Summer holidays: exhibitions close on June 30, but we’re not on vacation!

On Sunday, June 29 – last day of opening – the exhibition areas of Città della Scienza will close to allow the set-up work of the new exhibits to be inaugurated in October. But we aren’t on vacation and we continues our activities with a program full of events during the summer season.

Throughout July the summer camps for children and teens we’ll go on with many workshops, sport, scientific and recreational activities.

Another interesting event in July is the exhibition Diatomee, dedicated to a very special unicellular alga presents in aquatic environments. The staging phase will involve 30 international artists and designers who will create an evocative sensorial experience that allows you to “plunge” in the fascinating world of diatoms. The exhibition, organized in collaboration with the Second University of Naples and CNR, will be inaugurated with a scientific conference on Friday, July 11 and will be open by appointment.

Città della Scienza will take part in the Ravello Festival, the annual kermesse dedicated this year to the evocative theme of the South, with three conferences on Mediterranean diet (July 24), algebra (July 31) and climate change (August 8), held by leading figures such as Marino Niola, Carlo Sbordone, Thomas Stocker.

October will be opened with a series of major events, the first of which will be the 12th edition of Smart Education & Technology Days, sponsored by the Ministry of Education: the national convention dedicated to the world of the school will take place on 9, 10 and 11 October 2014. Italian schools of all levels, along with companies who work in the field of schools and education, associations, public institutions, will debate on the good practices and on the meaning of educational innovation and use of new technologies.

On October 13-14 Città della Scienza will host the China Innovation Forum Italy / Sino Italian Exchange Event (SIEE), the program of scientific and technological cooperation between Italy and China that Fondazione IDIS promotes and manages since 2006 and which is still the frame in which Italy and China cooperate on the issues of Research and Innovation, under the aegis of the respective Governments. The event will be ended in Rome on October 15 in the presence of the two Prime Ministers Matteo Renzi and Li Keqiang.

The exhibition finally reopens to the public with the big annual exhibition “Futuro Remoto. A journey through science and science fiction”, one of the most important events for the dissemination of scientific and technological culture in Italy and Europe, this year entirely devoted to the theme “The Sea: a journey, a discovery, the science”: interactive installations, aquariums, touch tanks, and virtual and augmented reality, will grant to the visitors a fascinating and educational journey in the sea’s depths, from the Campania region to the ocean depths.
