The Library has two archives: one of the Istituto Tecnico Toscano (ITT), and the other of the Scuole popolari “Gino Capponi” (SPC).


Collects the documents that belonged to the ancient Istituto Tecnico Toscano and testifies to the Institute’s activity from its foundation up to the 20th century.  The documentary material has been found to be of great importance for a historical reconstruction of the didactic collections currently housed at the Fondazione Scienza e Tecnica. Unfortunately, the archive is incomplete: in fact, it was broken up at the moment of splitting up the Istituto Tecnico Galileo Galilei, the direct heir of the Istituto Tecnico Toscano, between the current Istituto Tecnico per Geometri Gaetano Salvemini and the Istituto Commerciale Galileo GalileiThe archive is in the process of being reorganised.
