Titanic – The Artifact Exhibition is an exhibition dedicated to the biggest and most famous ocean ship in the history: theTitanic.
It is held in Turin from Saturday March 18 UP TO FRIDAY JULY 21ST
The Titanic ship sunk in April 1912 because of a collision with an iceberg while it was transporting 2.228 passengers and 1.500 of them died in the cold seas of the North.

Between 1987 and 1994, many expeditions were organized which recover more than 4.000 pieces of wreck at the bottom of the ocean.
The exhibition involves the visitors with the ship engine noises and by listening to the personal stories of the passengers and crew (from the millionaire of the first class to the immigrants of the third class) and by letting know the reasons of their journey in America.
There are authentical pieces of the ship, passengers’ objects, the riconstruction in real scale of a fisrt class cabin and a third class one, the main bridge, and video clips of that time .
Moreover a real wall of ice is displayed which revives to the visitor the cold conditions of the first hours of the morning in April 15 1912.
At the end of the path a memorial wall that remembers the names of all the passengers, both the victims and the survivors of the unlucky journey of the Titanic.
