ArtNANO

This photographic exhibit wants to describe, in an artistic way, the matter world based on nanometric scale and the interactions that nanoparticles could have with living systems. Thanks to powerful and polished microscopy techniques, we can see minuscule structures in the order of few nanometers, which are in close contact with cells, travelling inside them and inside the organisms, sometimes with total freedom of movement, sometimes strictly directed. The possibility of examine nanoparticles is a fascinating experience and it could be helpful to improve our awareness about matter and life’s mechanisms, and also about risks that humans and environment could run, due to indiscriminate nanotechnology usage.

Sometimes, watching the sub-microscopic great beauty that our eyes can see, could be enchanting.
