Real Bodies is a fascinating journey through the most important thing we possess: the human body. Under the skin is a set of complex apparatus and associated organs, working together – second by second – to keep us healthy and alive. Real Bodies is a brand new exhibition which has never been seen before. After the overwhelming success in Milan, with more than 280,000 visitors, the event arrives in Rome with an exclusive special edition. There are over 350 organs and real human bodies on display. You can find organs affected by serious diseases as well as an entire section focused on human reproduction where a great emotional impact is guaranteed. The most fascinating section is the athletes’ gallery which displays 12 real bodies immortalized in different sports anatomical positions like football, basketball, long jump, dance and fencing so as to enhance the understanding of our muscular and skeletal system.
The event takes place in an innovative exhibition space of over 2,000 square metres and guides visitors to find out where the organs of our body are positioned, how they work, their size and how they are actually made. Real Bodies is a live encyclopedia of the human body, a cultural and scientific exhibit aimed at showing the profound changes faced by our organs when they’re affected by serious diseases or aging metamorphosis. Its primary goal is to explain the human body in a simple way, suitable for everyone: professionals, families with children, school groups and students of all levels. A scientific, revelatory and unique event allowing visitors to discover the most fascinating things in our body that would otherwise be unthinkable.
