MUSE – THE NEW SCIENCE MUSEUM OF TRENTO

Francesco Merlini has taken pictures of the last preparations of new museum of science that will open in Trento on July 27th 2013.

MUSE (acronym of MUseo delle ScienzE – Science Museum) is a latest concept centre for scientific culture diffusion. It combines the traditional interest in natural history and research, common to all natural science institutions, with specific attention to ethical and social topics and to current issues, such as the environment and sustainable development.

MUSE is located in an area of Trento that used to host an industrial site, and is now undergoing requalification.  The architectural project by the famous architect Renzo Piano is characterized by a refined, futuristic profile, a homage to the peaks of the mountains that surround Trento.
