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 .

It looks like a modern 3D cinema, with spectacular films that allow visitors to travel to the mysteries of the universe as well as of the past. In addition, the Planetarium – thanks to the skillful collaboration of astronomers and researchers – offers shows and movies, even in 2D, both live and recorded to be immersed in a night sky, discover the cosmos as if we were the ancient Greek astronomers, or if we were in a great contemporary telescope, retrace the space missions, follow the probes and spacecraft travels that have explored the solar system, or even explore the dark matter to understand why the universe is as it appears to us, where we come from, and how it has evolved over billions of years.

Numbers

The new planetarium has a diameter of 20 meters, well 113 seats and one of the most advanced projection technologies in the world. The latest generation three dimensional projection system – a Digistar 6 of the American company Evans & Sutherland – the special position of the dome and the use of 3D glasses, guarantee a full involvement of the spectator effect, aided special acoustics can offer the public a unique spectacle of the universe and enveloping. In short, Città della Scienza got a new piece that makes it even more fascinating and fun approach to wonderfull world of Science.

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.

SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT
4th AND 5th FEBRUARY 2017

The activities of this weekend are dedicated to the discovery of the environment and how we can help it with small daily actions; we will place in the garden a compost bin to recycle the remains of our food.

Each of us, in the garden or on the terrace, can achieve a small composting plant. It ‘a simple device that allows us to recycle the remains of our food to get compost and fertilizer for plants. But how can we turn waste into useful substances for plants? Real protagonists of this transformation are small organisms that live in the ground, which play an essential role in the health of ecosystems. 
During the week end there will be a  scientific laboratory in Children Lab entitled “the jellyfish in the bottle”: Observe a gelatinous and transparent jellyfish swaying in the water is a fascinating spectacle, yes, but at the same time it can be frightening.

CITTÀ DELLA SCIENZA’S
MISSION IN CHINA

From 12 to 18 January Città della Scienza, on behalf of the Ministry of Education, University and Research, went to China on a mission to meet with the main Chinese partners of the China-Italy Science, Technology & Innovation Program, the internationalization program between Italy and China on science, technology and innovation coordinated by Città della Scienza.

On the occasion of the mission it was held a meeting with the partners of the Beijing Association for Science and Technology, where the Secretary General of Città della Scienza Vincenzo Lipardi met with the President of the Beijing Association for Science and Technology Ma Lin and other high level personalities for discussing the current situation of the cooperation between ​​Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei and Italy, as well as to discuss on the 2017 edition of the Sino-Italian Exchange Event, the internationalization program of R&I systems promoted by the Campania Region.

It was also held a meeting with the Beijing Municipal Commission for Science and Technology’s leaders to discuss the organization of the activities scheduled in the 2017 edition such as the China-Italy Science, Technology & Innovation Week, promoted by the Ministry of Education and the Chinese Ministry of Science & Technology, that will be held next October in China, and the Mission of the National Technological Cluster scheduled for next May.

Furthermore, the meeting with the International Technology Transfer Network was also extremely fruitful. It was attended by the Secretary General John Zhang and the main points of discussion were the cooperation activities for Italian and Chinese startups and incubators and soft-landing actions scheduled for the 2017.

In conclusion, Città della Scienza attended the III Meeting of the Italian Business Community in China at the Yanqi Lake in Beijing from 13 to 15 January 2017, organized by the Italian Embassy in Beijing, the ITA-Italian Trade Agency and the Italian Chamber of Commerce in China.

About the light .

Light is one of the most fascinating mystery. Source of life and one of the main means of communication between living beings and the nature, the light has thousands of aspects at the same time attractive and obscure.

During this weekend in Città della Scienza, you can find some of these aspects through the laboratories and the science-show devoted to this topic

They also will address scientific insights on the issues of bioluminescence , the properties of living organisms to produce lighton their own.

Observations of lantern fish, squid, jellyfish and art scientific laboratoriesfor children and adults.

Sunday – at 11.30 and at 1 pm – an amazing Science Show suitable for all visitors entitled “The Invisible Man”  will take place . Light propagates but not always does the same way, deceives us and teases us, carries its information and transfers those that rely; at least that’s what we think!

A curiosity: it is a wave or a particle?

The XX Conference of the
Scientific Counsellors

The innovation that speaks Italian is the title of the XX Conference of the Italian Scientific Counsellors in the world which takes place today and tomorrow in Rome at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and involves Città della Scienza together with the main leaders of the world of research, university, innovative companies and startups. Two days dedicated to the connection between the national system of research and innovation and those who represent it abroad through the Embassies.

“Science as a tool for the Italian diplomacy in the world”: this is the line by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Angelino Alfano, and the Minister of Education, University and Research, Valeria Fedeli, opened the conference.

Thanks to the scientific cooperation we can find answers to the current global challenges represented by the sustainable development, security and peace, and in this way, the network of scientific counsellors in the world and the commitment of all research organizations are fundamental. A path that also will see Italy involved with the organization of the G7 for Science that will be held in Turin in September 2017.

As mentioned by Minister Fedeli, China and Iran are two priority countries and Città della Scienza, coordinator of the internationalization program of the research and innovation systems, is at the core of this strategy, and in 2017 will organize the China-Italy Innovation Forum in October in China and will see the launch of the first Iran-Italy Innovation Forum to be held in Tehran next April 19-20.

AGREEMENT SIGNED
IN TEHRAN

It was signed yesterday, 12 December, by Vincenzo Lipardi, Secretary-General of Città della Scienza and Director Piri of the Iranian Ministry of Science, the agreement for the construction of the Italo-Iranian Innovation Forum. The agreement is the result of the will and commitment of the Iranian Minister of Science Mohammad Farhadi and the Italian Ambassador in Tehran Mauro Conciatori, and involves the construction of a very ambitious program for the internationalization of research innovation systems between Italy and Iran.

The agreement follows the resumption of bilateral relations between Italy and Iran re-launched in January 2016 with the declaration of a roadmap in the political, economic, cultural and scientific sectors.

Governments have proposed launching an Italo-Iranian Innovation Forum on the China-Italy Science, Technology & Innovation Week model, coordinated by Città della Scienza, to create a stable platform for networking and business matching between the two countries in research and innovation.

In late January, there will be a first mission of the Iranian Ministry in Città della Scienza, intended to prepare the first edition of the Forum to be held in April 2017 in Tehran.

VINCENZO LIPARDI: INTERVISTA A
IL MATTINO E AL TG3 CAMPANIA

Di seguito le interviste rilasciate da Vincenzo Lipardi, Segretario Generale di Città della Scienza, a Il Mattino in edicola il 3 dicembre e al TG3 Campania del 2 dicembre 2016.

Da Il Mattino del 3 dicembre 2016
di GIUSEPPE CRIMALDI

L’ intervista
«Una prima importante verità, ma non è tutta la verità».
La strategia «Menti raffinate dietro le fiamme qualcuno interessato a rimescolare le carte»

«Questa sentenza apre una prima e importante porta sulla verità del rogo di Città della Scienza, ma non fa luce su tutta la verità. Se a tre anni e mezzo dai fatti dobbiamo prendere atto che l’unico colpevole del disastro è un guardiano, allora no, non ci stiamo». A Vincenzo Lipardi il verdetto emesso ieri dai giudici del Tribunale di Napoli lascia l’amaro in bocca.
Il consigliere delegato di Città della Scienza non ha peli sulla lingua, e chiede che le indagini proseguano.
«Vogliamo il nome e cognome dei mandanti e degli esecutori materiali di quell’attentato».

Dov’ è che secondo lei l’ indagine si è arenata?
«Dal principio. Nessuno ha parlato, nessuno ha collaborato. In un’area complessa come quella di Bagnoli, notoriamente controllata dai clan, può sembrare quasi scontato. E se nessuno parla è forse perché qualcuno ha paura di un manager di 52 anni e di uno scienziato 80enne?
Stiamo bene attenti alle semplificazioni, cercando di trovare la soluzione più comoda e più semplice che finisce con l’indebolire tutti, a cominciare dalla città di Napoli».

Insomma, dietro l’incendio di Città della Scienza c’era solo la camorra?
«Quando nessuno parla e collabora vuol dire che c’è omertà, e dunque anche paura vera. Dagli atti dell’inchiesta giudiziaria è emerso che il clan D’Ausilio aveva già programmato per ben due volte un raid, solo nel 2010, proprio a Città della Scienza. Mi domando: è solo una coincidenza? Poi, dopo l’attentato del 2013, Bagnoli è rientrata al centro dell’attenzione nazionale come una delle priorità di Napoli, il che ha avuto effetti sicuramente positivi e benefici per la città. Se tutto questo è vero allora mi chiedo ancora: c’è voluto quel disatro per rimettere anche Bagnoli al centro dell’agenda Napoli?».

Ma lei un’ idea su chi sia stato il regista del rogo del 2013 se l’ è fatta?
«Io non faccio il magistrato. I beni della Fondazione sono della Regione Campania. Posso solo immaginare che dietro l’ incendio doloso, appiccato con tecnica che richiedeva specifiche competenze criminali, c’ era qualcuno interessato a rimescolare le carte.
Volevano rifare tutto, a cominciare dal lato mare: gli artefici del raid sono gli stessi che immaginavano un grande business, non tanto per l’ oggi ma per l’ immediato domani.
A fronte di tuto questo vorei anche ricordare che, dopo la devastazione, la Fondazione non ha chiuso, è andata avanti, ha trovato la solidarietà concreta della gente, sebbene ci sentissimo tutti allora in trincea. I dipendenti sono rimasti per un anno senza stipendio, e nonostante tutto sono andati avanti.
Nonostante tutto…».

Cioè? Nonostante che cosa?
«Con la Procura abbiamo collaborato sin dall’ inizio e abbiamo fornito il nostro contributo. Se avessi avuto qualcosa da nascondere le carte le avrei tenute altrove, e non in ufficio dove sono state trovate. Al di là della macchina del fango, dei corvi, dei dossieraggi e anche di certi articoli di stampa che provavano a orientare le indagini. Gliene dico un’altra: solo dopo il deposito degli atti, leggendo le intercettazioni, ho scoperto che lo stesso Cammarota (l’ imputato condannato ieri a sei anni reclusione per l’ incendio di Città della Scienza, ndr) aveva organizzato un attentato nei miei confronti».

Si sente soddisfatto da questa sentenza?
«Solo in parte. Perché dopo tre anni e mezzo da quei fatti manca ancora una bella fetta di verità. Aspettiamo con ansia che vengano individuati e perseguiti i veri responsabili del gesto criminale. Prendo atto del verdetto e mi auguro che parallelamente si possa arivare adesso a esecutori e mandanti.
Davanti a un crimine efferato qual è quello compiuto da chi appicca le fiamme a un museo importantissimo per la città – che è un luogo simbolo per Napoli – non ci si può certo fermare alle responsabilità di un custode. Non ci si può fermare all’anello debole di una catena».

FIRE OF CITTA’ DELLA SCIENZA
GUP judgment and interviews with Lipardi

Below is the article that appeared in ilmattino.it, december 2nd.

Paul Cammarota was sentenced to six years imprisonment for the burning of the Città della Scienza. An incident that was occurred on the night between 3 and 4 March 2013, in Naples, when the Coroglio museum center was literally devoured by the flames. Throughout their indictment, the prosecutor Michele del Prete and Ida Teresi had asked for a sentence of six years in prison for complicity in arson. Welcomed, therefore, the request of the Prosecutor. Says lawyer Giuseppe De Angelis, a civil party lawyer for Città della Scienza: “Now we expect that the prosecutors does not desist and find others guilty”.
In courtroom also the lawyer Ilaria Criscuolo, on behalf of the company Le Nuovole.

WEEKEND 3rd and 4th DECEMBER
AT CITTA’ DELLA SCIENZA

Next week end Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th December at Città della Scienza is dedicated to tomato and it will be possible to taste the biggets Ragù sauce (Saturday 3rd) and a day dedicated to Astronomy (Sunday 4th)

Saturday  December 3rd

POMODOREIDE
G.N.A.M. Village

Deepening nutritional issues and properties of tomatoes as well as their origin and the local culinary traditions.

Tomato, one of the most important symbols of the agricultural food production of Neapolitan and Mediterranean cuisine is not born in Naples but is associated to our city: this shows the ability to contaminate and be contaminated: workshops, performances and guided tastings with even the biggest Ragù sauce in the world!

REMEMBERING
MARCO SENESE

It was just  a short days after that damn March 4, 2013 – when our Science Centre was set on fire – that we meet Marco Senese, an engineer with whom we had an immediate feeling.
He was shiny, with great enthusiasm, with great desire “to give”, rational, tough; but at the same time he was kind, soft, a gentleman: a rare person to find in our life.
Marco came to Citttà della Scienza with a clear vision: as member of the Board of Inarcassa Foundation, he wished to propose to the idea – innovative – to sponsor the costs and premiums for the competition act to design our new Science Centre.
The idea got us excited too, and found immediate acclaim at Inarcassa Foundation, which – thanks to a task force there which even Marco was part – put in place a procedure which proved to be an excellence in Italy because its transparency and enhancement of young professionals.
In this process Marco Senese was always very close, and he did it with grace and politeness that were his own characteristic.
Three years have passed since then, and think that from now we’ll have to work and live without Marco, his advice, his smiles and his skills, there is really hard.
Hello Mark, we already miss you!
Vittorio

A LITERARY PARK IN BAGNOLI
telling “disposal”

A LITERARY PARK IN BAGNOLI TO TELL “DISPOSAL”
insipred to the romance of Ermanno Rea
Wednesday November 23rd at 9.30
Galilei Theatre 104, Città della Scienza

 “The Dismissal” by Ermanno Rea is a work on the very delicate and complex stage, who has lived and continues to live the Bagnoli district. On the one hand a very cumbersome past; the other an unknown future; in the middle of this experience through the main characters of the novel who are living the everyday life of a neighborhood that loses a landmark production so determined as Italsider.
The stories and images evoked by Rea in his novel are still very current. Its updated reading and “enhanced” through the project of the literary park is a contribution to the deepening of an historical period which continues to be very significant for the city of Naples.
With the literary park will try to fit between past and future, giving substance to the present and finding in Rea elements suggestions to tell the urban transformation in progress.
The protagonists of this project are the Bagnoli district, and the younger generation, especially students of Liceo Labriola Bagnoli.
This High School and Città della Scienza, in fact, work together, within the project of “alternating training”, stimulating the young people involved to reflect on the issues arising opportunities of the knowledge economy; the realization of the literary park inspired by “The Disposal” will be the project work of the school year 2016/17.
The route is divided into different phases starting from the study author and his works, followed by a work on the identification of communication tools to be deployed to achieve the literary park, ending with a promotion work and cultural animation project.

VISIT OF THE DELEGATION OF THE
SHANGHAI CAOHEJING HI-TECH PARK

On Thursday 10 November a high-level delegation from the Shanghai Caohejing Hi-Tech Park came to visit Città della Scienza, that is one of the most relevant technological parks in China. The Park covers a 14 sq.km area, it hosts more than 2.500 Chinese and foreign enterprises that work in the high tech field and in the last thirty years of activities it has developed and consolidated a big network in the whole world. The Park’s main activity sectors are IT, Biotechnologies, New Materials, Automation, Clean Energy and other innovative sectors.

After the welcome addresses, both parts have shared the main lines of cooperation that aim at strengthening  the relationship among the Shanghai area and Città della Scienza, particularly in terms of cooperation on startups as well as on digital fabrication, as demonstrated by the strong interest of the Chinese delegation in the D.RE.A.M Fablab of Città della Scienza. Moreover, it emerged a strong willingness in building solid cooperation between the Shanghai Caihejing Hi-Tech Park and the EBN-European Business Network, of which Mr. Vincenzo Lipardi is member of the Board of Directors.

According to the schedule of the meeting, the Chinese delegation visited the spaces of Città della Scienza: the BIC Business Innovation Centre (particularly, some innovative start-ups, for instance Techno Inn), Casa Cina, where the International Technology Transfer Centre is headquartered, and finally the D.RE.A.M. – Digital and Research in Advanced Manufacturing FabLab, where all ongoing activities have been introduced, raising a particular interest in the possibility of involving Chinese participants in the D.RE.A.M. Academy, that will start in the beginning of 2017.

Next Thursday, November 10th, there will be a special prize ticket, 3.50 euros, to visit the museum and attend activities of the “World Day of the Science Center and the Museum of Science / World Science Day for Peace and Development”.

Between October 1 and October 22, NASA asked museums and science centers around the world to participate in a global experiment collecting observations of clouds while NASA satellites were overhead. As part of the part of International Science Center and Science Museum Day (ISCSMD), the experiment built upon UNESCO’s theme of “Science for Peace and Development.” The goal was to create new ways for museums and science centers worldwide to proactively address global sustainability while reaching increasingly diverse audiences. More than 900 cloud observations, including more than 5,500 photos, came in. The white dots on this map show each observation submitted through the app in that period. The red dots represent science centers participating in the global experiment. The observations are distributed internationally.
Several of the observations lined up with satellite overpasses, and this video shows three examples (from September 2016) from the early afternoon overpasses of Aqua, CALIPSO, and CloudSat, NASA satellites that fly together in formation as part of the A-train constellation of satellites. By taking ground-based cloud observations at the same time, citizen scientists are helping NASA scientists interpret the satellite data. Through the GLOBE Observer app, a person can report what kind of clouds are in the atmosphere, estimate how high the clouds are, and indicate how much of the sky is cloudy. Satellites can do some of the same things, but see clouds from above. By combining both citizen and satellite observations, scientists get a much more complete understanding of what is happening in the atmosphere. This will help address questions about changes in the water cycle and freshwater availability.

SITO_WEB_cds-home-cina

Great success for the second and final day of the ITALY-CHINA SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION WEEK 2016, dedicated to Italy-China Innovation Forum, Europe’s largest networking and business matching event in the fields of research and innovation, which has already seen protagonists Bergamo and Bologna, to promote a continuous dialogue between Italy and China on innovation, science and technology and building technological, productive and commercial partnerships, within innovative research-enterprise contexts of the two countries.

The closing ceremony was held in Newton Hall at Città della Scienza, with a great audience composed by investors, entrepreneurs and Chinese researchers and at the presence of the Italian Minister for Research Stefania Giannini and Chinese Minister of Science and Technology Wan Gang.

Vincenzo Lipardi, CEO of Città della Scienza opened the session, after the musical performance of Italian and Chinese students of the Conservatory of Naples San Pietro a Majella, with a warm welcome to the city of Naples. The CEO stressed Naples ability to combine music, art, and its long history and culture with a strong drive for innovation, as evidenced by the commitment to scientific cooperation promoted by the Città della Scienza. Lipardi gave a special thank to Minister Wan Gang, for decades of successful cooperation with Italian country, to Tian WenVice President at BAST and Cao Jianye – Counsellor for Science and Technology at Chinese Ambassede in Italy. “Thanks to initiatives like Italy-China Week, Italy is now a more credible partner for China, as well as China is for Italy,” added the CEO “and both countries understand that the enhancement of their own cultures, art and historical and cultural heritage should be combined with science, innovation and technology”.

Then Aoshuang Yan, General Manager at Beijing Municipal Science & Technology Commission, intervened on behalf of Beijing Municipality, underlining that Chinese capital has become a key center for innovation and that “to further improve there is need to engage in international cooperation projects such as the Italy-China Week, because working synergistically improves the quality of projects”.

Then intervened Valeria Fascione, Campania Region Councillor for Startup Innovation and Internationalization, who reiterated the administration’s commitment to adopt regional strategies of innovation and internationalization to improve the competitiveness of the territory. “Our great commitment with colleagues in the SIEE resulted in a considerable improvement in quality of our scientific and technological cooperation project with China” stated the Councillor, recalling the great success of the novelties of this edition, the Italy-China Best Startup Showcase, which involved 22 innovative and “market proven” startups – 11 coming from China and 11 from Italy. Engaging in cooperative projects means “to open up ourselves to the world, to research and innovation, and this is the best wish I would like to address to all our young citizens” concluded the Councillor.

Soon after there was the intervention of the Ambassador of PRC in Italy Li Ruiyu, who underlined the impressive results of cooperation processes with Italy over the past few years, underlining the commitment made by the Chinese Government in the frame of G20 to implement a strategy based on sustainable development.

The President of Young Entrepreneurs of Confindustria Marco Gay, via video link, emphasized that such initiatives are opportunities to strengthen cooperation with China, stressing the ”Confindustria’s commitment to be closer to businesses that undertake processes internationalization.”

Then followed the intervention of the Mayor of Naples, Luigi de Magistris, who has emphasized, at a time of strong technological innovation, the need to protect and enhance human capital, “building an industry that preserves environment and territory”.

After two videos on the stages of Bergamo and Bologna, commented by the Rectors of the Universities of Bergamo and Alma Mater Studiorum, Marco Cantamessa – PNI Cube and Giuliano Noci – Vice Rector of the Polytechnic of Milan, stressed the start of cooperation on startup between Italy and China, in particular through the two initiatives launched within the Week: Italy-China Best Startups Showcase, China-Italy Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition.

The session then saw the most awaited moment with the interventions of Ministers. Minister Wan Gang stressed the growing success of the Week over the years, pointing out that “it has become a reference model for Sino-Italian and Sino-European and that innovation is a necessary choice for sustainable development. China aims to strengthen international cooperation in accordance with a win-win strategy to deepen the dialogue on innovation. ” The Minister concluded by stressing that the two countries have a duty to “seize the strategic opportunities that innovation brings with it to rise to the challenges ahead.”

Minister Giannini especially wished to thank Minister Wan Gang, stressing that the countries share secular cultural and scientific relations. “Italy is ready to face global challenges, especially through the research results with a strategy that must not be a slave to the present but should envisage long-term programs.”

In his speech, Wu Jianjun, Director of 5G R & D Huawei European Innovation Institute stated the importance of “focusing on a network infrastructure of 5G for improved connectivity-oriented cloud. There’s a need to create a diversified traffic for greater control of the 5G, namely to create a unified standard to ensure greater participation of projects to ensure greater control of 5G: a technology that can be affordable for all people and a more controlled communication channel”.

Maria Cristina Russo, Director of International Cooperation – DG for Research & Innovation European Commission emphasized that “cooperation is a key element of European Union. A greater focus on research and innovation can improve Europe’s competitiveness. The global partnership generated funds and has strongly developed economy: China is an important technology partner for Europe and there is a strong Ministerial dialogue on Innovation, to launch joint projects with Italy. Cooperation leads to the creation of a relationship of trust and enhances innovation and social fundamentals, strengthening the relationships and improving access to international the programs. Italy – China Science, Technology & Innovation Week is a significant experience that allows us to draw some ideas to look at new investment at European level “.

R.I.P.
CARLO

The way we like thinking of you…

Carlo D’Angiò at Città della Scienza, March 4th, 2016

It was in spring 1987 when we thought about a “satellite event” of the National Physics Congress that would be held in October in Naples. I talked with him too, we discussed and many, original and beautiful ideas came out, still ruling and, over all, generated a brilliant title, “Futuro Remoto”: enclosing a whole world, representing, in two only words, the most effective synthesis of everything that we said during our long conversations.
And “Futuro Remoto” was.

Since 1987 the years have flown by, and our frequent meetings from everyday have become inevitably more sporadic; sometimes it happened that we had not seen for months, but – as when, friendships are deep, true and strong – it seemed that we had left there the day before.

And so it was until last winter, when he helped us a lot in organizing the event with which, on March 4th, we presented “Corporea” building to the city and to national institutions; the event culminated with a “big concert”, in the Newton hall overflowing audience of young, boys, adults, and also of “now old” like me; I wanted to stay up until late at night with him – with You , Carlo – to hear playing and singing like thirty years ago.
Thirty years we have lived intensely, together, forever.
Bye, Carlo

Yours Vittorio

Paolo Gasparini, one of the greatest friends of the Fondazione Idis-Città della Scienza and a member of its Assembly of Founders, is passed away yesterday.

Paolo Gasparini was a professor emeritus in the Department of Physics of the University of Naples Federico II and president of AMRA, the center of expertise on the analysis of environmental risk.
Geophysical of great value, Paul was also director of the Osservatorio Vesuviano from 1970 to 1983. Author of many studies and publications, Paul has always combined the passion for searching with an equally keen interest in science communication collaborating, since the early years, with Futuro Remoto and then with the Città della Scienza. His vision of science as a resource to be shared with all citizens – especially about issues of great social importance, such as the prevention of seismic risk – has translated into interactive exhibits, educational projects, conferences.
The whole community of Città della Scienza is close with affection to his loved ones, his many students and colleagues, his friends.

Our dear friend and colleague, CEO of the Kuwait Scientific Center, Mr. Mijbil Almutawa, passed away yesterday.

The news is very shocking and hard to absorb but we like to remember the wonderful spirit he had which was contagious to anyone around him.  Mijbil was one of the founders of the NAMES Network and its President for two terms.
Mijbil also helped us sustain EMME, one of the most important projects in NAMES in partnership with our sister network, Ecsite, with Città della Scienza and other relevant scientific institutions.  His achievements and impact do not stop here and he will be remembered for fascinating conversations where we always learnt something new from him; for his humor and positivity as well as his hard work.
We share our condolences with his family, friends and the Kuwait Scientific Center.

Vincenzo Lipardi, CEO of Città della Scienza says: “Remembering Mijbil, I indelibly carved his piercing glance when he asked me during the Science Centre World Congress in Cape Town to build together a place for the dialogue between the Arab world and Europe. The idea of the EMME Summer School is born there, with the scope to build a bridge between close people but divided by so many geographical, political and religious barriers.
Mijbil, who established the most beautiful science center of the Arab world, felt so much the importance of a real dialogue that could give to NAMES – another baby he contributed to initiate- the strength to spread science, but also the culture of peace and cooperation in a land where sometimes religious sectarianism, division and unfortunately war are prevailing.
Mijbil has been for me, first of all a brother, with whom I shared many reflections and visionary thought, but also a person with whom talking about amusing things and stories.
I will miss Mijbil very much and his leadership will miss to the international movement of science center.”
