Corporea at Città della Scienza, Naples, Italy

A new permanent exhibition opened to the public on 4 March.

Starting from the infinitely little secrets of the human body, to reach huge and mainly unexplored ones of the universe that we see looking up. Two journeys  - the perfect machine of our body and the space between stars and planets - to learn, experiment, have fun and learn.

Four years after the fire that destroyed the science centre, once again Città della Scienza gets its leading role to combine knowledge, education and entertainment, with two openings: Corporea the first European interactive museum dedicated to the human body and Dome 3D, the largest and most advanced planetarium of Italy.

Over 5.000 square meters on three levels, 14 thematic islands (from cardio circulatory apparatus to digestive system, from the sexual and reproductive to the five senses), about 100 exhibits, exhibitions, big installations and interactive stations. Corporea is also a journey through time, which links past and future into a single thread: on the one hand beautiful archaeological and historical findings, on the other hand the new frontier of digital manufacturing, with a 3D printer to create some anatomic files and displaying fully 3D printed implants.
