The project is based on the deep relations between art and the scientific evolution, from Parmigianino’s alchemy who became the starting point with one of his masterpieces, The wise and foolish virgins at the Steccata Church.

The exhibition, after an introduction with Duchamps works, is divided in two sections: one dedicated to the international artists who set up a renovation path when they met new exciting scientific discoveries, the other dedicated to significative contemporary artists who went on experimenting, inspired by the same questioning.

Workshops for school and guided tours will be scheduled, beside the Church of Steccata, the tour will include the old pharmacy San Filippo Neri.
