The exhibition is divided into four sections, corresponding to the different floors of the building. On the ground floor, the first section has as its theme the landscape of the valleys, referring above all to the sense of their crossing, to the permanence of a traditional agriculture that coexists with the volcanic soil of the region.
The second section, on the second floor, deals with the geological nature of the place in relation to the different forms of rock settlements that characterize the present architectures, religious and civil buildings, which follow one another in space and time.
The third section, on the second floor, gives an account of the surprising pictorial heritage that characterizes the interiors of the churches and other buildings excavated in the rock, and of the work of the Mission of the University of Tuscia engaged for decades on this front of research, restoration and enhancement.
The themes of the first three sections are narrated mainly by photographs and texts, while the fourth section consists of a cinematographic narration, with the screening of the documentary film Güllüdere e Kızılçukur: la Valle delle Rose e la Valle Rossa in Cappadocia, directed by Davide Gambino, with Gabriele Gismondi, conceived and produced by the Benetton Foundation Research Centre as part of the activities of the Carlo Scarpa Prize.
On the same days and at the same times, the bookshop of Ca' Scarpa will also be open, offering publications edited and published by the Benetton Foundation Research Centre, dedicated in particular to the study of landscape and the care of places, but also to play and the history of play, cultural heritage and the history of the Veneto region.
