The world premiere of the documentary dedicated to La Mente Meditante, the art-science performance that made the meditating brain’s neural processes visible to the public.

La Mente Meditante (The Meditating Mind) is an experimental project produced by MAXXI and conceived by the naturalist biologist Daniel Lumera, which involved the Museum’s public and many guests, together with the team of researchers led by Professor Giacomo Rizzolatti of the Institute of Neuroscience of the National Research Council (CNR).
