On 15 April 1912 the world’s largest ocean liner sank: 2,228 passengers lost their lives in what is the most terrible tragedy in marine navigation history. Between 1987 and 1994, RMS Titanic organised many expeditions to recover the wreckage, bringing to the surface over 4,000 articles from the ocean floor. Today those objects form the essence of a travelling exhibition, for the first time in Italia, which has been a moving experience for everyone who has visited it, seeing the passengers and crew, hearing the roar of the boilers and a real wall of ice to understand the cold conditions of those early hours of the morning. Full-scale reconstructions have been made of a first class and third class cabin, together with the famous main deck. Films of the period are screened, while audio guides narrate the collision with the iceberg and the sinking of the “unsinkable” ship.
