Built in a former nail factory, today it has been converted from an industrial site to a cultural and technological center: that is, since 1999, the Muvita Museum, an innovative project, developed over four floors.
A living museum, based on environmental values and sustainable development, it offers to the public, in particular to schools, the opportunity of a direct contact with science, environment and technology through interactive and captivating installations.
The first two floors are used as an exhibition space: at the ground level it’s located the climate and energy area. Each visitor can directly experience the scientific adventure of identifying possible strategies to face the phenomena due to global warming. Don’t miss to try the interactive machines on weather, climate and the greenhouse effect, and also energy technologies at the "stage" corner.
At the first floor there’s the Haven area, dedicated to the reconstruction of the wreck that involved the Haven (11-14 April 1991) and the prototype of the wire-guided underwater vehicle (ROV Phantom II). This section, besides a rich array of historical background and scientific panels, includes terminals to access databases concerning the disaster and the problems related to marine pollution by oil spill.
The third floor is intended to support services: media, biochemical laboratory, etc..
The Auditorium is at the fourth floor: a convention center with up to 130 seats, entirely paneled in wood and with a perfect acoustic, ready to host conferences, conventions but also shows, concerts, exhibitions, events.
