From 4th May to 13th October an exhibition shows how discoveries and technologies pertaining to physics have changed the way we view our body.
Virtual man. Body, Mind, Cyborg is a great exhibition of scientific dissemination by the National Institute of Nuclear Physics and the Italian Institute of Technology. The Turin section of the National Institute of Nuclear Physics has also availed itself of the collaboration of various organisations within Sistema Scienza Piemonte, including CentroScienza and Xké - Il laboratorio della curiosità, which are in charge of educational activities and animation.
The exhibition depicts how discoveries and technologies pertaining to physics have changed the way we view our bodies, allowing us to explore how the brain works and even design artificial systems with intelligent behaviour that can reproduce our body functions.
The exhibition is characterised by immersive video installations, interactive games and multi-projections through a space of 1000 square metres, drawing an engaging and informative journey through large cube thematic islands.
The public can discover the instruments invented by science to observe and treat the human body, understand the mind and strengthen the body, replacing parts when necessary.
The exhibition is part of the calendar of celebrations of the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci. It opens in Turin at Mastio della Cittadella from 4th May to 13th October.
Secretary General Alberto Anfossi was at the inauguration on 3th May.
