“Plants: what a mystery “: Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 November

The plant kingdom is complex, fascinating and, above all, capable of finding solutions to the most disparate problems. It is for this and for many other reasons that plants contain the secret of the survival of humans and our planet. On Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 November, visitors to the interactive museum of Città della Scienza will be able to discover some of the secrets of the plant world by participating in the activities carried out in collaboration with Le Nuvole Scienza on this interesting and fascinating world that surrounds us: the science show “Plants: mysterious organisms ”and the interactive laboratory “The geometry of plants ”.


In addition, on the occasion of the event displaying in Italian museums and cultural spaces “Adventures between the pages – Read at the museum”, an initiative promoted by the Kid Pass Culture association and the Kid Pass portal, the museum spaces will be populated with many creative and animated readings on the subject of literature dedicated to families with children up to 6 years.

As always, it will be possible to take guided tours of the museum of the Human Body and attend the extraordinary shows of the Planetarium.


Plants, silent and immobile, seem to have the sole purpose ofmake the environment pleasant and graceful, but will it really be like that? Very oftenappearances are deceiving! With this activity, you will be introduced, through experiments and observations, to the mysterious world of plants to discover their feautures
Target: from 7 years old


THE GEOMETRY OF PLANTS – interactive lab
Plants are truly amazing organisms, among their most sophisticated organs there are leaves, generally involved in the absorption of light for nutrient production through chlorophyll photosynthesis, but how will they arrange themselves on the stem without shading each other? Together with the science communicators of Le Nuvole we will identify – with
curiosity and a little practice – how many natural processes take place
according to mathematical and geometric models.
Target: from 7 years old


An activity dedicated to young visitors to Città della Scienza. The scientific communicators of Le Nuvole Scienza will animate various animated reading meetings.
Target: from 3 to 6 years
