As usual this year Città della Scienza will celebrate the biodiversity day on May 22nd. When we think of biodiversity we usually think of the rainforests, coral reefs and tropical countries; you can actually realize the value of biodiversity also at home in your daily lives- just be able to look at it! A series of guided tours and scientific investigation conducted by our experts will introduce visitors to some of the most interesting topics related to local biodiversity, ranging from marine organisms, plants, insects and microscopic algae.
