Tuscany has created a narrative space whose keywords are: Nature and Landscape, Art and Culture, Food, Innovation and Technology. The senses are the Leitmotif of the space: visitors can enjoy their personal experience through sight, hearing, touch and smell.

1. The video installation "Tuscany in a day" offers a virtual tour of a day in Tuscany, showing the most recognizable locations but also some unusual and unknown places.

2. The three libraries (expression of knowledge according to the Expo 2015 concept), host significant samples of Tuscan typical products and handicrafts, but also examples of innovation and research that make headlines around the world.

3. At Play Your Tuscany, the interactive area, you can watch, listen and download selected videos and audio-guides (mostly related to the four keywords Nature and Landscape, Art and Culture, Food, Innovation and Technology): another step of the trip in Tuscany, the land of Good Living!

Sight! Plants are amazing sensitive organisms. When subjected to external stimuli, plants produce electrical signals. We show how they react to human touch generating specific electrical responses, which are processed and transformed into colours and lights effects!

4. Finally, four "Tables of Experience" form the know-how area. Four experiments, based on hearing (Tuscany sound map), smell (chemistry of essences, recreating the aromas of some traditional products), sight (the reactions of plants to human presence will be materialized and displayed) and touch (marine robotic manipulators).

Tip: I highly recommend to download Appinocchio (available on Google play and App store). This app will guide you through a 15', 30' or 60' itinerary inside the stand.
