Fondazione Idis-Città della Scienza
Mainstay of Città della Scienza, the SCIENCE CENTER belongs to the new generation of the science museums (tradition that was inaugurated with the Exploratorium in San Francisco in 1969) and its main objective is to provide to the public, especially to young people and "outsiders", meetings about science and technology.
The approach used consists in transforming the scientific concept in an attractive and engaging message in order to overcome the common thought that considers science as a sterile and not easily comprehensible notion, and it prefers the appropriation of the scientific method and social participation in the choices of civilization (which involve an increasing use of technology). One of the key points of our theoretical approach lies in overcoming the separations, often artificial, between the different fields of knowledge. By the use of a multidisciplinary approach it is possible to build educational and training pathways able to give back the man and the nature through culture, their wonderful complexity. Quality, cultural and scientific exactness, high educational value, clever fun and exciting communication, make our Science Centre the right place, for its content, for an audience of every age and cultural level, where art, architecture and technology melt themselves in an innovative offer that stimulates the visitor's curiosity even of the more demanding and more attentive one to the language of communication.
