2006 Edition

Discovery is the theme of the 2006 Science Festival.
Exhibitions, laboratories, shows and special events: for 2006, the Science Festival is planning a series of events that will explore the planet of science from every angle. Science and education meet in a range of "hands-on" experiments in natural science, physics, chemistry, and astronomy laboratories, and in exhibitions dedicated to volcanoes, which will take us on a journey to the centre of the Earth.
Physics and light are at the centre of two large exhibitions, "Science and Consciousness at the Mirror" and "The rays of light". The 2006 Festival, moreover, will take part in two big international projects: "Esciential" and "Wonders", which will bring exhitions and workshop from all accross the Europe.

What's more, this year the Science Festival will welcome outstanding names from the world of science as, among the others: Susan Blackmore, Nicola Cabibbo, Fritjof Capra, Sean Carroll, Gregory Chaitin, Terrence Deacon, Umberto Eco, Artur Ekert, Daniel Kahneman, Michio Kaku, Seth Lloyd, Luciano Maiani, Helga Nowotny, Massimo Piattelli Palmarini, Steven Pinker, Lisa Randall, Giacomo Rizzolatti, Christopher Stringer, Anne Treisman, Robert Trivers.
