Capire il cambiamento climatico – Experience exhibition
Telling the environmental threat that looms over our planet, participating in the international mobilization to guarantee a green future for the new generations: the National Archaeological Museum of Naples will take the field for the environment, promoting, from 10 October 2019 to 31 May 2020, “Understanding climate change - Experience exhibition ”, a narrative and experiential space in which visitors will discover the causes and effects of global warming.
Produced by the OTM Company and Studeo Group, in collaboration with the National Geographic Society, the exhibition is organized with the scientific curatorship of Luca Mercalli, President of the Italian Meteorological Society. Hundreds of images, including shots of great masters of photography and National Geographic films, will be the precious contribution used to create immersive environments, enriched by olfactory and sensorial experiences: in the view path, set up in rooms 91-93 of the MANN near the famous Salone della Meridiana, the visitor will be pushed to become an active part in an experience that, from emotion, will lead to awareness, inviting to action.
The images of National Geographic, selected over a period of three decades precisely to demonstrate the unstoppable progression of climate change, are the result of the work of great masters, among whom it is necessary to remember, at least: the Canadian Paul Nicklen, awarded for five times to World Press Photo.
