FOSSILS: NEWS FROM THE PAST! October 16 and 17, 2021 at City of Science

Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 October come to Città della Scienza and to discover fossils and turn into a paleontologist! Paleontology is the discipline that studies the fossil remains of plant and animal organisms, reconstructing their morphology, origin and evolution, a dip in prehistory to understand the life of millions of years ago!
