Artist Michelangelo Pistoletto and Michelin-three-star chef Niko Romito will introduce the new area of the Museum dedicated to aluminium. A permanent exhibition, designed and produced by the National Museum of Science and Technology, with main partner CIAL – Aluminium Packaging Consortium. The exhibition turns the spotlight on a light and energetic material: aluminium. Thursday, March 5 at 6:30pm, in a meeting open to the public, Pistoletto and Romito tell more about their professional experience in relation to this metal.
Aluminium is durable, light, malleable, a good conductor of electricity and heat, infinitely recyclable. This new exhibition highlights the properties and the many visible and hidden uses of this metal and of its alloys. Packaging, transport, construction, industry, durable products: aluminium is valuable in all fields.
The exhibition helps visitors to see and touch aluminium in its various aspects, processes and finishes, appreciating its beauty and versatility.
The industrial processes of yesterday and today, and a comparison between the production from mineral and that from scrap, are shown through inspiring historical objects – some of which have been restored for the occasion – and original videos from manufacturing plants.
