SCIENTIFIC EXHIBIT: GEOTHERMAL POWER - BREATHS OF ENERGY

geotermiaThe exhibit created and produced by Vulcano Esplorazioni is dedicated to Geothermal Phenomena and Power andit was one of the highlights of the Science Festival 2009 in Genova. We worked together with INGV (Italian Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology). THe event took place in the central LOGGIA DEGLI ABATI, inside PALAZZO DUCALE, in Genova, from October 23rd to November  until June 19th, 2011, the exhibit is open to the public in the town of Pavullo nel Frignano, inside the historical Palazzo Ducale. We worked with the teachers and students of Istituto di Istruzione Superiore Cavazzi Sorbelli (a high school) interested to spread knowledge about green energies and the environment.

 

 

As regards the didactic path,the exhibit is made of 40 images printed on big panels and spectacular videos that explain where, how and why geothermal phenomena occur, the link between geothermal reservoirs, volcanoes, magmatic masses that never became volcanoes and are cooling deeply underground, and the warmth that Mother Earth releases naturally. The aim is to let people discover and deepen a  matter  so  relevant for our future through a gallery of highly evocative images.

The exhibit displays also some dioramas: a geyser  1:1 scale, that we realized together with the preparers of Milano Natural History Museu, and which is a copy of a section of an Icelandic geothermal area, with boiling mud pools and a steam spout; smaller scale dioramas explain other phenomena.

As series of didactic panels explain how we can gain benefit and energy from the Earth underground warmth, how this resource can be used as clean and inexhaustible energy.

 

As per your specific needs, we'll be glad to customize the exhibit studying for you the best setting and timing. Usually we suggest the following options:

- PHOTOGRAPHIC EXHIBITION

- PHOTOGRAPHIC EXHIBIT PLUS DIDACTIC SAMPLES (rocks and dioramas)
 
- PHOTOGRAPHIC EXHIBIT, DIDACTIC SAMPLES AND A CONFERENCE WITH AUDIO-VIDEOS
