The Beauty of Imaging.
Bracco, 90 years of future

27 MAY - 2 JUL 2017

Tuesday - Sunday
10.30 am - 8.30 pm
Palazzo della Triennale
From the union between art and science comes the inspiration for an exhibition which celebrates the beauty “within” the human body, created by the Bracco Group, world leader in contrast agents, on the occasion of its foundation’s 90th anniversary.

To look inside the human body has always been one of the great challenges of medical science. Over the centuries we have strived to observe and understand the processes which govern our organism, in the conviction that within the physical body the deepest secrets of life would be concealed. From the discovery of X-rays to the present day this exploration has been made possible thanks to diagnostic imaging, one of the ten most important discoveries in the entire history of medicine.

From the allure of these images which lie between art and science, an exhibition has been created which invites the visitor to explore the extraordinarly harmonious composition of the human body, as seen from the inside. A journey rich in scientific innovation and major protagonists in the field, an itinerary which revisits the most significant discoveries, from ancient to recent, with visuals that reveal the spellbinding magic of life’s deepest secrets.

The historical context underlines how modern diagnostics is the result of the scientific community’s selfless global exchange of know how, which took place during the course of the twentieth century, even in times of sociopolitical turmoil.
The heart of the exhibition is a large central table dedicated to the research carried out on contrast agents, a modern “wunderkammer” (cabinet of curiosities/chamber of wonders) along with technological support to re-live the experiences of the researcher spanning the present and the future.
The visitor is invited to take a plunge into the four technologies used in diagnostics: X-rays/CT, Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine and Magnetic Resonance. Large interactive screens show the technologies in a visual style that is clear and enlightening.
Finally, in the theatre a video with music and holographic effects accompanies the visitor in a journey through the human body, a journey that signifies above all a great voyage in learning and in Man’s desire for knowledge.
