LA VITA PERIODICA - Project born like a tool that can be added to textbooks. making their contents much more understandable by using graphics and animations. What we tried to do was to transform textual and numerical data in visual form, trying to mantain original informations.

The project was designed within the platform RSC (Royal Society of Chemistry).
