The Nation of Plants
Curated by Stefano Mancuso
The Nation of Plants is a non-technical scientific show curated by Stefano Mancuso, one of the world's leading experts in plant neurobiology.
The exhibition is based on the idea that one of the ways to avoid a catastrophic future for humanity is to take a radically new approach to plants, using them not just for what they have to offer us, but also for what they can teach us.
Plants have been living on planet Earth for far longer than we have. They adapt better and will quite probably outlive us. In their evolution they have come up with solutions that are not just efficient but that do not prey upon the ecosystem in which we too live, together with them. The most recent studies in the realm of plants have shown that they have sense organs and memory and that they communicate with each other and thus can, to all intents and purposes, be considered as intelligent organisms.
The exhibition The Nation of Plants will unfold in the form of a spectacular and fascinating journey of learning through an imaginative and immersive experience with multimedia content. The artistic supervision of the exhibition will be by Marco Balich, the creative director of the Olympic ceremonies and major international shows.
