Who finds a friend finds a treasure – 28th and 29th July

Friendship pleasures!

July 30th “Save the Date” because it identifies an important anniversary: the World Day of Friendship! A few years ago, this feast has entered right into our lives, after the UN proclaimed it in 2011 to give the right recognition to a positive feeling that is considered essential to build peace and sharing among peoples. According to the United Nations Organization, thanks to Friendship, we can contribute to world movements to achieve lasting stability, create a network that brings security and increase people’s passion for a better world, where everyone is united for the good common.

Celebrate with us this joyful event with games and workshops to do with your best friend! And do not forget to celebrate him!


“Heart Friends” is a scientific study dedicated to the value of friendship and its relevance in our everyday life! The famous proverb “Who finds a friend, find a treasure” is an example of how we can’t  live without our best friends, people always ready to put us in a good mood and help us in times of difficulty! But did you imagine that friendship has a series of beneficial effects on the human body? Or that not only men can experience this feeling, but that it is widespread throughout the Animal Kingdom? Or again, how many are, according to the researchers, the friends that man needs?

“Heart Friends” awaits you with many other curiosities! The Friend is the person who holds out his hand in time of need! Have you ever tried to think about the importance of shaking hands? When we know a person, immediately, in our culture, we tend to take her hand to introduce ourselves! This gesture, therefore, is synonymous with openness, welcome, welcome, empathy, which are the basic components of Friendship. Try this “ice break” to meet new and nice friends in “Let’s get our hands!”.
What’s more fun than spending time with your friends? And sometimes even to challenge them to experience the thrill of shouting, “I won!” Challenge your friends on the various exhibits of the Interactive Body Museum and become the champion of the “Corporiadi – The Corporal Olympics!”.
For the winner, gadget and fame! Finally, do not miss “Microcosmo”, a workshop for children, where you can populate a landscape (diorama) with many funny animals and plants and discover all the relationships between the species that coexist in the same environment! Will they be able to live together or will they end up competing? Find it out!

Visit the exhibition dedicated to the sea! Find out which new fish, molluscs and crustaceans live in our tanks following the guided tour “Marine Ecosystems”. During the guide, you will have the opportunity to caress some marine organisms in our Touch pool. What an emotion! For the little ones, “Create your marine animals“, a laboratory where fish shapes are colored, inventing new species, and then, as for “magic”, make them appear and swim in a large virtual aquarium. BIT is back the most exhibit loved by adults and children! BIT! You do not know him? Come and meet him, he will answer all your scientific curiosities and not only … Where have you been in this time? What adventures will he tell you? Do not miss this appointment with “Talk to BIT”. Take part in the guided tour by “Bugs & CO”, the new exhibition space dedicated to the spectacular world of insects and more. For every man on Earth there are over 150 million insects. “The six-legged giants” have conquered almost all the habitats of our planet …. it’s time to start getting to know them better.

Hidden within our exhibitions dedicated to the incredible variety of the animal world, the exhibition The Sea and the Insetti & Co Show, there are many funny examples of Animals Friends! Friendship, or rather a relationship in which an animal species helps and is helped by another is called Symbiosis. You will be amazed to discover the intricate “Natural Relations” between clown fish and anemones or between mushrooms and leaf-cutting ants!

In addition to guided tours to Corporea, the Interactive Exhibition of the Human Body,  the 2D show “From the Earth to the Universe – From the Earth to the Universe” to discover the most important theories elaborated by man during the time in the astronomical field up to the future perspectives, and for 3D lovers, “Robot Explorers” is waiting for you to travel together, lander and orbiter inside our solar system.
