In 1888, a small group of adventurers, scientists and explorers set out to discover the world, its wonders and mysteries. They walked through inaccessible jungles, reached the poles, plunged into the abyss, conquered the Himalayas, discovered the secrets of the animal world and looked to the stars. Very quickly, they told and photographed what they saw in a modest bulletin that would become the National Geographic magazine, now world-famous and distributed in more than seventy-five countries.

This exhibition retraces the highlights of more than 130 years of adventure through a hundred photos. Six themes, supported by video reports, are presented:


  1. Farther, higher, deeper (The assault on the Himalayas, the depths of the oceans, 20,000 leagues under the sea, the intoxication of the depths, to the stars, we walked on the moon).
  2. On the trail of the lost worlds
  3. Epic times (the yellow cruise and the megatransect)
  4. The photographic adventure (five exceptional photographers)
  5. Approaching the animal world
  6. Eight iconic National Geographic portraits.


National Geographic is an international brand with great potential for teens, young adults and foreign tourists. These photos have a great educational value, retracing major elements of the 20th century or talking about our planet and its environment.
