Before and After the Disappearance of the Dinosaurs

Through the use of spectacular life-sized models, fossils, casts, explanatory panels (written also in English) and multimedia displays – such as Paco Lanciano’s Quadrisphere – the Extinction exhibition recounts the story of life on Earth by focussing on the theme of mass extinction. Ample space has been given to species discovered in Italy, to research carried out in this country and to the behind the scenes, that is to say the work done by palaeontologists and palaeoartists on ancient bones and with novel technologies to “bring back to life” dominators of a lost world. The route through the exhibition ends with a section on the timeless appeal of dinosaurs as icons in the collective imagination and as major protagonists in popular culture.
