The coating, made by Jannelli&Volpi thanks to 'JWall tailor made custom in non-woven fabric, wraps the walls of the room.All the outfitting plays with the figure of the hexagon by leveraging on the aesthetic and playful component of the geometry.The new 'i.lab Mathematics' of the Museum looks like a next generation bar with parquet and design tables, and it will be part of the permanent offer of the Museum. It is an informal space that allows participants to have a relaxed approach, contrasting the prejudices that everyone has in relation to mathematics. The museum, officially inaugurated on 15th February 1953 with the exhibition on Leonardo da Vinci, is one of the most important in Europe and worldwide. It is also Europe's leader in informal education, and today counts 13 interactive workshops.
