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.
