The Beauty of Imaging: the multimedia giant at Expo 2020 Dubai
The Beauty of Imaging is an imaginative portal that will accompany visitors to Expo 2020 Dubai on a long journey throughout the exhibition semester. The path starts from what is visible and goes, in an exploration "without a map", inside the human body up to the most infinitesimal elements that make it up.
Looking at “The Beauty of Imaging” one perceives beauty and harmony through the narration of one of the most relevant discoveries of contemporary medicine: diagnostic imaging.
From design to realization
The giant "The Beauty of Imaging" takes inspiration from the classical Greek proportions of the Riace Bronzes with a strong reference to the genius of Michelangelo, to Giovanni Battista Bracelli, engraver and painter of the '600, up to the' 900 and the reworking of forms by Picasso.
The Brain: what's behind The Beauty of Imaging
It was designed by Studio Giò Forma, Mauro Belloni and Cromazoo. The design starts with observing the human figure "looking at the harmony of the human body from the inside" as told by Mauro Belloni, content designer, in the video “The Brain: what's behind “The beauty of Imaging“, where the whole artistic vision of the multimedia work is traced back to its realization.
"We asked ourselves, “What If”, if it were possible, if we could go further, in the future and in the images. The Bracco company has put us in a position to collaborate with talents and as a team we have the task and the opportunity to create wonder. We try to help precisely that magical moment in which an ordinary thing, such as the human figure or images, becomes wonder, becomes extraordinary ". He said Florian Boje of the Giò Forma studio.
Bracco's journey towards the future
Looking beyond is not enough, we must "be" beyond. "Medicine is now increasingly personalized not only for diagnosis, but also for prognosis and to address the most effective therapy for the individual patient. This is why Bracco is also investing heavily in digital innovation, in artificial intelligence tools for analyzing radiological images. The relationship between health, medicine and technology ", adds Diana Bracco," is destined to be ever closer and the progressive hybridization of knowledge will allow the transition to the so-called '4P Medicine': predictivity, prevention, participation and personalization ".

And precisely at Expo 2020 Dubai, the Bracco Group will be protagonist in the medicine of the future and in Life Sciences showing visitors from all over the world multimedia scientific contents that highlight the importance of predictive and personalized medicine and in particular diagnostic imaging, one of the most relevant discoveries in contemporary medicine. The future? It starts from here.
