Homo sapiens. The great history of human diversity tells where we came from and how we managed, migration by migration, to populate the entire planet, constructing a kaleidoscopic mosaic of current human diversity.
Today for the first time, an international group of scientists has begun to connect the paths of ancient history that led our species to leave a small valley in Ethiopia less than 200,000 years ago to colonize the whole planet, region after region, spreading to form a wide variety of peoples and different cultures.
The exhibition consists of an emotional, dramatic and profound narrative that is continuous, with an interdisciplinary approach to human evolution and the history of human diversity. It follows a chronological order of events and situations, with each section based on a mix of different forms of expression: the valuable original objects (a fossil, a tool, an artifact, an ethnographic object) in plaster casts and copies; reconstructions of scenes and stories, spectacular models of hominids and huge extinct animals, interactive displays, immersive video and photo installations; geographical maps and topographic maps. Environmental lighting and sounds then complete the installation, enriching it with artistic suggestions.
