The exhibition Let's give the numbers! - A 3D journey through Fingers, Dice and Data: a fascinating interactive exhibition to discover the world of mathematics and numbers through games and stories. Figures, data, averages, errors, surveys, risk assessments: today we are called to deal more and more with the numbers and even if we can delegate these concerns to others, learning to use and understand the numbers helps us to orient ourselves in the world and take conscious decisions.

A major exhibition dedicated to the changes that have marked the way we eat and the complexity of the food system.

The protagonists are the people: each of us in his/her relationship with food. Food production professionals, researchers and industry experts, teenagers and adults were all involved in the design of the exhibition.

Sharing, change, relationships and technology are the key words through which the Museum interprets the theme of Expo 2015.
