Scienza Illumina will be open until May 31st, 2016 a scientific and artistic path focusing on light as a starting point for thinking on the major issues of sustainability, development and innovation.
La Scienza Illumina is an exhibition realized in occasion of the International Year of Light by the Faculty of Mathematics, Physical and Natural Sciences of the University of Rome, La Sapienza museum pole, INFN, Mondo Digitale Foundation, Fondazione Idis-Città della Scienza and Le nuvole theatre.
It is realized by a team made up of teachers, makers, artists, and technology experts in order to show Light in all its aspects.
Divided into three main sections (geometrical optics, physical optics and quantum mechanics), the exhibition includes interactive installations and performances.
