The impressive ‘Real Bodies’ exhibition reaches Milan after touring all around the world. The exhibition, spread over a surface of 2,000 s.m., boasts 40 real corpses and 300 organs including both healthy and ill parts of the body targeted at highlighting the effects of bad habits on human beings as well as to increase the knowledge of the most hidden parts of the body. All the corpses and organs have undergone a plastination process in order to keep their shapes and texture unaltered and are laid to recall natural moves, so that visitors can experience a better understanding of movement and, by comparing the ill organs with the healthy ones, can understand the damages of smoke, unhealthy nutrition and poor physical activity. The exhibition is divided into different sections, each one featuring a specific focus on a part of the body, and is now enriched by the unique plastinated body of a man over one hundred years old to show visitors how the passing of time changes a man’s body features.
