A series of events accompanies the exhibition “Vedere l’invisibile”

09 November 2022 - 12 January 2023

Beginning in November, and continuing until 12 January, a series of side events at the exhibition “Vedere l’invisibile”

This is an extensive series of lectures, workshops and conferences designed as a satellite event of the exhibition “Vedere l’invisibile. Dall’infinitamente piccolo all’infinitamente grande”, organised by the Sistema Museale di Ateneo dell’Università di Parma and open to the APE Pama Museo until next 15 January.

It begins on 9 and 23 November with the ‘Scienza e Letteratura’ lecture series The first two lectures provide a historical-methodological overview of the implications of epistemological changes on the representation of the world in literature and the very idea of its representability. The lectures are curated by Federico Laudisa and Massimiliano Tortora.
It continues with three appointments (30 November, 10 January and 12 January) in which the literature-science nexus will be analysed and exemplified through the work of important 20th-century authors: Primo Levi, Italo Calvino and Daniele del Giudice. This second series includes an introductory lecture followed by a teaching workshop more specifically aimed at refresher courses for high school teachers.

On 15 November, we will travel through the galaxy, among stars and planets, with Cristian Carli and Roberto Orosei.

The ADISCO, Associazione Donatrici Sangue Cordone Ombelicale (Umbilical Cord Blood Donors Association), is organising a conference on the afternoon of Tuesday 22 November entitled “Una mamma per amica. La donazione del sangue del cordone ombelicale e il suo utilizzo”.

Medicines will be the focus of Livia Ruffini’s conference ‘Radiopharmaceuticals and Industry: Opportunities and Strategies in the Global Market’, scheduled for Wednesday 30 November.

In the infinite ranges of small and large, the meeting point between technique and the art of imaging could not be missing. On the afternoon of Thursday 1 December, a series of meetings will take place, focusing on the theme of the infinitely small and the infinitely large in photography and painting, curated by Silvio Wolf, Cristina Cesero, Giorgio Milanesi and Gianluca Poldi.

The exhibition is not only aimed at adults and older children. Even the smallest children are involved in the many aspects of the infinitely small and large. On Friday 2 December, Ada Cigala and Claudia Lichene will explain how the science lab can also be suitable for nursery and pre-school. On the same theme of science for children, also the meeting on Tuesday 6 December with Maja Antonietti, Paola Corsaro and Elena Luciano.

After the Christmas break, we will meet again in January with the last two events: on 10 January, Irene Binini and Wolfgang Huemer‘s lecture “Imagining the Impossible”, and on Wednesday 11 January “Material/Immaterial: Light in the Art of the Second Twentieth Century” with Cristina Casero and Alessandra Acocella.
