Time Machines The journey through the universe starts with you25 November 2023__24 March 2024

Time Machines is an exhibition about Italian astrophysics and astronomy. What awaits you is a journey through the universe created to make you find out the new frontiers of modern astrophysics and how much Italy is behind the latest great discoveries and incredible images of the cosmos.
Time Machines is a pop exhibition of images, sounds and words that emerge through the best technologies available and with a modern, accessible and inclusive language. It is a journey that will introduce the public to the main Italian research body for the study of the universe, and that wants to play between the old and the new, with an 80s style, but with contents projected into the future.
This journey is possible thanks to the futuristic man-crafted time machines that observe ever closer to the beginning of everything from the most remote places on the planet to space: large telescopes and big research infrastructures.
