Festival of Science 2012

25.10.2012 - 04.11.2012

Genoa, October 25 to November 4, 2012 – The tenth edition, “Imagination”

The Festival of Science in Genoa celebrates its tenth year starting this month with the theme Immaginazione. Every year the festival has been able to make science accessible to everybody and to transform it into a fun and informative game. The event marks a balance between the new, adventurous and innovative, and the return of traditions and guests from the past: Edoardo Boncinelli, Luca Cavalli Sforza (the renowned geneticist to whom the exhibit “The Journeys of  Luca Cavalli Sforza" is dedicated), Giulio Giorello, Umberto Guidoni, Piergiorgio Odifreddi, Lisa Randall, Martin Rees, Ian Tattersall and Catherine Vidal.

Also making its return is one of the most fascinating scientific projects ever exhibited: “Simple and Complex,” organized in part by the National Research Council (CNR) and awarded “Best Exhibition” at the Shanghai Science Festival. 
Additionally, a special interactive museum, "Enel 5.0," has been created specifically for the 50-year anniversary of the founding of Italy’s largest power company; with innovative and engaging technological displays, the museum will narrate the historical role of Enel in Italy’s own history, as well as its most important and significant advances and progressions.
