The exhibition centres on the greatness of dams, bridges, tunnels, railways and roads built by Salini Impregilo. A multisensory journey, made of immersive experiences, which speak of work-related stories and of challenges that at times seemed impossible to meet. 

Through a multi-sensory journey the exhibition represents  the immensity of large-scale  infrastructure: dams, bridges, tunnels, railways and roads that have marked the evolution of Mankind during the last century. 

A journey through images and immersive experiences, which narrate  inspirational stories of work in Salini Impregilo construction sites, and of challenges that at times seemed impossible to meet. Work culture merging with the dream for a better future.

It’s a representation of the Italian genius and creativity, renowned worldwide, a legacy and a  global heritage.

The exhibition illustrates Man’s work, the strength and distinctiveness  used for building such gigantic works. It also tells the story of the continuous innovation of the work carried out  a mixture of technology and craftsmanship. It shows the skills that make each project unique: projects which at times required a  work force of  more than 10,000 people, often in extremely challenging conditions.

A profession recalled by Primo Levi, who described the work carried out by the person who travels the world to build infrastructure in places on the boundaries of reality, “with his socket wrench hanging from his belt, because for us it’s what a sword was for the knights in olden times.” 

The exhibition tells the story of distant moments, in different worlds. It does this through photos, videos and multimedia projections. Visitors will be able to penetrate the  installations, like the dam that divides the exhibition  into two great areas to be explored.

In the first area visitors will be able to immerse themselves into the reality of how great infrastructure works were built, thanks to the imagery from an unrivalled archive. belonging to Salini Impregilo, the global leader in complex large-scale  infrastructure. This vast  image library  goes from the early  years of the 20th century, to project visitors into the future.

The second area will introduce visitors to the experience of  a real worksite, through the single gestures of workers, to the complexity of team work: complex professions, which are often not very well known.  An immersive journey evoking a  symphony of sounds, lights, images to be activated by the actual visitors, to discover what infrastructure is made of and how a bridge, a dam, a cultural centre, or a tunnel and a railway can change a nation’s history forever.
