Arthropoda – Incredible Bugs


Exhibition on insects of the world.

Insects, for their small size and for the very few things that the general public knows about them, are often ignored or more often feared and killed. Science fiction drew inspiration from them to imagine terrible and threatening alien forms. Mosquitoes, flies, cockroaches, bedbugs etc. they haunt us every day, yet other insects amaze us with their beauty and elegance: butterflies and some spectacular beetles have always fascinated humans for their colors and harmony of shapes. Collectors pay fortunes for them. The art and science in the insect perfectly combine in a whole that fascinates us for the colors and the fantasy of the shapes but which also disturbs us for the harshness of their lives sometimes so similar to ours. Already other insect exhibitions in the past have attempted to unravel its mysteries, but only now, for the first time in Europe, will it be possible to enter their world without fear and see them directly in their splendor without the use of microscopes: exclusively, a series of highly accurate scientific and didactic models up to 3 meters in size, will allow visitors, young and old, to see our little world with new eyes.
