ScienzARTE! – April, 28th and 29th

Celebrazione della Giornata Mondiale del disegno

Arte e scienza nel tempo sono sempre state considerate come due binari paralleli aventi nessun punto di contatto. Tuttavia, questa concezione è sbagliata! Un grande artista è, spesso, uno scienziato che ha appreso le tecniche e ha perfetta conoscenza dei materiali di cui necessita per la sua arte. A Città della Scienza mostreremo in questo weekend, con laboratori entusiasmanti, lo stretto connubio tra arte e scienza. Cimentati nel disegno, pittura, scultura e modellazione e scatena l’artista che è in te!

scienzarte at città della scienza - 29 and 29 april 2018 _1200x628

Inoltre, non perdere il lato “artistico” di Città della Scienza: scopri in una visita guidata tematizzata le opere di arte contemporanee che arricchiscono i nostri spazi.
In una nuova era in cui l’uomo non riesce più a pensarsi senza macchine, l’artista partenopeo introduce l’elemento “extraumano” anche nell’arte, creando lavori pittorici che dalla mente passano alla macchina e da questa alla tela. Un nuovo modo di concepire e fare arte nel contemporaneo in cui il drone diventa tramite tra il pensiero e l’azione dell’artista! Sabato e domenica non perderti “Dario Di Franco | The drone experience” , una performance live di pittura con i droni e l’esposizione delle prime opere al mondo realizzate con questa tecnica!
E ancora, visita la Mostra nell’ambito del progetto “Art&Science across Italy”: avrai l’occasione di conoscere i giovani vincitori del progetto “Art&Science across Italy e i loro elaborati ispirati alle informazioni e alle suggestioni derivate dall’esperienza vissuta in un laboratorio di fisica dell’Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare e del CERN.
Solo per sabato 28 non perderti “Lo Smart Museum”: “sostituire” le guide museali con Smartphone e/o Tablet? Oggi si può grazie ad una applicazione realizzata da DATABENC Dipartimento di Alta Tecnologia per i Beni Culturali della Federico II. Tale iniziativa rientra nel progetto “L’Artistico – Casa Museo”. In armonia con la tradizione artistica, culturale e sociale, il progetto vuole consentire alla Comunità Territoriale la completa fruibilità dell’intero patrimonio raccolto nei 130 anni (3 secoli ‘800, ‘900 e 2000) attraverso acquisti, mostre, donazioni, ecc.
Ospite speciale di questo weekend sarà, inoltre, la Scuola CounseLis che ci proporrà un breve viaggio nella cultura sorda alla scoperta della Lingua dei Segni, esempio di arte e scienza. Non perdere il workshop esperienziale “La comunicazione. Scienza o Arte?”.
Solo per questo weekend Arte contemporanea per tutti!”: partecipa alla visita guidata alla scoperta delle straordinarie opere di arte contemporanea presenti a Città della Scienza! Avresti mai immaginato che nascoste negli spazi pubblici del nostro Science Centre puoi trovare opere di arte contemporanea? Vieni ad osservarle e avvicinati maggiormente a questa tipologia di arte spesso non di semplice lettura.
Il viso di un uomo/donna è il nostro biglietto da visita. Molto di più di un paio di occhi, un naso, una bocca e un paio di orecchie, il volto di ciascuno di noi parla. Ci trasmette emozioni, sensazioni, caratteristiche della nostra personalità. Scoprilo in questo laboratorio espressivo “Faccia da Picasso” e divertiti nel comporre un volto come farebbe il più celebre artista del Cubismo, Pablo Picasso. Le risate sono assicurate!

Basta un soffio per dipingere! “Dipingere con l’aria” ti insegnerà a comporre “quadri” coloratissimi e dal risultato imprevedibile semplicemente “modulando” il tuo respiro. Cosa aspetti?
Se pensiamo all’arte, immediatamente ci viene in mente il disegno, la forma più delicata, primitiva istintiva di arte. E allora perché non cimentarsi nel “Disegno Naturalistico”?. Osservare la natura che ci circonda è senz’altro bello, ma essere in grado di riprodurla su carta con le matite colorate lo è ancor di più. In compagnia di un esperto, apprendi i segreti, le curiosità e le tecniche per riprodurre in maniera più fedele possibile la bellezza della natura.
Non perdere infine, “Natura, pennelli e colori: quando l’arte incontra la biologia” per ripercorrere la storia del disegno naturalistico tra curiosità, esempi e aneddoti divertenti, ne vedrete di tutti i colori!
Kandiskij, Klee, Mondrian, Picasso e tanti altri pittori usavano cerchi, triangoli, quadrati, rette, rombi, rettangoli, trapezi e tanto altro ancora! Per loro queste forme erano in grado di comunicare,quasi come se fossero esseri viventi. Attraverso le figure geometriche, esprimevano i propri sentimenti più profondi. Ecco a voi i loro quadri e adesso insieme andiamo ad analizzare le numerose forme che ci vivono all’interno! Dopo aver osservato i quadri ci metteremo nei panni degli artisti e cercheremo di riprodurre le forme della geometria!Solo per questo weekend, Riga e compasso, altro che pennello!
Nuovamente visitabile la Mostra dedicata al Mare! Scopri quali nuovi pesci, molluschi e crostacei abitano le nostre vasche seguendo la visita guidata Ecosistemi marini”. Durante la visita, avrai la possibilità di accarezzare alcuni organismi marini vivi nella nostra Touch pool. Che emozione!
Per i più piccoli, “Inventa i tuoi animali marini, un laboratorio dove potrai colorare sagome di pesci, inventandoti nuove specie, e poi, come per “magia”, farle comparire e nuotare in un grande acquario virtuale.
Non perdere la visita guidata a Insetti&CO”, il nuovo spazio espositivo dedicato allo spettacolare mondo degli insetti e non solo. Per ogni uomo della Terra ci sono oltre 150 milioni di insetti. “I giganti a sei zampe” hanno conquistato quasi tutti gli habitat del nostro pianeta…. è il momento di cominciare a conoscerli meglio. Scopri tutti i segreti che li hanno resi così vincenti in un percorso articolato in sei isole tematiche, l’una più coinvolgente dell’altra! Oltre alle visite guidate a Corporea, il primo museo interattivo sul Corpo Umano in Italia, ritorna a grande richiesta il 3D “Robot Explorers” per viaggiare insieme a sonde, lander e orbiter all’interno del nostro sistema solare. Vieni a scoprire il ricco programma! Vi aspettiamo in tanti!

La Comunicazione. Scienza o Arte?
L’arte, la pittura, il disegno, la scultura sono forme di comunicazione. L’artista esprime sé stesso attraverso questi mezzi. Ma chi è l’artista? Non è forse anche uno scienziato? Egli, infatti, conosce a fondo tecniche e materiali necessari per realizzare la sua arte. E quindi la comunicazione, che è anche arte, diventa scienza, perché solo conoscendo a fondo le sue componenti più elementari si può esprimere sé stessi. A seguire, lezione sui gesti più comuni della Lingua dei Segni.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle: 3R to live GREEN – April 25 at Città della Scienza

Spesso si sente parlare delle 3R in materia di rifiuti, ma cosa rappresentano davvero?
Il concetto espresso dalle 3R è quello di utilizzare quantitativi minori di  materiale, utilizzare più volte uno stesso oggetto fino a che sia possibile farlo, gettare via ciò che è infine inutilizzabile differenziando i vari materiali che lo compongono. Quindi Riduci, Riusa, Ricicla!
Se queste semplici indicazioni venissero messe in pratica dalla maggioranza degli abitanti del nostro Pianeta sarebbero sufficienti da sole ad apportare cambiamenti di enorme portata. Pensate ad una vostra borsa della spesa piena: quanta carta e plastica, che finiranno direttamente tra i rifiuti, ci trovate all’interno? Se noi consumatori cominciassimo in massa a non comprare più tutti quegli articoli avvolti da imballi e sovraimballi cosa succederebbe?  Quanto ci metterebbero i grandi gruppi industriali a fiutare la nuova tendenza e a rivedere i propri prodotti e il loro packaging? Quanti milioni di tonnellate in meno di rifiuti galleggerebbero negli oceani se riuscissimo ad utilizzare più materiali riciclabili e/o biodegradabili piuttosto che la plastica e a ridurre gli sprechi? La risposta a queste domande vi aspetta a Città della Scienza volutamente nel giorno della liberazione, il 25 aprile 2018!

3R per vivere green a Città della Scienza 25 aprile _1200x628 eng

Ospite speciale di questa giornata sarà ASIA Napoli S.p.A, che, in maniera divertente e interessante, ci farà capire l’importanza della raccolta differenziata e di una buona educazione ambientale e civica come forma di rispetto e protezione del proprio territorio.
Con il termine tinkering si definisce un tipo di gioco creativo molto interessante, tra l’esperimento scientifico, la tecnologia e…. il riciclo! Esplora le conoscenze tecnologiche e scientifiche e stimola la tua creatività con “Piccoli inventori crescono…”.
Latte, carta e tappi da buttare? Niente paura! Con il laboratorio “Riciclo creativo”, prova a ridare vita ad oggetti vecchi. Le soddisfazioni non mancheranno.
“Il riciclo dell’acqua”: nelle nostre case l’acqua potabile non manca: basta aprire i rubinetti e sgorga abbondante! Purtroppo non in tutte le parti del mondo questo è possibile. E allora…depurare l’acqua con metodi green? Oggi si può! Scopri quali e quanti sono questi metodi e come funziona un impianto di depurazione dell’acqua.
E infine, scopri quanto tempo impiegano a degradarsi i più comuni oggetti di uso quotidiano. Non saranno sempre solo piacevoli sorprese.  Non perdere l’attività “Un mondo di plastica”.
Nuovamente visitabile la Mostra dedicata al Mare! Scopri quali nuovi pesci, molluschi e crostacei abitano le nostre vasche seguendo la visita guidata Ecosistemi marini”. Durante la visita, avrai la possibilità di accarezzare alcuni organismi marini vivi nella nostra Touch pool. Che emozione!
Ti sei mai chiesto dove vanno a finire i rifiuti? Tutte le strade conducono al mare, ricettore finale di tutti i rifiuti. Purtroppo, però, la maggior parte di essi non sono biodegradabili e si accumulano, generando gorghi destinati ad accrescersi sempre più in un vortice di spazzatura senza fine. Quali le conseguenze sugli ecosistemi e sugli animali? Scoprilo seguendo l’approfondimento Un oceano di rifiuti”.
E allora consapevoli di tutto ciò tutti uniti contro la plastica! Ogni anno oltre 8 milioni di tonnellate di plastica finiscono nell’oceano. Indistruttibile e non eliminabile, la plastica ha invaso la catena alimentare marittima. Grazie al contributo della Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival e della Fondazione Plastic Oceans, Città della Scienza propone un documentario  per incrementare in ciascuno di noi la consapevolezza che la plastica è una minaccia per la salute umana. Fermati a riflettere guardando il documentario “A plastic ocean”.
Per i più piccoli, “Inventa i tuoi animali marini”, un laboratorio dove potrai colorare sagome di pesci, inventandoti nuove specie, e poi, come per “magia”, farle comparire e nuotare in un grande acquario virtuale.
Non perdere la visita guidata a Insetti&CO”, il nuovo spazio espositivo dedicato allo spettacolare mondo degli insetti e non solo. Per ogni uomo della Terra ci sono oltre 150 milioni di insetti. “I giganti a sei zampe” hanno conquistato quasi tutti gli habitat del nostro pianeta…. è il momento di cominciare a conoscerli meglio. Scopri tutti i segreti che li hanno resi così vincenti in un percorso articolato in sei isole tematiche, l’una più coinvolgente dell’altra!
Oltre alle visite guidate a Corporea, il primo museo interattivo sul Corpo Umano in Italia, segui, solo per questo weekend, ritorna a grande richiesta il 3D “Robot Explorers” per viaggiare insieme a sonde, lander e orbiter all’interno del nostro sistema solare.
Vieni a scoprire il ricco programma!

Per salvare la vita non servono superpoteri…basta una firma. Solo per sabato 12 maggio,nell’ambito del progetto “Partenope Dona 2° Edizione”, la postazione informativa “Donare gli organi: una scelta da eroi” vi permetterà di scoprire come funzionano le donazioni degli organi e aderire alla donazione compilando un semplice modulo. Cosa aspetti? Scegli la Vita!

Come descrivere il corpo umano se non paragonandolo ad una macchina? Così come in un qualsiasi macchinario ogni ingranaggio lavora in funzione di tutti gli altri, nel nostro corpo ogni cellula, ogni nervo e ogni organo lavora per rendere efficiente la macchina nella sua totalità. Ma com’è strutturato il corpo umano? Dove si trovano gli organi vitali? E quali sono i collegamenti tra i vari organi? Partecipa a – “Localizzazione” e “linguaggio” degli organie impara a comprendi i segnali più importanti che il nostro corpo ci invia quotidianamente.

Quanto ne sai sui gruppi sanguigni? Con Il sangue A-B-Zero-AB” testa i campioni di sangue fittizio (sintetico), valuta la reattività nei confronti di sieri anti-A, anti-B e anti-Rh e scopri le diverse tipologie di cellule che popolano il sangue umano.

E tornando al tema delle donazioni, “Dona gli organi, dona la vita…”: cosa significa donare un organo? Come si fa? Perché è necessario farlo? Scopri la risposta a queste e tante altre domande e crea un piccolo organo-gadget da donare! Un “piccolo” gesto ti cambia la vita!

Parte il contest fotografico La famiglia in un click”: scatta e pubblica sul tuo social la foto più simpatica e divertente della vostra famiglia durante un momento ludico trascorso a Città della Scienza nelle giornate del 12 e 13 maggio. La foto più cliccata vincerà un fantastico premio!

Sei appassionato di aquiloni? Ne hai mai costruito uno? Provaci insieme ai tuoi genitori partecipando al laboratorio -L’aquilone “di famiglia-: la sensazione che se ne ricava nel vederne volare uno che hai costruito con le tue mani è straordinaria!

Esistono i cattivi padri/madri nel mondo animale? Nel regno animale le cure parentali più gravose spettano al padre o alla madre? E soprattutto, esiste una vera e propria divisione dei compiti tra i genitori come accade per l’uomo? Non perderti l’appuntamento con la dimostrazione scientificaLa dura vita da genitore nel regno animale”.

Al via ai weekend dedicati a Natura 2000, il principale strumento della politica dell’Unione Europea per la conservazione della biodiversità! Si tratta di una rete ecologica diffusa su tutto il territorio dell’Unione per garantire il mantenimento a lungo termine degli habitat naturali e delle specie di flora e fauna minacciati o rari a livello comunitario. Una serie di attività si svolgeranno a Città della Scienza per parlare, far conoscere e festeggiare il Natura 2000 Day! EVENTO NATURA 2000
Nuovamente visitabile la Mostra dedicata al Mare! Scopri quali nuovi pesci, molluschi e crostacei abitano le nostre vasche seguendo la visita guidata “Ecosistemi marini”. Durante la visita, avrai la possibilità di accarezzare alcuni organismi marini vivi nella nostra Touch pool. Che emozione! Per i più piccoli, “Inventa i tuoi animali marini”,un laboratorio dove potrai colorare sagome di pesci, inventandoti nuove specie, e poi, come per “magia”, farle comparire e nuotare in un grande acquario virtuale.

Non perdere la visita guidata a Insetti&CO”, il nuovo spazio espositivo dedicato allo spettacolare mondo degli insetti e non solo. Per ogni uomo della Terra ci sono oltre 150 milioni di insetti. “I giganti a sei zampe” hanno conquistato quasi tutti gli habitat del nostro pianeta…. è il momento di cominciare a conoscerli meglio. Scopri tutti i segreti che li hanno resi così vincenti in un percorso articolato in sei isole tematiche, l’una più coinvolgente dell’altra! E ancora, solo per il weekend dedicato alla famiglia “Le cure parentali nel mondo degli insetti e non solo…”: avresti mai immaginato che tra gli insetti esistessero dei legami familiari fortissimi? Quando è giunta l’ora, il piccolo di insetto deve prendere la sua strada ma per un po’ di tempo, gode di una protezione esclusiva e amorevole; questo e molto altro ancora sarà approfondito durante la visita guidata a “Insetti&CO”.

Oltre alle visite guidate a Corporea, il primo museo interattivo sul Corpo Umano in Italia, l’approfondimento scientifico durante la visita guidata alla Mostra Corporea Dall’origine ai primi mesi di vita” per capire come e perché cambia il corpo di una donna durante i 9 mesi di gravidanza.

La foto che otterrà più click vincerà un premio.

Mostra fotografica “La terra dei tramonti di fuoco”
l territorio tra le provincie di Napoli e Caserta è caratterizzato da importanti problemi di ordine sociale ed economico. In questo contesto, di apparente degrado generalizzato, sopravvivono ancora biotopi di eccezionale valore naturale, come alla foce del Fiume Volturno, dove si estendono i “Variconi” una zona umida di importanza internazionale inclusa tra le aree protette dalla convenzione di Ramsar e tra i siti Natura 2000. La mostra seleziona alcune delle fotografie di un progetto che vuole testimoniare la contraddizione tra il degrado socio economico del territorio e la voglia di riscatto da parte della natura e dell’uomo. Il titolo “Terra dei tramonti di fuoco” fa il verso all’appellativo di “Terra dei fuochi”, attributo dalla stampa a causa dei roghi appiccati alle discariche di rifiuti illegali e vuole evidenziare la grande possibilità di recupero del territorio, senza negare o nascondere le grandi problematiche da risolvere.

Mission Earth! The Earth is one, unique and irreplaceable – April 21 and 22 at Città della Scienza

“Non è la terra che appartiene all’uomo, ma è l’uomo che appartiene alla terra”. Ricordiamolo nella giornata mondiale della Terra!
Nata come movimento universitario il 22 aprile 1970 per sottolineare la necessità della conservazione delle risorse naturali della Terra, nel tempo, la Giornata della Terra è divenuta un avvenimento educativo ed informativo. Città della Scienza non poteva non adeguarsi nelle celebrazioni a livello mondiale del nostro pianeta blu, programmando attività, laboratori, dimostrazioni scientifiche appassionanti e istruttivi per il nostro pubblico.
Andremo alla scoperta della bellezza ma al tempo stesso anche della fragilità del globo terrestre.

la terra è unica e insostituibile _1200x628 ENG

Quando pensiamo alla Terra, la prima immagine che si forma nella nostra mente è un fiume di lava rossa, calda, incandescente che sgorga dalla bocca di cratere vulcanico. Vi siete mai soffermati a pensare al “linguaggio” dei vulcani?
I vulcani ci parlano e comunicano. Producono segnali che noi rileviamo e registriamo con diverse tecniche. Sta a noi comprenderli per conoscerne la struttura, il loro comportamento e la pericolosità. “Missione Terra! Cosa ci raccontano i vulcani!”: domenica 22 aprile, i ricercatori dell’Osservatorio Vesuviano, sezione di Napoli dell’Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV) forniranno informazioni sullo stato e sul monitoraggio dei vulcani napoletani. Sarà possibile capire come funziona l’acquisizione di un segnale sismico, misurare la temperatura di un corpo con la telecamera termica, studiare i minerali che si formano nella camera magmatica e in superficie attraverso osservazioni al microscopio, guardando immagini e filmati di eruzioni.
La Campania è una delle regioni d’Italia più complesse dal punto di vista geologico, inserita in un contesto geodinamico di grande varietà. La conoscenza del sottosuolo è fondamentale per conoscere l’origine e la localizzazione delle principali risorse e dei rischi che abbiamo “dentro casa”. Vieni a scoprire quali sono le rocce che compongono il sottosuolo della nostra regione toccandole con mano; avrai la possibilità di vedere dove le possiamo trovare e capire perché sono lì, grazie a un modello 3D dell’Appennino meridionale e a una simulazione analogica delle formazione di una catena montuosa. Inoltre, potrai scoprire dove si trova l’acqua che beviamo tutti i giorni e quali sono le insidie che il nostro territorio nasconde, con esperimenti che riprodurranno fenomeni quali frane ed alluvioni.
E tornando al tema vulcani, siete pronti ad un laboratorio esplosivo? “Esperienze… vulcaniche”  ti permetterà di realizzare il modellino di un vero vulcano e provocarne l’esplosione!
Il nostro Pianeta non è solo vulcani e fremiti violenti dei terremoti. Esiste, infatti, una risorsa semi-rinnovabile, che passa inosservata e spesso bistrattata: il suolo.
Il suolo è una risorsa di base, fondamentale per la vita sulla Terra. Dopo gli oceani, è la più grande riserva di carbonio del pianeta e un terzo di tutte le specie viventi si trova sotto la sua superficie. È un bene comune, purtroppo a rischio in molti paesi del mondo. Scopri la vita che si cela proprio sotto i nostri piedi nell’interessante dimostrazione “Il mondo sotto i nostri piedi”.
Abitanti piccoli, ma indispensabili del nostro suolo sono le formiche. Conosciamole più da vicino domenica 22 aprile, in compagnia di un esperto!
Ti è mai capitato di osservare un formicaio e ti sei chiesto cosa c’è sotto la superficie? Inserendo una colonia di formiche in un formicaio costruito da te, potrai avere una visione diretta di come questi insetti costruiscano intricati tunnel e sentieri, e come vi corrano attraverso come se avessero una missione da compiere. Non perderti il tutorial “Costruendo un formicaio” e annota le indicazioni per imparare a costruire un formicaio con materiali semplici!

Il suolo è anche il mezzo in cui affondano le radici delle piante. E parlando di piante  e  dell’importanza del verde, non perdere gli eventi del Napoli Bonsai Club “Suiseki. Lo spirito della montagna” e “Creare Iwagumi”, un gradito ritorno a Città della Scienza. Il suiseki è l’arte di simboleggiare fenomeni naturali attraverso una pietra di piccole dimensioni, naturale e non alterata dall’essere umano; vengono solitamente raccolti tra le montagne e nei fiumi, e si distinguono in pietre paesaggio (rappresentano scenari quali montagne, isole o laghi) e pietre oggetto (animali, persone, capanne, ecc). Vieni a scoprire tutto sui suiseki, partecipa al concorso e scopri come vincerne uno messo in palio dal Club.
La giornata mondiale della Terra è anche un messaggio di invito ad avere più cura del nostro pianeta che è, appunto, unico e insostituibile.
Il pianeta, infatti, rischia di essere ‘soffocato’ dalla plastica: entro il 2050 si aggiungeranno altri 33 miliardi di tonnellate di plastica, pari a una fila di camion per rifiuti lunga 800 volte la circonferenza della Terra. Il rischio di ‘soffocare’ l’ambiente può, secondo uno studio realizzato dai ricercatori dell’Università della California di Davis e pubblicato su Nature, essere ridotto notevolmente solo attraverso l’utilizzo di sostanze plastiche biodegradabili. Con “SOS Pianeta Terra” vieni a scoprire gli effetti negativi della plastica sull’ambiente e impara a “fabbricare” e utilizzare materiali plastici biodegradabili.
Non perdere “Combatti pulito” , un’interessante dimostrazione scientifica in cui scopriremo come sconfiggere il vastissimo esercito di parassiti che ogni anno attentano alle nostre colture in modo ecosostenibile, usando cioè metodi alternativi ai dannosi pesticidi.
Infine, completa la nostra offerta Nuovamente visitabile la Mostra dedicata al Mare! Scopri quali nuovi pesci, molluschi e crostacei abitano le nostre vasche seguendo la visita guidata “Ecosistemi marini”. Durante la visita, avrai la possibilità di accarezzare alcuni organismi marini vivi nella nostra Touch pool. Che emozione!
Per i più piccoli, “Inventa i tuoi animali marini”, un laboratorio dove potrai colorare sagome di pesci, inventandoti nuove specie, e poi, come per “magia”, farle comparire e nuotare in un grande acquario virtuale.
Non perdere la visita guidata a “Insetti&CO”, il nuovo spazio espositivo dedicato allo spettacolare mondo degli insetti e non solo. Per ogni uomo della Terra ci sono oltre 150 milioni di insetti. “I giganti a sei zampe” hanno conquistato quasi tutti gli habitat del nostro pianeta…. è il momento di cominciare a conoscerli meglio. Scopri tutti i segreti che li hanno resi così vincenti in un percorso articolato in sei isole tematiche, l’una più coinvolgente dell’altra!
Oltre alle visite guidate a Corporea, il primo museo interattivo sul Corpo Umano in Italia, ritorna a grande richiesta il 3D “Robot Explorers” per viaggiare insieme a sonde, lander e orbiter all’interno del nostro sistema solare.

La Terra sotto i nostri piedi: la sua storia, le sue risorse, i suoi pericoli
La Campania è una delle regioni d’Italia più complesse dal punto di vista geologico, inserita in un contesto geodinamico di grande varietà. La conoscenza del sottosuolo è fondamentale per conoscere l’origine e la localizzazione delle principali risorse e dei rischi che abbiamo “dentro casa. Vieni a scoprire quali sono le rocce che compongono il sottosuolo della nostra regione toccandole con mano; avrai la possibilità di vedere dove le possiamo trovare e capire perché sono lì, grazie a un modello 3D dell’Appennino meridionale e a una simulazione analogica delle formazione di una catena montuosa. Inoltre, potrai scoprire dove si trova l’acqua che beviamo tutti i giorni e quali sono le insidie che il nostro territorio nasconde, con esperimenti che riprodurranno fenomeni quali frane ed alluvioni.

Missione Terra! Cosa ci raccontano i vulcani
I vulcani ci parlano, e comunicano. Producono segnali che noi rileviamo e registriamo con diverse tecniche. Sta a noi comprenderli per conoscere la struttura, il loro comportamento e la pericolosità. Nella postazione dell’Osservatorio Vesuviano – INGV ricercatori dell’istituto forniranno informazioni sullo stato e sul monitoraggio dei vulcani napoletani. Sarà possibile capire come funziona l’acquisizione di un segnale sismico con una stazione sismica, l’analisi della temperatura con l’utilizzo della telecamera termica, studiare i minerali che si formano nella camera magmatica e alla superficie con l’attività idrotermale attraverso osservazioni al microscopio, guardare immagini e filmati di eruzioni.

To infinity and beyond…journey to the Space! April 14 and 15 at Città della Scienza

Man, since origins, has always been struck and fascinated by the vastness of the heaven and its secrets. It was his thirst for knowledge that pushed him to challenge gravity, the critical points in order to explore new space horizons more closely. On the occasion of the world day of human travel in space, which falls on April 12th, Città della Scienza, with the most beautiful 3D planetarium in Italy, organizes a weekend on the theme of space and space explorations. Many activities and scientific laboratories in the program will fascinate a wide public, because, after all, we are all made of “star dust”! 

verso l'infinito e oltre...in viaggio nello spazio _1200x628_ENG
Special guest on Sunday April 15  will be Team Space4Life , a team of three  young Neapolitan science  students  who will illustrate the concept of the Radio – Shield experiment, winner of the Lab2Moon world competition, a competition born to create an experiment to be sent to the moon.
Only Sunday, April 15, at 11 and 11.45 am, a new fantastic activity awaits you at the Planetarium “Walking through the constellations“: a live show conducted by the U.A.N. (Unione Astrofili Napoletani) that will accompany us to discover the wonderful world of the constellations. The stars have always been the reference point for those who must orient themselves. Today, thanks to the most modern GPS technologies made available by the network, we know our position at any time and how to reach any place on planet Earth. But, once, without these technologies, how was one oriented? Thanks to the stars obviously! Today we will discover how we orient ourselves thanks to the stars and we will launch in the individuation of the Polar star and the other useful ones for “never lose the route”. And again, protagonists of this sensational show the most beloved spring constellations, in a journey through myths, curiosities, legends and scientific data. A walk through the stars, not to be missed.
Did you know that 100 years after the First Step of Man out of the Earth, there is a high possibility to  have a real Cislunar city composed of 10-12 sites (“neighborhoods”) located between the Earth’s orbit and the moon, with about 1000 inhabitants? At Città della Scienza the Center of Near Space awaits you with – Expansion of Humanity in Space: the CNS presents “OrbiTecture” and “Hyplane”.  And returning to the theme of the constellations, who has not enjoyed, at least once in their life, to try to recognize the constellations in the sky? And to unite the various stars, like dots on puzzle games, to try to bring out recognizable and familiar shapes? The constellations are much more than a set of stars: they are legends, myths and curiosities, able to enchant and fascinate young and old. Discover them in a fun laboratory and play your favorite constellation using recycled materials. Participate in  “Constellations of galaxies of energy“.
Microgravity is a particular condition that occurs on board space platforms in orbit around the earth. The microgravitational environment offers various opportunities for scientific investigation in many fields, including fluid physics, combustion, biology, life and materials sciences. With “Space Laboratories and Microgravity” discover what are the experiences in microgravity in different disciplines and on different platforms currently used for scientific research in microgravity. And again, the appointment with “The missile launcher“: did you know that in a paper airplane there is a lot more science than you imagine? Challenge your friends, building the airplane of the form you prefer and trying to launch it as far as possible! You will make it?


Space, astronomy have always been fields dominated by men, yet there are few astronauts women who have traveled in space and made their skills available! The most famous is Samantha Cristoforetti, the only Italian woman to have spent the longest stay in orbit in a single mission. In her honor, celebrating women in space, do not miss the workshop of building a “supergalactic rocket” in “AstroSamantha Cristoforetti: towards infinity and beyond …“. Are you a big fan of astronomy but unfortunately live in the city, where watching the sky is practically impossible, due to smog, light pollution or simply too many days of bad weather? No fear! Participating in the laboratory “Sky on the roof” you will have the opportunity to build a small “projector of constellations” and transform your room roof into a beautiful starry sky!

The starry sky has always represented for Man, since origins, a fascinating spectacle. Did you know that the stars are not randomly scattered in the Universe but grouped in colossal sets, clusters, or families called galaxies? With “Stardust” discover how many and which are the different types of galaxies, recognize the shapes and complete your spatial Lapbook! The exhibition dedicated to the sea can be visited again! Discover which new fish, molluscs and crustaceans live in our tanks following the guided tour “Marine Ecosystems“. During the visit, you will have the opportunity to caress some live marine organisms in our Touch pool. What an emotion! For the little ones, “Create marine animals“, a laboratory where you can color fish shapes, inventing new species, and then, as for “magic”, make them appear and swim in a large virtual aquarium.

Insetti & CO”, the new exhibition space dedicated to the spectacular world of insects and much more. For every man on Earth there are over 150 million insects. “The six-legged giants” have conquered almost all the habitats of our planet … it’s time to start getting to know them better. Discover all the secrets that have made them so successful in a route divided into six thematic islands, one more engaging than the other! In addition to guided tours to Corporea, the first interactive human body museum in Italy, just for this weekend, the 3D “Robot Explorers” returns to great demand to travel together with probes, landers and orbiters within our solar system.

Science sounds good

La scienza suona bene _ENG_1200x628

Hearing is the first sense to be formed, just when we are three months. Its purpose is to transform sound waves from the external environment, and transforming them, in order to send them to the brain. It is there, in our brain, that the sounds will be codified and recognized. If we talk about sound waves, our mind immediately runs to music, the sweetest of melodies. But how many know that, in reality, music is physics: what we call musical note is a propagation of waves through the air. Music is also art: it has always accompanied our days and even our mood swings. How does it have a relaxing effect on our body or amplify our feelings of well-being / discomfort? Workshops, demonstrations, scientific activities on this “melodious” theme wait for you in Città della Scienza!

Special guest of this weekend dedicated to sound and hearing will be the National Association of deaf people, Section of Naples, at the presence of its president Elvira Sepe that through the workshop entitled “Me Deaf in a world of Sounds” and the workshop “Discovering the Language of Italian Signs” will take us on a journey into the world of deafness, between difficulty and potential.

The aim of the workshop is to introduce a new perspective on Deafness, understood not only in a medical but in a cultural and linguistic key. For this reason, starting from the common and daily difficulties experienced by the Deaf, the existing potentials and possible solutions to realize reciprocal inclusion will also be presented.

On the occasion of the weekend dedicated to the sound, we will also investigate the “colors” of the Sign Language, its richness but also the possibilities of our body to perceive rhythms and sounds not only through hearing, in an involving laboratory open to all.

Are you passionate about electronic music? On Saturday April 7th, “Elements of electronic music” workshop waits for you! Unleash your creativity and try to compose a piece of electronic music using the “LIVE” software from Ableton.

 With Makey makey, however, you can transform, thanks to a nice kit, anything in a computer keyboard … this time the bananas become keys of a piano … Come and try this amazing laboratory!

Did you know that creating musical tools with recycled materials sensitizes and empowers children, contributing to the development of their manual skills? In this way, the child, not only approaches music and socializes (playing) with his peers, but shakes off the passive attitude with which he usually sails in the tide of objects that surround him, to recover and develop fantasy, curiosity, creativity and spirit of observation. “tambur battente” is the green workshop for you! Using poor, natural and recovery materials it is possible to build a large number of musical instruments.

In the laboratory “Pan flute” we will discover the physics that lies behind the whole of a straw, very simple instrument in appearance, which offers us to explore some fundamental things of the propagation of sound waves in the middle “air”. We will try to build a simple wind instruments made only with straws.

What’s more fun to understand physics topics like sound waves through a series of engaging experiments? Watch the sound, watch the propagation in the water, experience the effects of the voice and the echo yourself and reveal the “crazy” scientist who is in the “Experimenting with the … sound!” activity.

Our body? It is the first instrument producing sound … With “Body percussion” let’s discover the sound potential of our body and the characteristics of sound. A laboratory not to be missed!

The exhibition dedicated to the sea can be visited again! Discover which new fish, molluscs and crustaceans live in our tanks follow the guided tour “Marine ecosystems”. During the visit, you will have the opportunity to touch some marine organisms in our Touch pool!

And again, do not miss the insight “A journey through instrumental and biological sonar” for action the acidity of acoustics to the marine world.

For the little ones, “Invent your marine animals”, a laboratory where you can color fish shapes, inventing new species, and then, as for “magic”, make them appear and swim in a large virtual aquarium.

Do not miss the guided tour by “Insetti & CO”, the new exhibition space dedicated to the spectacular world of insects and more. For every man on Earth there are over 150 million bugs

The six-legged giants” have conquered almost all the habitats of our planet …. it’s time to start getting to know them better. Discover all the secrets that have made them so successful in a course divided into six thematic islands, one more engaging than the other!

In addition to the visits they lead a Corporea, the first interactive museum on the Human Body in Italy, follow the “Sounds and Noises of the Body” study for this weekend. Sgrunf, ronf, crock, etc., Muttering, burping, pratt. they are the noises of our body, and probably we say so, if there is no voice, discover the cause and the meaning. Fun is guaranteed!

The 3D “Robot Explorers” returns to great demand to travel together with a probe, lander and orbiter inside our solar system.

Come and discover the rich program!

We are waiting for you in many!

1200x628 HUMAN BODIES_The Exhibition eng

Human body on exhibition. Fascinating, mysterious, rare, it is the protagonist of the most interesting scientific and educational exhibition of the world to be displayed next March 24th to June 24th, 2018 at Città della Scienza in Naples.

A journey to discover how our body works and how to preserve and care it.

The museum project was created in 2008 by the Musealia group and curated by Rafael Latorre, professor of simple and comparative anatomy at the University of Murcia and by Virginio Garcia Martinez, professor of anatomy and human embryology of the University of Extremadura, in collaboration with  University of Tennessee.

Alessandro Cecchi Paone the scientific communicator is the exhibition testimonial.
Exhibition got the patronage of the Municipality of Naples – Department of Culture and Tourism.

A special, entertaining and educational opportunity to  know  more about the human body in Città della Scienza in  Corodglio street in Naples with the support of Next Exhibition srl , Alta Classe Project srls and Emme 3 srl, will allow the public access to content sciences that were reserved only for specialists, with simple language, in a real lesson on human anatomy. Human Bodies is perfectly in line with the mission of divulgation Città della Scienza, placing itself in close synergy in particular with Corporea, Italy’s first interactive museum on the human body, prevention and health, inaugurated last year. A visit itinerary (in Italian, English and Chinese) that unfolds in various theme islands dedicated to the different systems of the body, with particular attention to the behaviors affecting our health. The aim of Human Bodies is to promote health and longevity issues, especially among the youngest, by informing viewers about the damage of bad eating habits and wrong lifestyles. Youth, in fact, is the privileged audience of this exhibition: middle school children, students and university students aged 20-38, families and especially those interested in learning how the body works and how to keep it in perfect condition.

In Human Bodies protagonists are the bodies together with over 150 real organs, preserved through the process of plastilination, a technique that allows to preserve the human body at the time, maintaining its original real characteristics. A long and complicated process that makes all the exhibits rare. These, donated by individuals to science, are used only for scientific purposes and, once the exhibition is over, they will return to the University of Murcia as a basis for future generations of professionals in the medical field.

The exhibition of records, which has already been visited by over 40 million visitors worldwide, is divided into eight areashuman body development, the skeleton, the muscular system, the respiratory system, the digestive system, the nervous system and finally the urinary and reproductive system. As in a three-dimensional anatomy book, the life cycle is on display, from the first embryo to the creation of a new life, passing through the daily habits of men, including sport. In fact, some of the exposed bodies are of “plastinated” athletes in the athletic gesture. But even bad habits, such as alcoholism, smoking and poor diet, are exhibited by very striking examples. Because seeing with your own eyes, especially for the younger ones, can have much more strength than many words. To further enrich the contents of the exhibition, will be involved for the edition of Città della Scienza in Naples, experts of the medical and scientific world of the territory, for a cycle of in-depth conferences. In the same way, there are also connections connected to the world of wellness, for the care of the body and the spirit, through sport and healthy nutrition.

Welcome Spring! – Saturday March, 24th

Finally it’s Spring Time! At 6 pm there is still sunlight and the air is sparkling. 

But what is the scientific meaning of spring?Why do the days get longer and the temperatures get warmer?How does it influence the life of living beings?Why is the season of love?To these and other questions, we will respond to Città della Scienza through fun workshops, activities and engaging scientific demonstrations.

Look at the program!

1200x628 BENVENUTA PRIMAVERA eng

The period of frost is finally far, so that every outdoor bonsai that had been sheltered can be placed outdoors. The word “Bon-sai” (often mistakenly pronounced as bonzai or banzai) is a Japanese term which, literally translated, means “planted in a vase”. Find out more about this ancient technique with dates by Napoli Bonsai Club:

- “Bonsai: planting a tree in a vase” Practical demonstration of training techniques of a bonsai

“Kokedama: the magical world of plants without pots” do not miss the opportunity to make  pearls with small flowering plants;

 “Bonsai on stage” Exposure of bonsai specimens that most highlight the spring season, such as maples and bonsai in bloom;

“SOS Bonsai”: Is your bonsai sick? No fear! You can take it to view a Naples Bonsai Club expert who will give you the right advice to make it heal

A Spring dedicated to the green! Sustainable production, attentive to the environment and ethical restraints will be the guiding thread of the purchasing choices of the current generations. But going down in detail, what does this mean for public opinion? Find out more with “Natural cosmetics: credibility and sustainability of the green trend“.

Spring is perhaps the most popular season, surely it is the one that represents life par excellence, the awakening, the rebirth after the cold and the darkness of winter, the bright colors and the perfumes. And are you ready to dive into the colors that accompany spring? With “Spring in 3D” you have fun building a projector that can turn images into colorful 3D flowers in the palm of your hand! Every season has its charm, but spring has always been seen as a sort of rebirth after the long and cold winter; it’s the season in which the fantasy is unleashed! Let’s discover together how to make fantastic jewels and decorations using colored salt! Do not miss “Jewels of salt“.

In science class we learned that plants absorb water and nutrients from the soil and bring them to the leaves, making them go up along the trunk. And the same also happens in the flowers! Do you want to find out how? Do not miss the appointments with “Science Garden“.  Spring brings in our exhibition areas an explosion of creativity and enthusiasm that lead to the creation of fun but meaningful activities from an educational and experiential point of view! The exhibition dedicated to the sea can be visited again! Discover which new fish, molluscs and crustaceans live in our tanks following the guided tour “Marine Ecosystems“. During the visit, you will have the opportunity to caress some live marine organisms in our Touch pool. What an emotion! For youngest, “Create your marine animals“, a laboratory where you can color fish shapes, inventing new species, and then, as for “magic”, make them appear and swim in a large virtual aquarium. Do not miss the guided tour of “Bugs & CO”, the new exhibition space for children dedicated to the spectacular world of insects and more … In addition to guided tours in Corporea, the first interactive museum on the Human Body in Italy, the 3D “Robot Explorers” returns to great demand to travel together with probes, landers and orbiters within our solar system. We are waiting for you in many!

WATER DROP, LIFE DROP – March 17th – 18th

CELEBRATING THE WORLD WATER DAY: “BLUE GOLD” OF OUR PLANET

Chemically composed of two hydrogen atoms and an oxygen atom, water is undoubtedly the most important of all our resources! From the space our planet looks like a “blue marble” because of the predominance of the water element. On March 17th and 18th, Città della Scienza celebrates the world day of water (which falls on March 22nd) with experiments and scientific demonstrations on the “blue gold” of our planet.


1200x628 goccia ENG

Would you like to build an acquarium of you own? With “hands in water” in Città della Scienza, the dream becomes reality! Starting from poor materials, discover the secrets to build a real aquarium in order to reproduce at your home!

Only Saturday, March 17th, in the company of ARPAC experts – Regional Agency for the Environment in Campania we will discover the techniques used for monitoring surface water: seas, rivers and lakes. Discover how delicate the balance of these very important components of the hydrosphere is!

And if physics is your passion, we recommend the activity “Air VS. Water” where, talking about air and playing with water, we will investigate some fluid behaviors through the realization of different experiments. Simple explorations that will allow us to better understand that air, although it doesn’t seem to be, it’s made of matter … sometimes stronger than water!

Do not miss “Microcosmo“, a laboratory where, starting from a diorama that reproduces the seabed, you will realize animal and plant marine organisms to complete “your” microcosm and find out which extraordinary balances allow life.

In recent weeks a wave of cold and cold called Burian has broken down, and all the cities, including Naples, have become white! What a thrill it was to wake up under a blanket of soft, white and shiny snow! But what is snow from the scientific point of view? “Icy” water! Let’s find out the secrets in “Snowflakes” together. Building a nice ice crystal, you will understand that the shapes of snowflakes are wonderful and always different.

And again, this weekend will end the path of alternating school-work classes IV ° A, IV ° C, IV ° G of the Institute of Higher Secondary Education “Francesco Crispi” of Ribera (Ag); the boys will perform four activities together with the public:

  • Chemistry or magic? Water to separate colors

Is there a way to get back the primary colors starting from the secondary or tertiary? In the role of a chemist you can experience the composition and the decomposition of natural and non-natural pigments!

  • Modeling the molecules

All living cells are made up of molecules, mainly complex and large, resulting from the combination of four elements! So, from what elements is the water molecule formed? Get to know the extraordinary characteristics of water and try to build the models of the molecules that surround us!

  • Water & DNA: between physics and biology

Water, a molecule that regulates all the functions of the organism and which, thanks to the research of Italian and international scientists, has been discovered to be endowed with memory and coherence. Is it really possible? And what would this revelation involve? And above all, how is DNA involved? Let’s find out together and try to make the DNA visible to the naked eye by extracting it from vegetable and plant tissues!

  • The water balance of cells

Do you know that many cell properties are related to water? The human body is like “immersed” in water, from the smallest cell to the organism in its entirety. But is the animal or vegetable cell to have the highest water content? What happens to a cell if it is placed in a solution that has a saline concentration different from its own? Let yourself be fascinated by the wonderful world of cells!

The exhibition dedicated to the sea can be visited again! Discover which new fish, molluscs and crustaceans live in our tanks following the guided tour “Marine Ecosystems“. During the visit, you will have the opportunity to touch some live marine organisms in our Touch pool. What an emotion! For the little ones, “Invent your marine animals”, a laboratory where you can color fish shapes, inventing new species, and then, as for “magic”, make them appear and swim in a large virtual aquarium.

Do not miss the guided tour of “Bags & CO“, the new exhibition space dedicated to the spectacular world of bags and more. For every man on Earth there are over 150 million insects. “The six-legged giants” have conquered almost all the habitats of our planet … it’s time to start getting to know them better. Discover all the secrets that have made them so successful in a journey divided into six thematic islands, one more engaging than the other!

In addition to guided tours to Corporea, the first interactive museum on the Human Body in Italy, the special  3D show “Robot Explorers”

BUGS&CO, discover the new exhibition area on bugs world – March, 10th and 11th

At Città della Scienza we party! We will expand the exhibition areas for our audience with the exhibition dedicated to the sea, totally renewed in the marine inhabitants and in the contents and a new space dedicated to Insects for the little ones! In particular, Città della Scienza for the opening of the exhibition “BUGS&CO”, organizes an entire weekend of activities, science shows, workshops, guided tours, scientific observations and demonstrations to explore all aspects of these amazing six-legged animals. Test your courage and try to stroke some of them live! And again, would you be able to feed yourself on bugs? Finally, you will discover, through comparisons with experts in the field, all the secrets, curiosities and oddities of these perfect “war machines”!

1200x628 apertura mostra insetti e co 10 - 11 marzo a città della scienza

“Bugs&CO”, the new unmissable exhibition space dedicated to the spectacular world of bugs and more. For every man on Earth there are over 150 million insects. “The six-legged giants” have conquered almost all the habitats of our planet … it’s time to start getting to know them better. Discover all the secrets that have made them so successful in a course divided into six thematic islands.  Bugs will be part of the daily diet, and their use has many benefits for both humans and the environment. Scientific studies, in fact, show how an integrated diet with bags is rich in proteins, minerals and vitamins, but low in “dangerous” fats. Their use can have positive implications also in terms of environmental sustainability. An opportunity not to be missed on Sunday, March 11th: – “Novel Food” showcased in Naples – a show cooking where crickets, grasshoppers, larvae, scorpions, moth, silkworms and similar for the production of innovative dishes !!!

Fao considers them as the food of the future, but before arriving on our tables, the bugs ended up in the bowls of the animals! The laboratory “Bugs, new frontier in animal feed” will present the main ingredients used for the production of feed used in breeding of fish species; you can watch the composition of an eco-sustainable feed with the use of insect flours.

Do you like insects or animals in general?  “InsettiMania” laboratory is right for you! Try to fold the paper and modeling brushes and create imaginative animals to give away or take away with you! Building a working robot is every child’s dream; if insects-robot then everything becomes more “magic”! With “6-legged Robot” you rediscover these animals by building and observing the behavior of the robots. A coding workshop!

Just talking about 8 legs and 4 eyes, immediately in the mind of each child goes to the image of a “monstrous” and “ravenous” spider! But can spiders be considered as bugs? Or not? Are they really so scary? We learn to know them more closely through the observation of live specimens, through interactive, dynamic and fun games and manual laboratories all dedicated to the world of Arachnids. Do not miss “8 legs and 4 eyes“.

Since the dawn, men and bags have always shared time and space. During the course of history, man has developed and refined techniques to exploit these animals, from which we obtain materials, dyes, dishes and much more … Save the date, Sunday, March 11, with the fantastic Science Show “Six-legged Man“.

Butterflies, bees, caterpillars, dragonflies, spiders and ants … small animals apparently fragile and silent, in reality hide a high strength and capacity for organization and survival. With “Bugs Tattoo“, discover the symbolism of some bugs and design and make a “wear” tattoo insect. Finally, insects always surprise us with their amazing abilities. Last but not least, their vision! Let’s go to the discovery of the world around us … but “With the eyes of bugs” surprises are guaranteed!

The exhibition dedicated to the sea is open again! Discover which new fish, molluscs and crustaceans live in our tanks following the guided tour “Marine Ecosystems“. During the visit, you will have the opportunity to caress some live marine organisms in our Touch pool. For youngest, “Create your marine animals“, a laboratory where you can color fish shapes, inventing new species, and then, as for “magic”, make them appear and swim in a large virtual aquarium. Everyone as a child liked to create incredible sand castles on the beach, fancy structures that punctually took the sea or collapsed. But for today’s children or for those who have never forgotten the child inside each of us, there is a way to build sand castles everywhere, without getting dirty and reshaping forever: it’s called kinetic sand and it’s a real magic.

As usual there are guided tours in Corporea, the first interactive museum on the Human Body in Italy, and our fantastic Planetarium with the 3D show “Robot Explorers” to travel together with probes, landers and orbiter in our solar system

SCIENCE IS FEMALE! – A weekend dedicated to women scientist of the past and present – March 3rd and 4th, 2018

Women’s contributions to science: yesterday and today

Despite the difficulties, the number of scientists who have made important contributions to the development of science is very high. During this weekend, we will remind everyone of the fundamental contribution of women to scientific and technological research, conducted with creativity, competence and commitment. In honor of the greatest and current scientists and their discoveries, a rich path to show  that science is  woman! Look at the program!

1200x628 la scienza è donna- 3 e 4 marzo a città della scienza

Close your eyes and imagine someone doing research in physics, in an observatory to look at the stars, or under the mountains to look for neutrinos or near huge machines, called accelerators, to look for smaller and smaller particles or in a spaceship to do experiments. Who would you imagine? A woman or a man? What idoes he/she lokk like? Would you like to be one of them?

With “Passion for research:  astronaut or programmer?” We will tell you some stories never known  before!
Space, astronomy has always been a field dominated by men, yet there are many  female astronauts who have traveled in space and made their skills available! The most famous is Samantha Cristoforetti, the only Italian woman to have spent the longest stay in orbit in a single mission. In her honor, celebrating women in space, do not miss the workshop of building a “supergalactic rocket” in “AstroSamantha Cristoforetti: towards infinity and beyond …“.

It is well known that most of the female scientists of the past got few success, working for fathers, brothers, husbands, who became famous. They were hardly ever mentioned in official documents or scientific publications: their names have therefore disappeared, as if they had never existed … Who was Marie Tharp? A little known name, one of the many “unknown” scientists who managed to answer questions such as: what is the origin of the mountains? And, how do earthquakes occur? Thanks to the contribution of Marie Tharp today it is possible to explain the theory of plate tectonics ! Participate inn the explosion of a volcano with “The great intuition of Marie Tharp” and build a fantastic model of your own!

Have you ever heard of coding? It means “computer programming” and could become a real school subject in the next few years! But the concept of coding is not at all recent: << Poetry and code are linguistic phenomena and both occur in language. Both, however, choose another use of language: if poetry is disinterested in the informative function of language, the code is information >>: this is how Ada Lovelace invented the first programming language. “Ada Lovelace and the programming language: time code“: with the help of a dedicated software, write the lines of command necessary to “program” a funny character!

During this weekend the school-work alternation path of the VaC class of the Istituto di Istruzione Superiore Superiore Giancarlo Siani of Casalnuovo will end: students will perform two activities together with the public:
- “Henrietta Lacks: the woman with immortal cells” .. Henrietta Lacks cells, HeLa cells, reproduced an entire generation in just 24 hours! Discover the contribution that HeLa cells have given to research and explore the microscopic (and not) cell world!
- “Rosalind Franklin: the real heroine of the discovery of DNA” – Not everyone knows that in 1963 on the podium for the award of the Nobel Prize for the discovery of the DNA structure was missing a scientist whose contribution was fundamental: it was the researcher Rosalind Franklin. Discover the curiosities that are hidden behind this story and starting from animal and vegetable tissues, extract the DNA from the cells and make it visible to the naked eye.

From March 4, the exhibition dedicated to the Sea can be visited again! Discover which new fish, molluscs and crustaceans live in our tanks following the guided tour “Marine Ecosystems”.

A preview, do not miss the guided tour to “Insetti & CO”, the new exhibition space for children dedicated to the spectacular world of insects and more …

On the occasion of the weekend dedicated to women, discover the matriarchal system in the animal world, “Female power”, deepening during the guided tour Insetti & CO. Not always in the animal world are males to be the master …

In addition to Guided tours to Corporea, the first interactive human body museum in Italy, you can follow “Scientists from Nobel” – a personalized journey on Corporea dedicated to the most famous Nobel Prize winning scientists in history. The guide will tell you anecdotes and curiosities of these mothers, wives, daughters as well as scientists and how often “behind a great man, there is a great woman”.
The 3D “Robot Explorers” returns to great demand to travel together with probes, landers and orbiters in our solar system.

In addition to the guided tours of a Corporea, the first interactive museum on the Human Body in Italy, there will be a special path Nobel Female Scientists and the Planetarium Show “3D Robot Explorers” to travel together with a probe, lander and orbiter inside our solar system.

SPORT, HEALTH AND WELLNESS – February Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th

Sport and fitness have always been the ideal combination to have a healthy body!

Living healthy? Today it is possible thanks to the combination of a correct lifestyle, a healthy and balanced diet and constant physical activity. But what is meant by “physical activity“? Physical activity, physical exercise, physical fitness are all terms commonly used to refer to an active life; this allows us to live our daily life more efficiently, improving the levels of strength, endurance, flexibility and well-being of our body. Look at the program! Are you ready to  move?

1200x628 sport salute e benessere

Find out if you eat with “awareness”! Saturday, February 24th with “Which kind of pasta are you? Come and  know your body composition”: through the use of bioimpedanceometry, a rapid and non-invasive method, you will have the possibility to measure your hydration status and to know the body composition in percentage terms of fat mass and lean mass.

How much does nutrition affect your mental and physical well-being? “What I do to feel good” find out how social relationships, nutrition, being active and the ability to express one’s emotions and to capture those of others are signs of healthy and harmonious growth.

 

And again, it is said that prevention is better than cure! Prevention of caries in children and proper nutrition is essential considering the high incidence of dental conditions. “The health of our mouth” is an activity aimed at informing children and adults on how to prevent the main diseases of the oral cavity through a path of education and play.

Do not miss the events on Saturday and Sunday with ” Moving Activities  and Psycho-physical Wellness“: find out if your movements are balanced, quick and precise through a series of simple and fun physical exercises! And if you like challenges, do not miss the “Corporiadi“: between high jump, strength competitions and cycling, record your score on the card and win a fantastic prize!

 

 Vaccines YES OR NOT! And how much do you know about vaccines?

D.RE.A.M. Academy 2017 closing happening day at Fablab of Città della Scienza

dream academy 2017

Oggi si è tenuta al FabLab di Città della Scienza la giornata conclusiva della D.RE.A.M. Academy 2017. All’evento hanno partecipato, oltre al Commissario della Fondazione Giuseppe AlbanoMario Catalano Presidente di LegaCoop Campania e Raffaele De Rosa in rappresentanza di Inarcassa.

La Academy in Design and Research in Advanced Manufacturing è un programma di formazione avanzata sperimentato per la prima volta da Città della Scienza nel 2017. Si tratta di un corso della durata di 8 mesi, in cui a lezioni frontali sui temi della manifattura avanzata e del computational design, si sono affiancati specifici assignment per gli allievi. Ciascuno di essi è stato selezionato in base al proprio progetto di ricerca che ha poi potuto attuare, coi necessari correttivi, negli ultimi 3 mesi del programma.

La Academy ha visto il coinvolgimento di 14 studenti provenienti da Italia, Cina e Iran, in linea con le attività di internazionalizzazione che vedono Città della Scienza particolarmente impegnata verso i due Paesi asiatici. La faculty ha coinvolto, oltre al personale del FabLab, 14 docenti internazionali provenienti da tutta Europa oltre che da India e Stati Uniti.
Con la Academy, Città della Scienza intende contribuire concretamente alla formazione di professionisti e imprese sui temi dell’Industria 4.0, in linea con il Piano Nazionale Ricerca 2015/2020, la Strategia di specializzazione intelligente della Campania ed il Network 4.0 che sta costruendosi attorno ai Punti Impresa digitale, i Digital Innovation Hub e i Competence Centre.

Nel corso della mattinata i ricercatori, che hanno preso parte al percorso formativo della Academy 2017,  hanno illustrato i propri progetti e presentato i prototipi realizzati.
Una giuria presieduta da De Rosa e Carla Giusti di Città della Scienza ha consegnato a Giuliana Califano il premio per il miglior progetto. Tale riconoscimento, del valore di duemila euro, è offerto proprio dalla Fondazione Inarcassa che ha anche corrisposto una borsa di studio a copertura parziale dei costi di iscrizione per uno dei professionisti discenti.
Il progetto vincitore, ANURA, è il frutto di un percorso di ricerca nell’ambito biomedicale che ha visto lo sviluppo di un prototipo di “patch transdermali” realizzate attraverso un mix biologico stampato in 3D, che rilascia dei principi benefici per la pelle, ha la possibilità di essere riutilizzato ed è biodegradabile.

Notevole è stato il contributo di CoopFond che ha erogato 7 borse di studio del valore di ottomila euro ciascuna per permettere al personale di altrettante Cooperative di formarsi sui temi della Fabbricazione digitale.

La giornata si è chiusa con la consegna dei diplomi ai partecipanti dell’edizione 2017.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MR. DARWIN! – FROM 14th TO 18th FEBRUARY

Charles Robert Darwin: the naturalist who revolutionized the history of the natural sciences. As usual Città della Scienza  celebrates the “Darwin week”, the week dedicated to the memory of life, works, scientific discoveries, observations and theories developed by the famous English scientist. Many laboratories, demonstrations, games, activities and science shows on the theme “Darwin and evolution” are waiting for you! 

1200x628 DARWIN WEEK ENG

Wednesday, February 14th the week starts with “Geology during Charles Darwin time discovering the lesser-known side of Darwin’s work: the geologist.  The scientific demonstration “The extended family” – a fascinating journey in the evolution of man between monkeys and hominids is on program  for Thursday, February 15th. What if Darwin had met Gregor Mendel, considered today the father of the modern science of genetics? How could the two theories be integrated? Let’s find out together Friday, February 16th in Mendel and Darwin, the birth of modern biology”. Did you know that Charles Darwin was an excellent botanist? All-round naturalist, he was very fond of plants. He studied them thoroughly and made important discoveries in the botanical field. Let’s go over these aspects of his biography together. Following observations and experiments on the Plant Kingdom. All this and more in “Darwin, the botanist”.

Would you like to feel like Charles Darwin during his explorations on the Galapagos Islands? Try it in the “Biodiversity Laboratory” and experience biodiversity like a Darwin for a day! What are the four ecological phenomena that helped Charles Darwin to formulate his theory of Evolution by natural selection? Find out, looking at the case studies in the activity Evolution in progress”. Do not miss, moreover,The fight of the finches” - Everyone talks about the famous “finches” of Darwin. But what makes them so special? Why were they important for the writing of Darwin’s theory? In this fun game you will understand what a beak of a suitable shape is for!

Can you win on natural selection? Try and have fun in Who wants to live a million years?” Thanks to a fun App, try not to extinguish your animal population for at least a million years.

Unmissble  explaining evolution, in males of  several species, of a series of harmful or useless but particularly showy features, such as livery and bright colors, long queues, heavy horns, Darwin hypothesized that these characters helped males to compete with members of the same sex for the conquest of the partner (intrasexual selection), or to be more attractive to the eyes of the members of the opposite sex (intersexual selection). Try your hand at building a fabulous artificial anthill.

What were the problems that Darwin faced in his studies on human evolution, the conflicts with the beliefs of the time and his personal battle against racism and slavery? We are waiting for you with “Evolution of the man according to Darwin”.

Only for Sunday, February 18th, you can attend the Science ShowDarwin. Travelling Evolution” in which you can retrace the steps of Darwin’s journey around the world! Fun is guaranteed! Also, do not miss the appointment at 12 noon on Sunday 18 in the company of Maurizio Fraissinet – Ornithologist and President of the Association of Southern Italy Ornithological Studies ASOIM, which will lead you to discover the fundamental role played by the class of birds in the development of theories Darwinists in Darwin and ornithology. The birds from inspiration to witness the evolutionist theories “.

This long weekend will end with the path of alternating school-work of the class 5th of the Institute of Higher Secondary Education Giancarlo Siani of Casalnuovo; on the occasion of Darwin Week, the students will perform two activities with the public:

- “The evolution of the cell” – did you know that due to the remarkable similarities found between the cells of the different organisms it is believed that all the cell types descend by evolution from a single common ancestor? Have you ever imagined that 50 to 100 billion cells die each day in a human being and reform it as much? Explore the microscopic (and not) cell world

- “DNA: genetic traces and Darwin” – The history of genetics can be divided into two phases: one before and after 1953, the year in which the structure of DNA, the molecule of life, is discovered. But if Darwin had known Mendel, what would have changed? And how much do you know about DNA? Starting from animal and plant tissues, extract the DNA from the cells and make it visible to the naked eye.

In addition to the guided tours of a Corporea, the first interactive museum on the Human Body in Italy, the 2D shows “From the Earth to the Universe” of the new Planetarium wait for you for a wonderful journey from the first theories of Greek philosophers to the most modern telescopes and  to travel together with a probe, lander and orbiter inside our solar system.

“Who lives in the newbag’s house?” – guided tours to discover new guests. The man known closely the giant Heteropterix dilatata, the wonderful African dry mantis mantis and the African mantis stick. Welcome to our new guest, the Chromatopelma cyanopubescens or green-blue tarantula!

COLORS: DISCOVERING SCIENCE BEHIND COLORS! – SATURDAY FEBRUARY 10th

Carnival is next and at Città della Scienza we talk about colors! But what is their meaning? Have you ever wondered how our color perception works? Did you know that color is just a “sensation”  borning in our brain? Colors are classified in primary, secondary, tertiary, complementary. What do these terms mean? Let’s find out together! And let’s have fun with the colors. 

A CACCIA DI COLORI a città della scienza 10 febbraio 2018 _1200x628 ENG

Tinkering shows how things are done, promotes exploration, allows one to develop one’s own ideas and feeds creativity and scientific reasoning. How can we use the tinkering technique to get primary colors starting from secondary or tertiary? “Tinkering and chemistry: how colors can be separated“, you can create an ideal circuit and, as a “super-technological” chemist, you can experience the composition and decomposition of pigments!

Rainbow’s colors constitute the “basic spectrum” from which all the light we see is formed. As the various sounds contain the tones of the musical notes of the basic scale, so colored light is formed by its “spectral components”. Participate in “CD as a spectroscope” and have fun building and decorating a fantastic spectroscope.

How many times have you been hypnotized by a colored lava lamp? You held it in your hands, you tried to shake it and you stopped to watch the liquid moving and sharing, giving life to different shapes and colors! Get  “Colored Lava Lamps” and you will have the chance to build one of your own!
It takes a breath to paint! “Painting with the air” will teach you to compose colorful “tableau” and the unpredictable result simply “modulating” your breathing. What are you waiting for?

The first thing you notice when you meet someone is HIS eye color! But which ones and how many are the genes involved in the pigmentation of the eye? And yet, have you ever heard of color blindness? These and many other secrets on the color of our eyes will be revealed through scientific insights during the guided tour of Corporea: “The genetics of eye color” and “The world seen with the eyes of the color blind“.

In addition to the guided tours of a Corporea, the first interactive museum on the Human Body in Italy, the 2D shows “From the Earth to the Universe” of the new Planetarium wait for you for a wonderful journey from the first theories of Greek philosophers to the most modern telescopes and “3D Robot Explorers” to travel together with a probe, lander and orbiter inside our solar system.

“Who lives in the newbag’s house?” – guided tours to discover new guests. The man known closely the giant Heteropterix dilatata, the wonderful African dry mantis mantis and the African mantis stick. Welcome to our new guest, the Chromatopelma cyanopubescens or green-blue tarantula!

Nature never fails to surprise or amaze us! There are animals that have developed the ability to make themselves invisible to the eyes of predators and exploit this ability to hide themselves from their prey, suddenly surprising them. Let’s get to know them closely with “animal mimicry“, scientific study during the guided tour of “Bags’ House”.

Guided tour to Corporea
Corporea is an interactive museum entirely dedicated to the theme of health, biomedical sciences and technologies and prevention, based on the direct experimentation of phenomena by visitors. It is spread over more than 5.000 square meters and is a path dedicated to deepening the knowledge on the human body and biomedical sciences, but also an active place in the field of health promotion, healthy life styles as well as scientific and technological research.

“Talking” about biology
In Science, there is almost nothing boring: everything is mysterious, concentrated, enigmatic, fascinating. The best way to learn biology is, doubtless, to use a practical approach: this is the way to make real those concepts studied in books and to appreciate the importance of this subject. Starting from a few simple materials and using new technological devices, such as tablets and smartphones, we will make biology as a  practical and fun lesson.

Your class at Città della Scienza

Prevention of care in children is essential concerning the high incidence of dental conditions at that age. “Exploring oral cavity” is an activity aimed at informing children and adults on how to prevent the main diseases of the oral cavity through a path of education and game.
In addition, through sight control it is possible to evaluate any sight disease in order to identify possible pathologies! What are you waiting for? Only for Saturday 27th, with “Let’s look each other”: submit to the screening test for the qualitative determination of sight.
Is it really true that “who sleeps does not catch fish”? What’s behind nightmares and dreams? For a long time they passed as a passive phenomenon, sleep seems today as a real form of brain activity! Only for Sunday, January 28th, with “Destination sleep: a journey into the kingdom of Morpheus” enters the kingdom of Morpheus god of dreams, son of Ipno (God of sleep) and of Night, explores what are the chronobiological phenomena our vital functions, and find out if you are …… lark, owl, swift or pelican.
Are you strong enough to dissect a real bull’s-eye? Find out in the laboratory “With open eyes” in his role as an anatomist will deepen the study of the eye and the parts that compose it.
Have you ever wondered why you look more like mom or dad? It’s all about DNA! With “I’m unique”, a fun game will take you to discover the characteristics of an individual and others.
Do you like to investigate your body? From a simple observation under the microscope it becomes a game for finding out systems and organs? “We are like that” let you challenge a look magnified thousands of times!
And again, do not miss “Waling in the human body”, a guided tour on some of the most important apparatuses of your body. Have fun to order, color and rebuild the equipment inside your body!
For the most ingenious “The robotic hand”, laboratory of anatomy in which we deepen different types of movement, the sensitivity of our hand and recreate a model of hand able to move. Fun is guaranteed!
And if some simple cotton part became more cute bones than a skeleton? With “Dancing Skeletons”, study our skeletal muscle system and recreate with cotton for a small skeleton to take away with you at home.
Only for Sunday 28 do not miss the appointment with “Your fingerprint”: the alternation of ridge and grooves on the fingertips is different and specific for each of us, so that the fingerprint can be used as a second identity card that characterizes us at the end of our life. But is it really like that?

In addition to the guided tours of a Corporea, the first interactive museum on the Human Body in Italy, the 2D shows “From the Earth to the Universe” of the new Planetarium wait for you for a wonderful journey from the first theories of Greek philosophers to the most modern telescopes and “Robot Explorers” to travel together with a probe, lander and orbiter inside our solar system.

“Who lives in the newbag’s house?” – guided tours to discover new guests. The man known closely the giant Heteropterix dilatata, the wonderful African dry mantis mantis and the African mantis stick. Welcome to our new guest, the Chromatopelma cyanopubescens or green-blue tarantula!

Destinazione sonno: un viaggio nel regno di Morfeo
È proprio vero che “chi dorme non piglia pesci”? Cosa si cela dietro gli incubi e i sogni? Per molto tempo considerato come un fenomeno passivo, semplice risultato automatico di una perdita di stimolazioni sensoriali, il sonno appare oggi come un’ autentica forma di attività cerebrale.
Meccanismi affascinanti controllano quanto dormiamo e quando dormiamo, secondo un ritmo che si ripete ogni giorno, scandito da un orologio biologico interno. Seguici nel regno di Morfeo dio dei sogni, figlio di Ipno (dio del sonno) e di Notte, in un viaggio appassionante per entrare in uno
dei fenomeni cronobiologici essenziali per il controllo delle nostre funzioni vitali, del tempo del nostro corpo e della nostra mente, e scoprire se sei……allodola, gufo, rondone o pellicano.

Un’impronta digitale è per sempre
Detta anche fingerprint, l’impronta digitale è il risultato di disegni che l’alternanza di creste e solchi forma sui polpastrelli in modo diverso e specifico per ognuno di noi, tanto che risultano essere una seconda carta d’identità che ci caratterizza dall’inizio alla fine della nostra vita.

WELCOME GREEN BOTTLE BLUE TARANTULA!

Da questo weekend non farti sfuggire l’emozione di conoscere più da vicino la nuova ospite della Casa degli Insetti di Città della Scienza: direttamente dagli ambienti desertici e aridi del Venezuela, potrete ammirare la fantastica Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens o tarantola verde-blu!

Otto zampe blu elettrico, un cefalotorace verde bottiglia intenso, un addome arancio-bruno acceso:  certamente con i suoi colori vibranti e vividi, la nostra tarantola verde-blu  non passa inosservata!
Di carattere iperattivo, scattante, “nervosetto”, vorace, l’ultima arrivata ama costruire estese e fitte tele all’entrata della sua tana, che le hanno valso la fama di essere una delle tarantole più tessitrici al mondo.
Per le altre curiosità e segreti su questo “gioellino” della natura, non vi resta che venire a trovarci!

THE GAME – Weekend at Science Centre January, 20th and 21th

 “Playing while learnig” is what’s happening every week end at Città della Scienza where children en they learn staying in community, respecting the rules, winning as well as  loosing; they grow and develop not only the physical, but also the intellect.

the game_città della scienza_ 20 -21 gennaio 2018

Playing for children is a serious matter! On 20th  and 21st  January in Città della Scienza, challenges, scientific demonstrations, team games, quizzes and much more await you to test your skills and challenge your friends on science topics.

Playing is not only fun, but it is the best way to get to know each other, to compare each other, to grow together with others. Only for Saturday, January 20th, do not miss the chance to participate in “What I do to feel good“. Find out how social relationships, nutrition, being active and the ability to express one’s emotions and to capture those of others are signs of healthy and harmonious growth.

With “Science in Play” explores the path of interactive exhibits and games built with poor material and selected to give back to children the possibility and the pleasure of discovering, playing, scientific concepts and technical skills.

Have you ever imagined that molecules, microscopic particles, move at different speeds when placed in an electric field? Between gels, pipettes, tubes you will discover the technique of electrophoresis with the appointments, scheduled for Sunday, January 21st , of “BioMoleCularLAB: Migrating molecules”

Who said science is not a fun show? With Fun Science you will be involved in colorful experiments and themed games for young and adult scientists, “biological” crosswords, colored gels and molecule models.

Do not miss the events on Saturday and Sunday with ” Motor Activities and Psycho-physical Wellness: find out if your movements are balanced, quick and precise through a series of simple and fun physical exercises!

Bright drawings, shadows and magic, with the Games of light workshop, you can photograph the light in all its shapes and colors, exploring the frequencies! Do not miss!

And for sports fans, football is not just about emotions, it’s also a matter of physics! A high rebound characterizes a good ball? Who plays tennis on the synthetic lawn can also play on clay courts? Is it better to have a smooth or rough ball? Find out by participating in the activity Physics in the ball.

Do not miss the appointment with The missile launcher“: did you know that in a paper airplane there is a lot more science than you imagine? Challenge your friends, building the airplane of the form you prefer and trying to launch it as far as possible!

Sunday, January 21 have fun playing the Marine Memory to test your mnemonic skills and discover the most bizarre curiosity about the creatures living  our seas.

And again, try to challenge a shrewd Merchant in The Fair Merchant in Science, a revisited version of the traditional card game between scientific instruments and leading scientists of all ages. Fun (and hopefully, the prize) is guaranteed!

In addition to ordinary guided tours in Corporea, the first interactive museum on the Human Body in Italy, don’t  miss “Corporea in game“, a guided tour on the exhibits dedicated to the game as a form of learning on the human body, hidden among the Museum’s floors.

The 2D shows From the Earth to the Universe of the new Planetarium are waiting for you for a wonderful journey from the first theories of the Greek philosophers to the most modern telescopes and Robot Explorers to travel together with probes, landers and orbiters inside of our solar system.

Who lives in the new house of insects?” – guided tours to discover new guests. You will learn about the giant Heteropterix dilatata, the wonderful African dry mantis and the African mantis stick.

Weekends at Città della Scienza, January 13th and 14th – Winter

inverno_13 e 14 gennaio 2018_eng

Snow and its white color are the symbol of the winter season. This weekend  on the occasion of the World Snow Day celebrated on January 17th, in Città della Scienza there will be many laboratories  about  water cycle with fun insights on the snow and ice that characterize the coldest season of the year! Come and discover the program to learn by playing and having fun!

Young  scientists can experience “Traveling with a drop of water“, a path dedicated to the water cycle, to the recognition of the different “forms” of water, its properties and how they change  according to different  states.

“Thunderstorm activity”: Lightning strikes are fascinating phenomena that are seen, felt and for some people are also scary; sometimes they can cause death. Let’s know them deeply. Have fun embodying a modern “Jupiter” and make a thunder appearing  in the palm of your hand, building a projector that turns the image into a 3D thunder.

Doors, walls, windows and windows: even the house dresses in winter! Take part in the “Snowflakes” a creative  workshop and make one to take home! You will find in this lab that more than 3000 different ice crystals have been classified!

Only for Sunday 14, for the little ones, “The animals of the ice” – find out what the animals are living on the ice and what adaptations they have put in place to survive at low temperatures. Play a glacial environment and have fun, with imagination, to populate it in a nice 3D collage.

Do not lose the emotion of being a paleoanthropologist through the discovery of Otzi – a perfectly preserved mummy re-emerged in the ice of the Alps, throwing light on the habits of the Neolithic men with the workshop “Otzi – The Mummy of the Ice“.

Finally, “Science in a staple” – a workshop to learn  fun issues about  snow and its mode of training and reproduce an artificial snowman.

Besides the guided tours of Corporea, the first interactive museum on the Human Body in Italy, Planetarium shows are available: the 2D shows “From the Earth to the Universe” of the new Planetarium are waiting for a wonderful journey from the first theories of Greek philosophers to the most modern telescopes and “Robot Explorers” to travel with probes, landers and orbiters in our solar system.

PHYSICS SEMINARS 2018

seminari di fisica 2018 ENG

This year the seminaries of the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) and of the Physics Department of the Federico II University of Naples are taking up again this year at the Città della Scienza in Naples. The seminars, addressed to high school students, deal with topics in all areas of INFN and Department research and tell the most fascinating and crucial issues of modern physics: from macro to micro-microsm; from the study of neutrinos to the discovery of the Higgs boson and to the concept of mass; from the concept of energy to the physics of the stars and the most catastrophic phenomena of the Universe.

These seminar cycles, which have been taking place in the Città della Scienza for the last 6 years, should be consolidated as the third mission of research centers and universities, which is the fundamental objective that these institutions have to dialogue with society, and to mission of Città della Scienza which is the scientific divulgation between formal and non-formal teaching. The aim of these meetings is to combine formal learning (at schools, universities, etc.) with non-formal learning (at museums, aquariums, etc.) to promote skills and careers in STEAM (Science, Techonology, Engineering, Arts and Math) and to support people in playing an active role in increasingly democratic and technological societies.

The event is promoted by the European Business Network, in partnership with Città della Scienza and co-organized with Sviluppo Campania - a company in the Campania Region. The initiative is co-funded by the European Union under the “Research and Development Plan, Innovation and ICT Action Plan” – POR Campania FESR 2014 – 2020 – Research and Innovation.

EBN Tech Camp’s activities include representatives of business innovation centers, incubators, science and technology parks, research and innovation centers, universities, technology poles from different countries: in addition to Italy, delegations from the United Kingdom, Romania, Germany, Belgium, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Spain, France, Poland, Ireland, Austria, Cyprus, Slovakia and Finland. Also present in Città della Scienza are extra-European realities from the United States and South Africa

The European Business and Innovation Center Network (EBN) oversees and certifies the activities of the European Business Innovation Center through the EU | BIC quality brand recognizing those facilities providing specialist services for the creation and development of new business ideas based on technology.  Incubator of Città della Scienza, managed by Campania NewSteel company, is an associate member of EBN and represents the Italian representative in the Board of Directors.

Two days focusing to the valorisation of new businesses

EBN Tech Camp’s activities include representatives of business innovation centers, incubators, science and technology parks, research and innovation centers, universities, technology poles from different countries: in addition to Italy, delegations from the United Kingdom, Romania, Germany, Belgium, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Spain, France, Poland, Ireland, Austria, Cyprus, Slovakia and Finland as well as are extra-European realities from the United States and South Africa.

Two planned days of activities, workshops and insights dedicated to 4 strategic innovative themes for entrepreneurial development in  European:

  • Innovative ideas mentoring
  • Most effective business models for business innovation centers and in general for the actors involved in promoting the startup of innovative startups
  • The challenges of industry 4.0 and advanced manufacturing
  • Inclusive entrepreneurship

The protagonists:

“The Campania Region – says Valeria Fascione, Minister for Internationalization, Startup and Innovation of the Campania Region - gets a long term relation with EBN network. De Luca staff has promoted startup and entrepreneurial culture at the centre of its action. It is in this sense that we have been instrumental in helping young potential entrepreneurs, such as Erasmus for Startup, to offer our young startupers the opportunity to go abroad to experience international incubators. “

“In Campania there is a great deal of work on startup promotion and the territorial ecosystem is very vital. EBN is a network that works for new innovative companies. The fundamental idea – says Javier Echarry, CEO of EBN – is that companies that come closer to the network have the opportunity to benefit from all the services and benefits of a European-level network. Structures that join the EBN network can host companies coming from Campania, and regional incubators such as Campania NewSteel can do the same with the most start-ups in the European scenario. This maximizes the virtuous exchange within the network.”

Artico Opening

It is one of the most vital and vulnerable components of the Earth system, and since the Greek Age, the region that overlooks the great “icy sea”, with its long winters and the alternation of astronomical phenomena such as the boreal aurora and the midnight sun fascinated the man. Artico is the protagonist of the new exhibition inaugurated today in the Spazio Galilei of the Città della Scienza;  Massimo Inguscio, National Research Council President, Valeria Fascione, Minister for Internationalization, Startup and Innovation of the Campania Region, Vittorio Silvestrini, President of Fondazione Idis – Città della Scienza. Fabio Trincardi, Director of the Department of Earth Sciences and Technologies for the Environment of the CNR, held a conference titled “Arctic: Changes in Action, Challenges and Research”.

The Exhibition is divided into 4 sections: Arctic in the global system that illustrates the geographical features of the Arctic, the populations that inhabit it and the history of Arctic explorations; Research to observe and understand the Arctic system which presents the main research activities that Italy conducts in Arctic and in particular in Ny Ålesund, in the Svalbard Islands, where Cnr manages the “Dirigibile Italia” research station; Vulnerability and Resilience, a section dealing with arctic ecosystem issues such as chemical pollution, depletion of the ozone layer, and the risks associated with degradation of permafrost, the Governance of the Arctic describing the organizational structure of international organizations, including Italy, which manages the scientific and political programming in Arctic.

The Arctic is a very important area for scientific research: its geographic characteristics and the relatively uncontaminated environment allow to study climate change and the effects of global warming. Polar areas, in fact, are particularly sensitive to any modification, both natural and man-made, and are thus excellent sentinels that can provide clear indications of the current trend in the Earth’s climate system.

The exhibition was conceived and realized by: CNR – Department of Earth Sciences and Technologies for the Environment; CNR – Directorate General Information and Communication Office Urp; CNR – Institute of Atmospheric and Climate Sciences; CNR – Institute for Didactic Technologies.

Neapolitan stage is organized by the CNR – Directorate General Information Communication Office and Urp in collaboration with Fondazione Idis-Città della Scienza.

I Clusters, nati nel 2012, costituiscono oggi una rete ampia e inclusiva di attori pubblici e privati operanti su tutto il territorio nazionale in un’area tecnologica strategica per il Sistema Paese.
Ad oggi, otto Clusters si sono consolidati fino a divenire in Italia strumenti permanenti di coordinamento, consultazione e riferimento focalizzati su: il perseguimento di strategie orientate alla mobilitazione delle eccellenze del mondo industriale, della ricerca e della pubblica amministrazione regionale e nazionale su tematiche condivise; la condivisione e il trasferimento delle conoscenze e delle competenze; l’ottimizzazione delle risorse economiche tramite l’attrazione di investimenti; l’assunzione di un ruolo guida nel contesto europeo e mondiale in tema di ricerca, innovazione e valorizzazione delle eccellenze italiane.
Il coinvolgimento dei Cluster nel programma risale a Novembre 2015 quando i Ministri Stefania Giannini e Wan Gang hanno inserito nel Joint Statement la promozione e l’internazionalizzazione dei Cluster Tecnologici Nazionali italiani in Cina come priorità strategica da perseguire. Nel corso della prima metà del 2016, perciò, la programmazione di una missione di promozione dei Cluster Tecnologici Italiani in Cina ha preso avvio tramite una serie di azioni di informazione rivolte ai rappresentanti degli otto cluster stessi, coinvolti nel processo di definizione delle finalità e degli scopi e alla definizione di un programma preliminare comprendente proposte sulle diverse aree geografiche e gli interlocutori specificatamente individuati sulla base dell’ambito di azione dei singoli cluster.
Per il 2017, dal 17 al 22 settembre, due Cluster hanno preso parte alla missione, promossa dal Ministero dell’Istruzione, dell’Università e della Ricerca, realizzata grazie alla stretta collaborazione dell’Ambasciata di Pechino, dei Consolati Generali d’Italia a Chongqing e a Shanghai e coordinata da Città della Scienza: il Cluster Trasporti Italia 2020 e il Cluster Fabbrica Intelligente.
L’organizzazione della missione ha visto il Cluster Trasporti Italia 2020 impegnato nelle città di Shanghai, Chongqing e Chengdu ed il Cluster Fabbrica Intelligente nelle città di Chongqing e Pechino.
Gli incontri organizzati si sono rivelati tutti estremamente interessanti e sono stati una incredibile occasione di confronto permettendo di identificare da una parte realtà cinesi di assoluta eccellenza, dall’altra di promuovere le eccellenze Italiane nell’ambito della mobilità sostenibile in modo sistemico. Sono stati individuati spazi/ambiti di potenziale collaborazione con un forte interesse da parte di alcuni interlocutori cinesi all’acquisizione di competenze italiane.
Leggi la missione tappa per tappa.

Artico Exhibition: an interactive journey to the North Pole, from September 29th

From September 29th to December 10 th, 2017 at Città della Scienza there will be Artico Exhibition. An interactive journey to the North Pole.

CNR’s exhibition guides the audience with the discovery of the Arctic, its peculiarities and phenomena observed through physical and multimedia installations, interactive experiments, scientific equipment, scale reconstructions, exciting documents, objects and images.

The exhibition is divided into four areas:

  • Arctic in the global system that illustrates the geographical features of the Arctic, the populations that inhabit it and the history of Arctic explorations;
  • Research to observe and understand the Arctic system which presents the main research activities that Italy conducts in Arctic and in particular in Ny Ålesund, in the Svalbard Islands, where Cnr manages the “Dirigibile Italia” research station;
  • Vulnerability and Resilience, a section dealing with arctic ecosystem issues such as chemical pollution, depletion of the ozone layer, and the risks associated with degradation of permafrost;
  • The Governance of the Arctic describing the organizational structure of international organizations, including Italy, which manages the scientific and political programming in Arctic.

Climate change today represents a crucial challenge for the future of the Earth System and the Arctic is the region of the planet where these manifest themselves more quickly than elsewhere, so it can be considered a great natural laboratory to study these processes, with implications for economic, social and geopolitical terms that go far beyond its borders.

The exhibition was conceived and realized by:

CNR – Department of Earth Sciences and Environmental Technologies

CNR – Directorate General Information Communication Office and Urp

CNR – Institute of Atmospheric and Climate Sciences

CNR – Institute for Didactic Technologies

The Neapolitan stage is organized by the CNR – Directorate General Information Communication Office and Urp in collaboration with Fondazione Idis-Città della Scienza.

A new photo exhibition Changing way of thinking – learning from Nature from October 6th

Screen_Umdenken_2

From October 6th  at Città della Scienza Changing way of thinking – learning from Nature, an exhibition on the meaning of the four elements of water, fire, earth and air for the human being.

Humans have always been aware of the importance of the four elements. They thought the sun was a God, they called Earth their  mother’s land, they knew the spirits of air and water. Men have, however, made a distorted use of the four elements, exploiting raw materials, polluting the air and water and undermining the natural balance of the earth. Where is a limit to all this? Since the exploitation of natural elements has destroyed the balance, and part of the natural environment is unfortunately irreparably compromised, a time of rethinking, a change of the way of thinking has begun.

Exposure presents amazing data: many positive and negative examples allow a sensorial approach to the subject. In the interactive parts of the show students are directly involved and become aware of strategies for a responsible and sustainable relationship with the four elements.

The exhibition is particularly intersting for  students and young people who are learning German and are interested in natural sciences. The texts of the exhibition will also be present in Italian.

It does not want to spread simplistic messages, on the contrary, the exhibition intends to encourage visitors to dedicate themselves to the themes of the exhibition, such as Goethe-Institut “Umdenken” portal or at school, following interdisciplinary projects or activities. The exhibition links the study of German with the current theme of environmental protection; content is processed in a way that is perfectly suited to being inserted into interdisciplinary lessons.

Coordination of the Goethe-Institut project: Sigrid Savelsberg

Concept and realization of the exhibition: Würth & Winderoll

Production: Strand

The Neapolitan stage is run by the Goethe-Institut Neapel in collaboration with the Città della Scienza

INTRECCI OK

The second edition of “Intrecci“, the festival of Mediterranean cuisine and not only will take place in Città della Scienza  from September 29th   to  October 1st, 2017. A journey to discover the flavors, traditions and cultures of other worlds.

 

The event is promoted by LESS Onlus and Gnam Village of Città della Scienza.

Food and traditions are the most immediate cultural expression of the peoples. A daily language made of simple gestures and actions handed down over time, winning elements in the integration paths. Knowing the culinary traditions of a people’s collective habits is the hub for solid building and intercultural dialogue. Intrecci, in fact, aims to promote an opportunity for exchange and comparison between natives and migrants; to stimulate the social protagonism of the most representative migrant communities; promoting diversity as the driving force of a changing society.

The initiative envisages the setting up of gourmet booths managed by migrant communities; workshops; laboratories for knowledge on nutrition issues, sustainable lifestyles, the characteristics of the ingredients used, held by experienced nutritionists, sociologists and food specialists. There will also be showcooking devoted to the realization of live traditional dishes. Not only food, but also debates, cinema, music and theater. The protagonists in the kitchen will be the migrant communities in the territory of Naples and the province. From the burkinabe community to the thick Ukrainian community, visitors will be able to taste dishes prepared according to original recipes from Somalia, Cuba and Morocco. In addition, Intrecci will launch a collaboration with Earth of All Film Festival.

The event – completely self-financed – has no profit and the proceeds will be donated to the SOS Supporters Association Santobono Hospital.

Firstly Prof. Marco Mancini, Head of the Department for Higher Education and Research of MIUR, took the floor and stated the importance of both internationalization programs in the scientific diplomacy with both countries, highlighting also the importance of the role played by Città della Scienza. Both are two countries that represent a main target for the MIUR in terms of support of internationalization in the research field.

Following, Prof. Carlo Cereti, Delegate for Iran of MIUR gave a strategic overview of the current situation in Iran, particularly after the election.

Then, Mr. Vincenzo Lipardi, Secretary General of Città della Scienza, explained in detail the two programs and the results gained until this year, as well as the perspectives of future editions. Moreover, he explained the program of the China-Italy Science, Technology & Innovation Week that will be held in Beijing, Chengdu and Guiyang from 13 to 17 November, as well as the main activities, such as the second edition of the Best Start-up Showcase and of the Digital Fabrication Zone. Finally he pre-announced the second edition of the la seconda edizione del Italy-Iran Science, Technology & Innovation Forum that will be held in Italy next February 2018.

In conclusion, the Minister Valeria Fedeli took the floor stating the importance for Italy to position itself in the international scenario more strongly and to undertake internationalization activities in an unified manner. Moreover, she stated that in order to reach a higher level it is important to enforce these instruments for increasing competitiveness, especially in terms of industrial development. Thus, it would be crucial to enlarge the institutional cooperation, in particular with the Ministry of Economic Development for supporting innovative start-ups in internationalization.

Following, there was a round table in which all Presidents shared the state of the art of their cooperation with China and Iran or, in some cases, the willingness to undertake it with the support of the two programs promoted by the MIUR. The Minister promptly commented and welcomed requests of the participants to the meeting.

Board of Directors Press Release
about new Science Centre

The Board of Directors of Fondazione Idis-Città della Scienza  acquired  the “Interinstitutional Agreement Italian Government, Campania Region, Municipality of Naples – Environmental Cleansing Program and Urban Regeneration – National Interest Bagnoli – Coroglio“, signed on July 19th, 2017.

On the one hand, it expresses full appreciation for seeing a new  way back of institutional relations between the various levels of government of the territory – the only way possible to try to fight the socio-economic crisis of the city of Naples and to create in Bagnoli a Special Economic Zone, an important tool of new industrialization against the drama of deindustrialization and hence of unemployment and lack of work that afflicts the city – on the other hand, expresses a protest for the solution offered to Città della Scienza

Fondazione Idis’ Board of Directors denounces that, in spite of the current Regulatory Plan, the Framework Program Agreement signed on August 14th , 2014 by the same Mayor De Magistris, the President Renzi and the President Caldoro, and despite the huge technical  work in the last years and the signing of the Agreement of February 18th,  2017 between Invitalia and Città della Scienza, with the Interinstitutional Agreement, “on a non-negotiable request of the Municipality of Naples, a proposal has been developed for the acquisition to the waterfront all the areas of sediments of the burnt volumes leaving the ruins of the old glasswork along the seafront. As an alternative to the agreement reached between Invitalia and Città della Scienza, it was therefore prepared to build the NSC behind existing volumes in the former Italsider area, today Invitalia (with the condition that its exchange of ownership of the areas and the valorisation of the sea areas by the same Invitalia) “.

Idis’  Board denounces that with this decision the municipality of Naples erases the reconstruction of the burned Science Center that was scheduled for March 4th, 2020, and that Fondazione Idis  will never accept the deportation of the Museum. Beyond the good words, all the work done in the aftermath of the fire attack goes into smoke: the technical and design work that had led to the signing of the Framework Program Agreement of August 14th, 2014, the award Of the New Design Center’s international design contest, the Campania Region’s launch of the Service Conference, the Invitalia Agreement for a further retreat to make regeneration projects even more compatible.

The BoD reminds Mayor De Magistris that the Foundation in 2013 could have made a simple DIA and rebuild the burned Museum, but that it had accepted its  request and the municipal administration to reconstruct it where it was but with a retreat of 18 meters over the Its historic location, to make the new museum compatible with the walk and the artificial beach, and that the August 14th , 2014 agreement was the result of timely technical work with municipal offices.

Reading the document and looking at the plants, it’s clear that there is no technical reason in the decision to drive the museum out of his home. It should be clarified that the relocation of the Museum, insistently proposed by the Municipality of Naples before the signing of the Agreement of  August 14th, 2014, served to “make” the coast empty from artifacts, because on those same areas, in front of the ruins of the current museum, is now proposing to build commercial volumes.

Even the project for the realization of the large public beach – fully compatible with the presence of the Science Centre, against which Città della Scienza would be an important garrison, attraction and animator, not only in the summer months – must be brought to the truth: the desired proposal From the Commune is not a “reconstruction” of the coastline, because instead of the natural coastline, consisting mainly of tuffed and lava rocks, a Dubai-style artificial beach will be built, which never existed in the area, From dubious environmental tenure, and which represents yet another act of man’s force on nature.

This request – the only “non-negotiable” in a 102-page document- is not explained with the exact will of the municipal administration to strike a piece of Neapolitan scientific community, that collected Città della Scienza always shown free and independent, while constantly maintaining a collaborative and constructive approach with the institutions in general and with the same De Magistris team. Again, we reiterate that the autonomy of our institution is not touched, and that independence from politics is what has allowed the Città della Scienza to represent for more than thirty years, nationally and internationally, a point of reference Cultural, scientific and economic, ambitious and credible, to reborn as the Phoenician Arabic from the criminal fire, and this is an essential condition for helping to innovate and transform our city and our region.

The proposal with the ‘Interinstitutional Agreement to block the reconstruction of the Museum to reconstruct it in the distant future, in areas not owned by Città della Scienza, certainly not of the same value, which should first be acquired by Invitalia, then dealt with by the judiciary, then still be subject to reclamation, is yet another humiliation that could be spared in the city of Naples.

Moreover, the principle of the relocation of the new museum to “empty” the coast line is quite incomprehensible, leaving, however, where the whole burnt artifact is, opting for a land occupation with a “dead” structure, And renouncing forever to revive it in the name of science and law with a futuristic project designed by young people for young people.

Once again we point out to the City of Naples and to the Mayor De Magistris that we move a museum built in 160 years old building, an integral part of the General Regulatory Plan, with the motivation that most of the buildings were burned by criminal hands, An opportunity is good to eliminate it is in fact giving reason to those same criminal forces that burned the Scientific Museum of the city of Naples,

The Board of Directors appeals to the Mayor, the Administration and the City Council, the Campania Region and the Government to correct this decision and allow it not to interrupt the reconstruction of the Science Center “where, as it was, Even more beautiful, “as required by the hundreds of thousands of citizens who have been mobilizing for the rebuilding of the Città della Scienza these years.

The CdA asks to give the facts a firm answer to the hand and to the criminal minds that have ignited the Museum and not to support the thesis of those who see in the fire an effective tool for redesigning the territory. If this choice is not corrected, Fondazione Idis’ reserves the right to seek compensation in the appropriate venues for the material and moral damages it may incur.

The proposal of the municipal administration that “plans to capture all the areas of sedimentation of the voluminous volcanoes by letting the ruins of the old glasswork along the seafront”, as well as playing as a mockery, is a negative message to young people of Naples and the whole country, proof of the inability of a ruling class to look to the future and invest in culture, science and innovation to build a just, solid and inclusive city.

Campania NewSteel, presented the certified incubator under the Growth Decree 2.0

Campania NewSteel, the certified incubator under the 2.0 Growth Decree promoted by Città della Scienza and University of Naples “Federico II”, was presented today, Wednesday 19 July 2017, to the Industrial Union of Naples.

Campania New Steel is a tool to connect startup and spinoff with opportunities for technological and business development and one of the leading national structures to support the birth and development of innovative new businesses.

Edoardo Cosenza, president of Campania NewSteel, stressed the timing and effectiveness of the action that led to the birth of the certified incubator. Vincenzo Lipardi, secretary general of Città della Scienza, explained that Campania NewSteel “tries to reverse the trend towards the de-industrialization of our land. In Campania we boast an impressive innovation ecosystem. In this framework, BIC has helped to create 150 startups and about 1500 jobs, without forgetting the AIC – Area Industria della Conoscenza, a worldwide value center such as D.RE.A.M. FabLab and the Academy and the international technology transfer center. Naples can become the leader of a new major re-industrialization plan starting from these reference centers”.

Ambrogio Prezioso, president of the Industrial Union of Naples, praised the action that “with Corporea, Planetarium and many other important initiatives gives birth to a sort of ‘smart gulf’ on which quality projects can be realized”. Gaetano Manfredi, rector of the University “Federico II” of Naples, highlighted the importance of having “a certified incubator filling the gap below Garigliano. Our heritage is young talents well formed by our universities. Transforming this heritage into development is today’s great challenge. Naples is the driving force of change for the South. Having an ecosystem that produces successful startup and with interesting projects is paramount”.

Discover Campi Flegrei. City Sightseeing red bus joins Città della Scienza and Solfatara

The new City Sightseeing touristic service “Discover Campi Flegrei”, for the first time connect Città della Scienza and Solfatara.

More about Discover Campi Flegrei

“We are really happy to be on ‘board’ the most famous and evocative bus in the city – said Vincenzo Lipardi, Secretary General of Città della Scienza - This is the demonstration of how our reality is increasingly becoming a leading cultural and tourist attraction for our city. Today, tourists and Neapolitans can combine the discovery of wonders with historical and monumental towns and the suggestive contemporary architecture of Città della Scienza ,but above all its contents of advanced social and technological innovation and scientific dissemination in the enchanting setting of the Gulf of Pozzuoli. “

Every year we aim for new services to expand the tourist offer and to enjoy not only the beauties but also the excellence of our territory, today it is in Bagnoli and in the Phlegrean area. Città della Scienza  and Solfatara are among the main attractions of the  Phlegrean area and networking between transport and sites of excellence is the strong point for a city that points to the knowledge and tourism development of the territory. ” This is what Antonietta Sannino, Managing Director of City Sightseeing Naples said.

The inclusion of the Città della Scienza and Solfatara among the tourist trails proposed by Sightseeing is also linked to the data emerging from the last survey conducted by the company on tourist flows connected to the city of Naples. Compared to 2014, “tourists passing” in Naples have risen from 6% to 15%, and tourists who choose to stay somewhere in town in hotels almost doubled: 33% going up to 57%.

“I am very pleased with this initiative of City Sightseeing Naples, which, with true entrepreneurial spirit and love for the region in which it already actively works, has decided to extend its service to an area rich in natural and archaeological resources such as  Phlegrean area, worthy of being fully included in the tourist circuit of the province of Naples” Giorgio Angarano, administrator of Vulcano Solfatara srl said

Discover Campi Flegrei contribuirà alla scoperta e riscoperta dei ‘nostri’ Campi Flegrei transitando lungo la costa del cratere di Bagnoli, sostando a Città della Scienza, eccellenza scientifica e divulgativa sempre più all’avanguardia per la sua offerta culturale, proseguendo verso Pozzuoli e le sue altre meraviglie”, ha concluso Nino Daniele, assessore al Turismo del Comune di Napoli.

“Discover Campi Flegrei will contribute to the discovery and rediscovery of our ‘Campi Flegrei’ along the coast of Bagnoli’s crater, with Città della Scienza  the most advanced scientific and popular excellence for its cultural offer, continuing towards Pozzuoli and Its other wonders” ended  Nino Daniele, Tourism ministry of the City of Naples.

The 31st edition ends with 250,000 visitors

unnamed

Over 250,000 visitors consecrated the 31st edition of Futuro Remoto dedicated to the theme “Connections”, the third in Piazza del Plebiscito, in the center of Naples.

The event, which began with the award of the Medal of the President of the Italian Republic, aims to strengthen the relationship between science and society, which has always been the mission of Città della Scienza, and has been a massive consultation on the topics of RIS3 Strategy promoted by Campania Region.

The new format of Futuro Remoto, the largest european happening on social innovation, shows that it is possible to bring people closer to science, culture and innovation.

The success of this third edition in piazza del Plebiscito is essentially due to people and connections: it is due to the synergy between our institutions, the Campania Region and the City of Naples, between the seven Universities of Campania and among the research centers and startuppers that Futuro Remoto has been possible this year as well. Our special thanks go to researchers, startuppers, volunteers, associations and all those who have chosen to play a role, bringing their innovations to the public. This is the true meaning of our event. Alongside the promoters, I would like to remind that the choice of making of Futuro Remoto the communicative pillar of RIS 3 Strategy in Campania puts the theme of the intelligent re-industrialization of our cities at the center of the debate. The need of a new scientific education of our young people, the need to create open, connected, solid cities.” Said Secretary General of Città della Scienza, Vincenzo Lipardi.

For four days, from 10am to 10pm, piazza del Plebiscito has hosted over 100 meetings with international guests, experts and researchers, over 10,000 demonstrations and experiments for a total of 550 key actors participating within the 9 pavilions and 12 thematic islands. There were 2000 researchers who chose to show to the public what is happening every day in their labs; 60 companies that took part in the b2b appointment and session, held for the first time this year, and more than 100 schools have turned the location into an exceptional didactic workshop.

By now,” says Vincenzo Lipardi, “this event is a great connection, piazza del Plebiscito promoted the idea that Futuro Remoto becomes the permanent platform for communication and social involvement of Campania Ris3 Strategy“.

The radar Oceansat on the Corporea’s roof

On the Corporea’s roof has been installed a coastal and environmental monitoring radar that is part of the OCEANSAT project radar network, which will become an integral part of Città della Scienza SEA exhibition. OCEANSAT was developed by companies like FOXBIT, Remocean; EUROSOFT and ALI, co-funded by ASI Italian Space Agency under the 3rd call for SMEs – Satellite Telecommunications. The project involves the implementation of an Integrated Services Center for Coastal and Environmental Monitoring through the use of a radar wave network, both fixed and mobile, interconnected through a two-way satellite network KA. The aim is to obtain a series of useful information on sea conditions such as: Wave motion; Surface Current; Evolution of bathymetric maps; Presence of pollutants on the surface of the sea; Presence of small dripping objects. Data that are valuable to the coastal environment that is a dynamic ecosystem, where natural and anthropic processes add up and interact by altering their geomorphological, physical and biological characteristics. The continuous movement of sediments by the sea (currents, tides, waves, storms) undergoes continual coastal changes, which emerge with new settlements of the shore line and with territorial surfaces emerged and submerged from the sea. Any intervention can not ignore a concrete and solid knowledge of the physical and biological processes of these environments. It is therefore evident the importance of the data that will be collected through this project and will be made available to Public Administrations, Port Authorities and Research Institutes for the complete control of the water mirrors in front of the coast and which will allow them to hydrogeological risk prevention or to produce marine weather forecasts.
