Some large pink shells, the
ones of the Strombus species, are approached to the public’s ears by the museum’s staff,
giving to the visitors the opportunity to hear the sound of the sea directly from their hands.
This is a simple gesture, familiar to everyone, a gift that can be traced back to a common and collective memory. The
evocation of an intimate sound, of an element present in everyone’s life and easily recognisable, even if invisible: water.
