Throughout my professional activities at the Museo Regionale di Scienze Naturali I have often carried out many exhibits. In fact, I strongly believe that the museological activities are a strong tool to diffuse knowledge on the natural history and overall phenomena, and on the conservation of our planet’s biodiversity.
Most recently, I acted as curator of the exhibit entitled ESTINZIONI biodiversita’ dei vertebrati in allarme rosso. This exhibit, carried out in the period 22th November 2017 – 14 February 2018, was the result of a collaborative effort of MRSN, MUSE Museo delle Scienze di Trento, Zoological Museum in Padua, and Fem2, a spinoff of University of Milano Bicocca. This project, which was entitled PROGETTO ESTINZIONE, got financial support of MIUR (Ministero dell’istruzione, dell’università e della ricerca).
The exhibit was particular successful, due to the high number of visitors (around 20,000 in 3 months) and the participation of several scientists, museologists and politicians. The sad effects of biodiversity erosion were shown and indications were provided in respect to the role of natural history museums.
