Cultural encounters promoted by the “Marconi Galletti Enodi” school and the “Spezia” high school –

A cycle of cultural meetings promoted by the Institute of Ismaili Studies Marconi Galletti Einaudi and the Scientific High School Giorgio Spezia will kick off on Monday 27 February in Domodossola. The theme proposed by the two local senior high schools is “Between School and Science. Let’s Meet the Future!”. The review is divided into seven appointments, taking place between February 27th and April 27th.

“The arguments – which the two institutes explain – are very different from each other; they range from the relationship between art and science to the treatment of muscular dystrophy, from the effects of climate change to the most advanced astronomical observations. The peculiarity of the initiative is that Meetings will be repeated twice; In the morning for students, in the Great Hall of the Marconi Institute Galletti Enodi, via Matilde Ceretti 23 and in the late afternoon, usually from 5.30 to 7 pm, in the Sala Falcioni, former Mellerio church, for the public. The exception is the first appointment, Monday 27 February, which will be double and will take place in the Great Hall in Via Ceretti, at the same time.

At the first meeting, the Prefect of the Civic Museums of Domodossola, Federico Trullettiwill handle issue The relationship between art and science in history. quite yet David Rowenresearcher at IEO “Monzino” in Milan, explains studies onThe use of stem cells in the treatment of muscular dystrophy.

The next meeting, titled “Wearable Devices: Technology and Health within Action,” is scheduled for Thursday, March 9. Participating teachers will be able to obtain a certificate. The initiative is sponsored by the Municipality of Domodossola; The Mario Ruminelli Cultural Association and the Paola Angela Ruminelli Foundation collaborate in its creation.

Art and science between innovations and failures.

Dr.. Federico Trulletti – art historian, director of the Camus Museum in Brno

In the current school system, there is a sub-division between disciplinary areas with a clear distinction between a man of ‘science’ and a ‘man of letters’. This distinction was not so strict in the Renaissance that there are too many “thinkers” to fit into one category. There are, for example, painters who deal with mathematics (and vice versa!), Engineers who deal with painting and astrology. Inspired by the life of Leonardo da Vinci, and in particular by the scientist’s and artist’s training as emblematic of the man who transcends the boundaries of individual disciplines, Communication examines some of the scientific innovations–and with them failures–with a particular interest in the implications in the field of art and everyday life.

Heart plaque, a model for the study of muscular dystrophy.

Dr. Rufina Davide is a researcher at IEO Monzino Milan

Muscular dystrophy is a genetic disorder that causes changes in the skeletal muscles and heart. In particular, cardiomyopathy develops with arrhythmias at the level of the heart, which is one of the leading causes of death in dystrophic patients. Starting with pluripotent stem cells, the mechanisms of this disease are being studied in the laboratory to identify new therapeutic targets and identify drugs that may be useful in improving cardiac symptoms in patients with muscular dystrophy.

Wearables: Technology and health at your fingertips!

Dr.. De Marchi Beatrice – Seeker Live Italia Milan

From fabric to data analysis, the entire production chain has been developed to create wearable technology. Applications range from diagnostics to monitoring of vital parameters, in both the medical and sports fields. Continuous innovation to improve the quality and quantity of measured quantities.

Osola Glaciers: Past, Present, and Future.

Dr Falesa Paolo – Meteorologist at the Prialpin Geophysical Center in Varese

Warming in the Alps is proceeding at twice the rate of our planet, exceeding the two-degree increase since the pre-industrial era. The mountain environment responds quickly to changes in temperature with important consequences. Even the Osola glaciers are retreating rapidly and the development over the past 30 years is worrying and does not bode well for the future.

Ambient Intelligence: Technology at the Service of Man.

Prof. Salis Fabio – Professor of the Milan Polytechnic

Humans interact with many “smart” electronic devices, which are able to adapt their response to the needs of users, responding to their needs and those of society. This is in the most disparate sectors: for well-being and health, for the management and control of the environment and resources, in leisure, leisure, art and culture.

Star energy for a sustainable future, today?

Dodaro Alessandro – Researcher at ENEA Rome

The demand for energy is increasingly high and reducing environmental impact is driving research towards energy sources that ensure climate neutrality. Nuclear fusion is the hope for a green future that reduces the legacy of radioactive waste but presents scientific and technological challenges. Today, however, it is necessary to intervene with short-term solutions that support decarbonisation: for this reason many industrialized countries have decided to return to intensive investment in nuclear fission.

James Webb Space Telescope, The Universe in a Grain of Sand.

Dr. Vitale Fabrizio – astronomer of the INAF Astronomical Observatory in Rome

The James Webb Space Telescope, an infrared space telescope, is capturing the media for its stunning images of celestial bodies, from nearby planets to the depths of the universe, in unprecedented detail. The long journey that led to the commissioning of this technological gem (20,000 people involved in 27 years in the business) is an example of the excellence that human ingenuity can achieve.
