Our first experience of something happens through vision. This often holds for scientific research as well, where quantitative data have to be rendered in images to be understood. In this exhibition, biological molecules and those who study them are observed through illustrations, photographs, and images, in a visual dialogue among nature, the data it provides us, and the picture we get from them. 

Admission to the exhibition is free during library opening hours.

The exhibition organizers will take part in the opening ceremony along with:  

Franco Dalfovo, Director of the Department of Physics of University of Trento
Alice Lotti, graphic designer  
Nicola Zanella, Director of IT and Library services of University of Trento

Light refreshments will be available during the opening ceremony.
