“Casa de Oswaldo Cruz and the Museu da Vida carry the tradition of Manguinhos at their birth, where the rigor of scientific work is mixed with aesthetics, art and the urgency of communication, which goes beyond the limits of science to find its audience. Ever since the conception of the Museum of Life, we aimed to reinvent this legacy, with professionalism and a critical eye. One day, Virgínia Schall, scientist and poet, friend and dreamer of an innovative museum, brought the news: we would be interested in receiving a “tent ” that hosted Eco-92 activities? We already had our scenario! Science on the Scene! An exciting trajectory is portrayed here in this book. Science and its context under the spotlight. The public captured by emotion, drama, laughter and, always, beauty.”


— Paulo Gadelha, director of Casa de Oswaldo Cruz (1985-1997), responsible for implementing the Museum of Life and president of Fiocruz (2009-2016)
