WHAT COMES FROM WHAT. THE LIFE-CYCLE OF PRODUCTS

The National Museum of Science and Technology "Leonardo da Vinci" presents the interactive display "What comes from what The life-cycle of products", realized with his partner Amsa and Centro di Coordinamento RAEE. The new permanent area showcases updated contents and offers the public the opportunity to challenge with new interactive exhibits.



The purpose of the display  is to explore and make people think over  concepts like Life-cycle of products and Life-cycle Analysis. In this way Museum aims to increase people awareness  about the issues related to a topic such as the sustainability of products: to make a correct analysis of the advantages and disadvantages connected to the design of a product, it’s necessary to study its environmental, economic and social impact during its entire life-cycle. In this way making aware civil and social choices every day becomes possible.



The display   presents  5 areas  dedicated respectively to project design, manufacturing, distribution, use and disposal. Each area has a number identifying the stage in the life-cycle. Project design, not formally included in the life-cycle, is number zero because of its basic role. Manufacturing and Use are just mentioned, since examined in depth in other  displays of the Museum. Disposal plays  the main role because is a life-cycle stage  closer to people but often unclear to them.

Life-cycle is also  the inspiring theme of two site-specific  artworks “Relazioni tra componenti” (Relationships among components) by Andrea Sarzi Braga and “Monumento all’uomo” (Monument to human) by Crash Toys - of Dario Tironi and Koji Yoshida- in in the Disposal  area.
A  small movie theatre with 20 seats and a flexible program also finds place in order to offer the opportunity to visitors  to select their favorite movie and pleasantly broaden their knowledge of the topic.
