Rome, September 14, 2011 – February 12, 2012
More than 33 million visitors, more than sixty cities around the world. An apparition known as the stage set for a highlight of the movie, Casino Royale, the twenty-first adventure in the saga of 007. These are the numbers of Body Worlds – The real world of the human body: from September 14 shows the record arrives in Rome for the first time in Italy, Officine Farneto spaces, near the Olympic stadium. Body Worlds of Dr. Gunther von Hagens illustrates how the human body has never been done, making it accessible to the general public a series of information relating to medicine and anatomy, which otherwise would be relegated to the area of science. Thanks to the technique of “plastination”, invented and patented by the same von Hagens, which preserves tissues and organs to replace body fluid silicone polymers, you can see about 200 authentic specimens of the human body: an innovative way to know the mechanisms viable operation of the equipment, such as cardiac or respiratory and show the differences between healthy and diseased organs. A direct way to disseminate and educate on issues of health, wellness, proper nutrition. “Death is a normal and is part of life, is life to be exceptional”, said von Hagens. And how extraordinary the human body and its operation could not be described any better than that: the performance of the anatomy, for the first time, under the eyes of all. Body Worlds is the only exhibition dedicated to the human anatomy, with its own donation program by the Institute for Plastination care of the bodies, which has about 13000 registered donors.
