From 22 October to 1 November 2020, the Festival of Science returns to Genoa, the event that every year opens scientific learning to the general public in simple and interactive language.
The Science Festival is one of the largest events of it’s kind aimed at spreading scientific culture at an international level and has become a reference point for promoting science. The 11 day Festival is divided into a series of meetings, workshops, shows and conferences which present science in an innovative and engaging way, through interactive and transversal events. The participation of leading national and international guests enrichs the event, creating lasting collaborations with important figures and institutions around the world.
Now in its 18th edition, the Festival this year has as its inspiration "Waves" and is hosted by the United Kingdom: a word that refers to multiple aspects of our lives, from sea waves to brain waves, from the waves that shake our lives in earthquakes to the electromagnetic waves which we know as light and colour; hosted by a country birthplace to some of history’s greatest scientists, such as Newton and Hawking.
