Emme Summer School 2017 at Città della Scienza ends successfully

The last day of this successful edition of the Emme Summer School is just over! It was an unforgettable experience for the thirty participants, for speakers and for everyone involved.

Day 5 of Emme Summer School 2017 started at Città della Scienza with the workshop held by Carlos Catalão Alves from Ciencia Viva. In this workshop were exposed examples of IBSE (Inquiry based science education).

Ayah Younis from the Children’s Museum Jordan shared her experiences through an interesting workshop on designing activities for children.

To complete a culture and sharing experience like Emme Summer School 2017, the participants visited the National Archaeological Museum of Naples (MANN). With one of the richest collections in the world, MANN is a true Italian cultural gem.

The specific goal of the Summer School is to establish a Euro-Mediterranean and Middle East Framework for science centres and museums to reinforce their capacities, strengthen dialogue and exchange amongst the participating institutions, and increase the community of players working for public engagement with science in the region.

Five days of workshops and practical lessons, an ice-break event, 30 participants from 10 countries, 23 speakers and lots of sharing moments.

Città della Scienza is proud to have taken part to this great experience!

Emme Summer School, day 4: interaction and participation to learn how to manage exhibits

Emme Summer School 2017 Day 4 was very interesting and interactive!

In the morning session, Michele Lanzinger, from MUSE (Trento), shared his top tips on managing buildings and keeping them attractive.

With Guglielmo Maglio, Città della Scienza, and Kua Patten participants learned ten interesting tips on exhibit management through a tour of Città della Scienza’s Exhibitions. Along the lines of the previous lecture, this tour has taken the participants through the different areas of Corporea, where they were able to understand the critical aspects of exhibit management and maintenance.

The participants of the EMME School met and worked together with Kua Patten and the participants of the DREAM FabLab Academy. The aim was to select a list of “challenges” in the fields of exhibit maintenance and building management, and attempt to solve them with the tools of digital fabrication, robotics, etc.

Tomorrow we’ll learn more about explainers, volunteers and educational programmers.

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 at Città della Scienza: 2nd edition of the festival of Mediterranean cuisine – September 29th to October 1st

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.

Internationalization, meeting with Minister Valeria Fedeli at the Ministry of Education, University and Research

Tuesday 25 July it was held a meeting at the Ministry of Education, University and Research between Minister Valeria Fedeli and the Presidents from the main research institutes, of Technological Cluster of Excellences and CRUI for discussing the main objective and future actions of the internationalization of research and innovation programs that the MIUR carries on with the People’s Republic of China and the Islamic Republic of Iran.

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.

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.

E-LISA srl goes to AAOS (American Academy Orthopaedic Surgery) the most advanced meeting on orthopedics in San Diego

e-LISA (e-Learning Interactive Surgeon Assistant), a Neapolitan startup set in Campania Newsteel at Città della Scienza, made up of engineers, doctors and communication experts, has developed a system to minimize  fails in the diagnosis phase and undergoing surgery, particularly in the recognition and indication of the shoulder fractures treatment process. The startup has developed an algorithm allowing the most appropriate surgical indication on the basis of dozens of parameters entered into the system occurring in fractures. The research allowed to develop a mathematical model scientifically proven capable of calculating up to 600 different combinations of fracture. Neapolitan startup has developed a digital platform dedicated to e-learning and dissemination of pre-operative planning and 3D printing services for the simulation of surgery. e-LISA will give the opportunity for young surgeons to learn new techniques of diagnosis and surgery, through three-dimensional models obtained from CT scans. This solution, already tested in some Italian hospitals, gave the opportunity for surgeons to reduce time, to improve communication with the patient and with the medical team and, above all, to conduct a highly accurate and precise work. The work of e-LISA was developed on the shoulder, but  scientific studies want to achieve the product on other joints difficult to treat such as the elbow, hip and knee .

MARCH 4th, 2017: CORPOREA OPENING
Celebrating Città della Scienza

A big opening ceremony involving a lot of people took place yesterday March 4th for Corporea, the first interactive museum in Italy on the human body, and 3D Planetarium , the most advanced in Europe. Corporea opening happened in the fourth anniversary of the fire that burnt the Science Centre, creating a wave of emotion throughout Italy and beyond.

Opening with President Grasso

In a crowded Newton in the presence of representatives of the scientific, academic, institutional and business world, the director of Mattino, Alessandro Barbano, recalled that “Corporea opening is a magical moment for the whole city.” Senate President, Pietro Grasso, said that “the burning of four years ago took place a few days before my election. The manifestation of solidarity with the workers of Città della Scienza was my first public appearance. So I promised I’d be back here on the occasion of the great revival. Today I kept my promise. ” Città della Scienza President, Vittorio Silvestrini, shared with the audience a deep thought on the current socio-economic environment: “The unequal distribution of wealth is no longer sustainable at economic and social level. We can no longer tolerate social differences, so we have to find an alternative, making sure that the effects of economic activities take into account the quality of life. It seems obvious but, given the times we are living, it is not.” President Eciste, the network of European science museums, Michiel Buchiel, greeted the audience on behalf of the more than 350 organizations that make up the network. “We share the passion of science and education – he said -. There we meet with the world of the institutions to work together, because education is an investment. Science has brought us here, it helps us to live better there, contributes every day to solve new challenges “. Bruno Marquardt, president of Univescience (Paris), and Vincenzo Lipardi, secretary general of Città della Scienza, signed an agreement for the creation of a joint exhibition on the theme of fire. A topic that has deeply moved the story of both structures: both Universcience that Città della Scienza, in fact, have been heavily damaged by fire, and then relaunch emerging at the forefront nationally and internationally. Adriano Coni, responsible for Sustainability and Social Secretariat of RAI, has been rewarded for his efforts for the reconstruction of Città della Scienza, with the most important campaign of crowdfunding ever built in Italy. Lipardi explained that “Corporea is a project of 30 million, the largest investment in culture made in Europe. Four years ago we were dead, nowhere else in the world would have the strength to get up. There was a huge solidarity, a large fundraiser with the crowdfunding method for 1.4 million euro. Now the goal is to remake the Science Centre in three years. Before the fire – he said – Città della Scienza had 350,000 visitors. Now we are aiming to have 200,000, that can become 500,000 when the museum reopened. “

Città della Scienza protagonist of the Bagnoli rebirth

The mayor of Naples, Luigi de Magistris, focused his speech on teamwork between institutions: “I am happy not only for the opening round but because there is the institutional will to revitalize the whole area. Alone is not going anywhere, together we can do so much to prove that the South is the key player for a different Italy.

The President of  Campania Region, Vincenzo De Luca, stressed the importance “of accelerated spending to conclude this work of great importance. From Naples comes the confirmation of great powers“. The Minister of Territorial cohesion and the South, Claudio De Vincenti, stressed the centrality of Bagnoli agenda of the national government. ” the efforts made in the last year and a half, as a government, together with local institutions, we live it with great conviction. Today, after 23 years , new perspectives for Bagnoli raise are apperaing. the draft of Città della Scienza fits perfectly in the urban renewal process, especially in light of the agreement between the Città della Scienza and Invitalia, perfectly consistent with the restoration of the coast “. The rector of the University Federico II of Naples and President of the CRUI, Gaetano Manfredi, has placed emphasis on the effects generated by research. “Many of the ideas exploited here also come from the contributions of our researchers” Important conclusions entrusted to Valeria Fedeli, Minister of Education, University and Research, which in the hours before the opening ceremony visited the Incubator, the D.RE.A.M. FabLab and multimedia classrooms in Città della Scienza. “This place – said – is a reference point for all those who want to change. Here, four years ago, there was an act of intimidation aimed at hurting a vital system, in an area that someone would not growing. Today inaugurates a benefit of the community resource, researchers, students. You are a space of knowledge – the minister Fedeli added – born where criminal will wish you had created the desert. “The ceremony then moved to Corporea Building. Thousands of visitors in the first opening body to the city. 5.000 square meters of the Museum, set on three levels, 14 thematic islands, interactive installations, exhibitions that complement the traditional language with “hands on” experiments. March 19th , 2017, finally opens to the public the spectacular 3D Planetarium.

Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th – Bugs’ House Openings

Friendly Bugs: The Good Side of Animals with six legs

During the weekend of February, 18th and 19th, 2017, bugs will be the protagonists: activities, in fact, will be focused on some of the largest bugs in the world discovering their special role in the field of integrated farming . Lanaro Carmine Bioplanet, an Italian industry expert on the production of useful insects, we will understand how it is possible to you use small predators to limit the effect of harmful insects on plants and avoid the indiscriminate use of pesticides thus making our crops healthier. During the initiative, thanks to the presence of Valitutto, farm in Sicignano degli Alburni (Salerno), you can sample some of the products obtained through integrated farming. We also talk about the role of insects as a possible food of the future. The organoleptic characteristics and the low environmental impact that their farming entails, makes the bugs  the only sustainable solution to produce enough protein to feed a world population growing.
