The exhibition Made in Math, opening February 26 at the MUSE – Science Museum of Trento, is aimed to disclose to the general public, especially to the many who have never appreciated it, how much mathematics influences our everyday life.

Mathematics plays a fundamental role in medicine, in the Internet, in transportation planning, in economy, and in sports – where mathematical models are used to help athletes improving their performances – and it has fostered knowledge by intertwining itself with arts, science, and social studies. By the means of multimedia installations and interactive exhibits, the exhibition also depicts the evolution of mathematical sciences from antiquity to the present.

By the means of multimedia installations and interactive exhibits, the exhibition also depicts the evolution of mathematical sciences from antiquity to the present.
In The Assayer, Galileo wrote that “the Book of Nature is written in the language of mathematics” and on such idea the way modern physics looks at the universe is still founded today. Furthermore, thanks to mathematics, during the Renaissance we have learned how to create reliable geographical maps, and to understand the rules of perspective.
