Gemelli ART - Gemelli Hospital, Rome

Sala di Radioterapia Pediatrica Aquarius

A large work of over 300 square metres created by the artist SILVIO IRILLI.

When the young patients enter the corridor, they will dive into the seabed where they will meet many friends to encourage them such as dolphins, turtles and colourful fish.

They will then enter the room where the accelerator has become a submarine where they will find a set of controls, radar, a treasure map and their most important challenge will begin.

Thanks to donations from non-profit organisations, companies and thousands of people from all over Italy and abroad, it will be less scary for young patients to have therapy.
