From 14th to 17th June 2023, the third edition of the “Galileo Galilei Science&Space Festival” will take place, a festival dedicated to the public dissemination of scientific topics and the promotion of the extraordinary network of Italian researchers in Italy and abroad.
This science festival, which is free and open to the public upon reservation, aims at testifying the leading role played by Italy in the field of science and technological research.
The third edition presents some changes: it will be held over four days, with an online opening and in-presence sessions on the following days in three different locations: the Riedberg Campus of the Goethe-Universität and the hall of the Frankfurter Kunstverein in Frankfurt, and again, as in previous years, the ESA-ESOC Press Centre in Darmstadt. The speakers will be Italian scientists and researchers working in leading universities and research centres, including in our consular district. The talks will be in Italian and English.
Let us now turn to the guests of the 2023 edition of the G&G Festival. The festival will be opened by Nobel Prize-winner professor Giorgio Parisi, who on Wednesday 14th June at 6:45 p.m. via Zoom connection from Italy, will speak about In a Flight of Starlings.
