The exhibition ‘Through the eyes of the Wolf’ comes to Milan. An immersive experience to speak about coexistence

6 September 2023
Regione Lombardia

The immersive exhibition Through the eyes of the wolf, realised within the framework of the LIFE WolfAlps EU project, arrives in Milan and can be visited from Monday 11 September until 15 October at the @Spazio Isola-Set of Regione Lombardia (P.zza Città di Lombardia 1 – 20124 Milan). The immersive experience is a new and engaging way to bring the public to reflect on the themes of coexistence between humans and wolves, experiencing what it means to “feel in each other’s shoes”. Composed of visual and sound suggestions, it allows you to enter the mind of a wolf in dispersion and experience its day of encounters and confrontations, new discoveries and trials. Thanks to immersive technology and a sensorial and empathic approach, visitors to the exhibition will thus be transported to a “special” place, which takes the form of natural places familiar to man, experienced, however, with the difficulties, emotions and needs of a wild animal.

The challenge of coexistence lies at the heart of the LIFE WolfAlps EU project and is the content heart of the exhibition, which conveys it in an unprecedented way, inviting humans to exchange roles with wolves for the first time.

Admission is free of charge; viewing lasts about 15 minutes and groups of 10 people at a time are allowed in.

In addition to the immersive exhibition, there will be educational activities for schools (weekdays), for families (weekends) and a scientific conference on the exhibition days.

In particular, the didactic activity “The wolf between legend and reality” has been programmed for school groups and families: a route, suitable for children from 6 years of age and upwards, which aims to introduce the wolf with a neutral approach, without demonising or deifying it. Between information panels and theoretical and practical activities, carried out with the help of young environmental educators, participants will be accompanied on this route, which offers scientifically certified content and provides the necessary elements for understanding the wolf’s natural return, its role in the ecosystem and its coexistence with man.

  • Monday to Friday: 9.30 to 11.30 a.m., possibility of educational activities for schools (reservation required);
  • Saturdays and Sundays (weekends 16/17 – 23/24 September and 30/09/1 – 7/8 – 14/15 October): from 9.30 a.m. to 6.30 p.m., for individual visits, workshop activities dedicated to families (17 September, 1 October and 15 October, advance booking required) and a scientific conference suitable for all audiences (1 October, advance booking required).
