World day of life at Città della Scienza to discover all living beings – February 3rd – 4th

On the occasion of the World Day of Life to be celebrated on February 4th, Città della Scienza dedicates an entire weekend to the richness, variety and coexistence of various forms of life on  Earth. We will go to the discovery of all living beings: from the microscopic to the most complex ones, like man is. Several fun and engaging laboratories, activities and scientific demonstrations. Look at the program!


Increasingly, investigations on  crimes find a turning point when killer’s DNA are extraced in traces of blood or other biological fluids, in order to compared with that of possible assassin! Be a RIS agent, analyze a crime scene and conduct a real investigation in search of the assassin with the laboratory “Chemistry and life: scene of crime!” The word “Bon-sai” (often mistakenly pronounced as bonzai or banzai) is a Japanese term which, literally translated, means “planted in a vase”. Saturday and Sunday find out more about this ancient technique with  “Bonsai: how to plant a tree in a vase” and “Kokedama: the magical world of plants without vase “ an opportunity to realize musk pearls with small flowering plants  .

Do you know how life was born on our planet ? Is there the possibility that life exists elsewhere in the cosmos? With “Vital Space” have fun playing with a multimedia lab. At Città della Scienza, chemistry, a fascinating and mysterious subject, will also be accessible to children! With “Chemistry of molecules“: games, construction activities, models to be manipulated to know the world of the infinitely small that surrounds us and the fundamental molecules of living beings.

A single drop of water can hide an extraordinarily various  microcosm. But which kind of water? Discover the world invisible to the naked eye, rich in a multitude of forms belonging to different groups of the animal and plant world with “Life in a drop of water“.


Nature through sounds, colors, smells and landscapes has been a source of inspiration for great artists for years. Learn the secrets, the most hidden curiosities of the landscape that surrounds us and creates figures and drawings using natural elements through the lab “Between science and art: draw with nature”  and discover the artist in you! Talking abou Life means talking about  plants! Plants are the living beings that make our life on Earth possible. With “Making a tree” you can learn more about the secret life of plants, the phases of the life cycle and with the help of a fantastic App, build a beautiful herbarium to take home!

In addition to the guided tours of a Corporea, the first interactive museum on the Human Body in Italy, the 2D shows “From the Earth to the Universe” of the new Planetarium wait for you for a wonderful journey from the first theories of Greek philosophers to the most modern telescopes and “Robot Explorers” to travel together with a probe, lander and orbiter inside our solar system.

“Who lives in the newbag’s house?” – guided tours to discover new guests. The man known closely the giant Heteropterix dilatata, the wonderful African dry mantis mantis and the African mantis stick. Welcome to our new guest, the Chromatopelma cyanopubescens or green-blue tarantula!
