Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

 "We wanted to take the contents and the complex to the public, the most basic and heterogeneous. It was a great challenge and we did it by trusting the power of our imaginations, bringing together what every person has in common, two eyes, two arms and to explore and touch objects. To understand them through direct exploration, the way children learn when they arrive in this world.”

Organizers admit, it hasn't been easy to place every item, be it from metal, bronze or ceramic back in its place. So, some of the original items are displayed on the shelves of that very section of the Vatican Museum. Now, the next project could come in  3D.

 "We are completely open to ideas for the future. First, we need to see how the public reacts, if they are interested in this part of the Museum. Naturally, technology moves forward and we can imagine that this is a new frontier.”

The display also includes a soundtrack mixing older sounds with new ones. It includes music from flutes, bells and drums superimposed with cars, galloping horses or the crackling of fire.
