Numbers, and the Future of food at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome

At the Palazzo delle esposizioni in Rome, with a single ticket, it’s possible to visit two interesting exhibitions, “Numbers all that counts from zero to infinity” and “Food, the future of food

The exhibition “the Future of Food” of National Geographic, collects more than 90 photographs taken around the world with charts and texts that highlight all the problems associated to nutrition,
such as: food waste, the impact that the livestock holdings and agriculture have on the climate, the land, the forests and the consequent increase of aquaculture.
The need for more food in a world increasingly populated, brings serious dangers to the air we breathe and the waters of the planet and to our future.
In the exhibition are then highlighted possible solutions to solve the problem of food: make land productive and use resources more efficiently, diet change, reduce waste, trying in this way to
achieve a new balance between resources, nutrition and population .

The exhibition “Numbers, all that counts from zero to infinity” is deticated to the fascinating universe of numbers that is told through artifacts and precious multimedia installations to engage visitors in the discovery of this theme.
The exhibition begins by giving the visitor an idea of numbers showing how to “count” and “record” have evolved and how they are different from place to place.
Are then described and shown calculation tools, designed and built by the men of every age, to try to overcome their limitations of understanding and knowledge.
Are then treated the numbers “pure” than “applied”, that is, to those that allow us to measure.
The path ends by reflecting on the abstract dimension of the numbers.
