Big Bang Exhibition in Rome


In the beginning…

imageThere was a big “explosion” which filled the entire space and generate the Universe. That’s according to the model of the Big Bang Theory. The Theory however describes how it is growing the Universe, not as it commences. 

That is to be considered the unsolved mistery of misterys, along the history the human race tried different explanations for it, but we are now just at the beginning point to have it.


The very beginning (who is taking the photograph?)

Recently, in an underground laboratory, buried a hundred meters below the border between France and Switzerland, scientists developed the greatest, ambitious and expensive scientific testing of all times- CERN, using a collider, the biggest and most imagecomplex machine ever built (with the cost of more than €6bn). It has been 14 years in the making to recreate the conditions in the seconds after the ‘Big Bang’ that created the universe.

The experiment gas been developed only in its firt phase, the whole idea is interesting, its aim more than exciting but there are opponents to the experiment, that declared that this way of unlock secrets about the universe and its origins can be dangerous, for it will create little black holes with enough power to destroy the entire planet.

What can we do? First: relax and keep cool, remember 1910 and the comet, nothing happened at last so don’t worry. Second: if you visit Rome there is an interesting art exhibition about the beginning of the universe that mixes science and art to give more a sensation than an explanation on the matter.


The creation, as from Michelangelo’s point of view.

The birth of pure form and the idea of form in motion, psychedelic cosmology , the planets, galaxies and the explosion, representations of a Newtonian universe and its universal symbols of power, the uncontrolled chaos before creation,. the light as a metaphor of the moment of passage from life to death, shown as that energy that is released from a body that loses the breath of life, etc. These are only some examples of the imagesubjects you will find in the exhibition.
