From subatomic particles to the Universe: it is a journey without limits of size that is proposed by the multimedia science exhibition “Vedere l’invisibile. Dall’infinitamente piccolo all’infinitamente grande” organised by the Sistema Museale dell’Università di Parma and held at the APE Parma Museo (Strada Farini, 32/A).
The exhibition will be open to the public from 29 October to 15 January 2023.
The leitmotif of the exhibition covers an exceptional range of scales of dimensions from the subatomic particles of the infinitely small to the extreme distances of the Universe of the infinitely large, passing through the invisible, in its manifold nature: within the human body, the ground, the surface of planets and even in the humanities.
An invisible that can be explored through augmented reality, the display of historical instruments, projected images and videos, with interactive exhibits and explanatory panels. Workshops for schools and conferences are also on the agenda.
The topics covered by the exhibition are those studied in the laboratories and departments of the University of Parma and developed, in many cases, in national and international collaborations by the University’s researchers and lecturers.
The exhibition is divided into six main sections: Room Zero: The infinitely close, immersed in the everyday The invisible because infinitely small The invisible because hidden The invisible large and small in children’s di-signs Cross-section ‘Science and the imaginary. Writing, drawing, thinking the invisible”.
The exhibition is organised with the patronage of Comune di Parma and the collaboration of the Fondazione Monteparma, Ministero dell’Università e della Ricerca, Istituto dei Materiali per l’Elettronica e il Magnetismo del Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche di Parma, Istituto di Astrofisica e Planetologia Spaziali dell’Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica di Roma, VIRGO, European Gavitational Observatory e Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare.
