Upon returning from this sensory exploration across the planet, we suggest that you land gently and gradually reconnect with the materiality of the world. Through interactive devices, large illustrated frescoes and the presentation of natural specimens, this museographic space invites you to decipher the experience you have had in the exhibition and to open up to broader reflections, questioning our place as human being within the globality of the living world and the “desirable futures” that are offered to us.
