 JE.III

Slowscience@NanoInnovation 2022
  

September 20-21-22

Chair: Vittorio MORANDI, CNR-IMM, Bologna
 Co-organized with
SlowScience rid

Doing science is serious business; it means taking the time to observe, understand and learn, formulate questions and perhaps give answers. In this spirit, the SLOWSCIENCE initiative was created. The starting point was: if specialists need time to understand the universe around us, all the more so the nonspecialist needs time to assimilate information. What better place than the border space of the Dario Nobili Library of the CNR in Bologna, a highly specialized but public science library, to spread passion, culture, and scientific excellence? We built a shelf of science-themed books (from comics to essays, from biographies to science fiction novels). From those books, a series of public appointments has been born with specialists from different fields of scientific research who tell about science involving people in an informal and barrier-free way. What joins the experts involved is the desire to stimulate knowledge in no longer sectionalized way, but embrace and foster dialogue between seemingly distant contexts.

What Slowscience@NanoInnovation proposes from Sept. 20-22 is a three-meeting journey exploring the interactions between art and science.

This is how comic strips tell the mathematical insights of a brilliant young woman, the figurative language of geometric modules allows for the telling of trigonometric knowledge in history, and the music becomes a tool to navigate some scientific disciplines.

THE MIRZAKHANI ISSUE
JE.III.1
BROCHURE
Presentation of the UNDER THE SIGN OF TORUS, published by Comics & Science, the CNR Edizioni series.

The graphic novel, by Silvia Ziche and Davide La Rosa, is contained in the volume "THE MIRZAKHANI ISSUE", which presents the life and research of Maryam Mirzakhani, the first woman to receive the prestigious FIELDS MEDAL in 2014, the highest recognition for those mathematicians.

Is it possible to present science in comics? What do mathematicians do? Is it true that women can do math at the highest levels?

These and other questions will be answered during the meeting.

PATTERNLAND. THE INEQUALITY IN ART
JE.III.2
BROCHURE

From the Greek and Roman worlds to our Middle Ages and the splendid Islamic tessellations, Sciuto's formulas (which use only the mathematical and trigonometry of the time, unchanged since the 2nd century B.C. for more than 1,600 years) go further, touching on art and artists of the early 20th century, with geometric effects sometimes rigorous sometimes psychedelic, but always surprising.


Are you ready for an immersive journey into the tessellated world of patterns?

MUSIC AS THE ALGEBRA OF THE SOUL
JE.III.3
BROCHURE

Music has great power over our lives: it can change our emotional states.

But why do we like music? And ultimately: what is music?

To answer these questions we will embark on a journey that will frame the musical phenomenon from a multidisciplinary point of view: mathematics, physics, sociology, cognitive science, and, of course, art will guide us to fully understand its meaning.
