50 years after the Moon landing, the Spazio Innov@zione of the CRC Foundation (Cuneo) hosts an exhibition dedicated to the Apollo 11 mission to relive all the emotions linked to the space discovery.

Destination Moon. The future is now”,  Immersive Interactive Experience  is an innovative exhibition, in which past, present and future talk together and create a new and fascinating style. An extraordinary set up with a great visive and emotional impact lead the visitors through a narrative, multimedia and interactive path, developed with the aim to immerse the spectator in the history. The exhibition is thought as an exploration, which starts from the eternal doors, where the portholes reminds the ones of an International Space Station.

Thanks to a clear and technologically advanced visual audio language, is it possible to discover all the phases of the famous Apollo 11 mission, from the beginning to its extraordinary ending: the man’s landing on the Moon surface.

The real heart of the exhibition are the rooms, which are all provided with advanced interactive technologies, which make the walls alive: immersive 360° videos change and evolve with the touch of the visitors. New pop-up windows, graphics, galleries, virtual captions, historical insights, new images and everything that the imagination can create comes to life in a spectacular projection for an immersive experience.

High-definition full-wall projections  will tell the historical event, which occurred in 1969. The story in pictures about the Apollo 11 mission is the best starting point to explore the relationship between men and the space.

All the researches about the evolution of the space discovery, allow us to study the problems about our Planet, such as the Global Warming and its terrible consequences: the melting of the glaciers, the risk of extinction of animals such as polar bears, the great climatic upheavals ..

Moving reportages are showed through a multi projections wall which involves the visitor to with the aim of raising awareness of these important issues.

The exhibition end with the words of the famous astrophysics Stephen Hawking: “I am not denying the importance of fighting climate change and global warming, but we are running out of space and the only places to go to are other worlds”; moving words around which a spectacular and enveloping Wunderkammer was created. It is a real room of wonders, where you can see how past and present are strongly bounded trough the study of the sky and the hypothesis about our civilisation future. The ending looks at the future, with a special eye on young people and future generations.
