It comes to an end the cycle of lectures Immaginare il futuro. Conversazioni sui grandi cambiamenti e le sfide del domani (Imagining the future. Conversations about the great changes and challenges of tomorrow) promoted by Intesa Sanpaolo.
The event Passione per la conoscenza, amore per la bellezza: le nuove sfide della ricerca (Passion for knowledge, love for beauty: the new challenges of research) is set for Thursday, 25 October at 6.30 pm in the auditorium of the skyscraper.
The new challenges of scientific research explained by a great protagonist, one of the main actors in the discovery of the Higgs boson. The dream of understanding the special condition which gave rise to the universe and collecting clues about its end. The risks and unknowns of an extraordinary journey, back in time, to the non-place from which everything was born. The story of the great adventure of men and women who explore the most hidden corners of the universe to seek answers to questions that leave everybody breathless. These are the new enterprises of modern visionaries who develop the most advanced technologies, and, together, the knowledge that deeply changes our vision of things and ourselves.
Guido Tonelli, physicist at Geneva’s CERN, Professor of General Physics at the University of Pisa and associate researcher at INFN, is one of the main protagonists of the discovery of the Higgs boson. After working on research projects in Europe and the United States, he dedicated himself to the CMS experiment at CERN and led the collaboration in the crucial moments of the most elusive particle hunt in the history of physics. For his contribution to this important achievement, he has received several international awards and recognitions.
The lecture will last approximately 50 minutes.
The event is free but advanced reservation is required and available on this website from next Friday, 19 October.
On the occasion of the project Immaginare il futuro, conceived by Giulia Cogoli for Intesa Sanpaolo, Sky Arte has made four documentaries on the lectures which will be broadcast on the following dates:
