This paper discusses the possibility of representing research activity as a narrative path starting from an experimentation field. The aim is to test and verify connections between social space and the construction of images of the world through the building and perception of specific language in the narrative dimension of research. The field work we present has been carried out as an installation art in Borromini’s Crypt in Rome, and is the example of rendering the story-dimension of research through a medium, a narrative technology in constant progress and evolution. In this way research activity can be presented as ascent and descent, as a mix of light and darkness, in multiple symbolic ways and different values. The Research and Inhabited Image Project (RIA) is in this dimension conceived as a story of stories, not as a research communication work.
