Rethinking the living world and communicating with plants and animals: a series of films based around the "Being(s) together" exhibition. Temporary exhibition. Sunday 19 November at 5pm.

To coincide with the temporary exhibition "Être(s) ensemble" (Being together), which runs until 7 January 2024, a series of films will be on show until December 2023.

In the Piedmont region of Italy, 84-year-old Carlo Conella spends his time hunting for truffles. With the help of his dog, trained to sniff out the scent of the underground mushroom, he ventures into inaccessible mountainous regions, sometimes even risking his life.


Running time: 1 hour 24 minutes

Language: Italian with English subtitles.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Federica Tamarozzi, curator of the "Être(s) ensemble" exhibition.


  • Federica Tamarozzi : curator of the Europe Department at MEG and curator of the "Être(s) ensemble" exhibition
