the Museum of Natural History in Florence.

The city houses also the Galileo Museum, a leading European science museum, and has a lot of evidence linked to people who have made history in science, Galileo above all.
