Il mondo quantistico di Enrico Gazzola, una recensione.

Se le librerie delle nostre città stanno diversificando l’estensione della sezione dedicata alla scienza, così come l’offerta di testi dedicati a smascherare l’inadeguatezza di fondo delle pseudoscienze, un motivo ci sarà. Molti di noi sanno già come quest’ultimo sia un fenomeno complesso, spesso ignoto a coloro che la scienza vera la riconoscono e la ricercanoContinue reading “Il mondo quantistico di Enrico Gazzola, una recensione.”

This is not only a detection: is a beautiful equilibrium

Physicists and astronomers – from all over the world – are still excited after one of the biggest breakthroughs of the decade related to the discovery of gravitational waves and gamma rays’ existence, thanks to the collaboration LIGO-Virgo. I want to make a small reference on gamma rays that are usually thought to be producedContinue reading “This is not only a detection: is a beautiful equilibrium”

Three challenges for education leaders

Given the increasing role of new challenges that people must face today in our societies, there is an increasing need that future citizens will be not only technologically literate but also truly aware of their own environmental problems and challenges that they’ll face in their upcoming future. I know that this statement may sound weirdContinue reading “Three challenges for education leaders”

GIOCA CON LA FISICA, what a journey!

This article presents my last experience in science communication for physics: ‘Gioca con la Fisica’ an experiential activity dedicated to increase children curiosity and deeper interest to physics and scientific principles at the base of inquiry learning. In occasion of the European Researcher Night of this year, many of the students in Physics of theContinue reading “GIOCA CON LA FISICA, what a journey!”

A reflection on the Story of the Universe

If I’m saying the Story of the Universe, what can be first elements of reference? The human story of the universe can be defined as what we understand about the universe that we live in. I can bet lot of us start their day with lots of open questions. Perhaps they are enriched with soContinue reading “A reflection on the Story of the Universe”

When you’ll turn up your eyes to the moon…

Is this title too poetic for a blog science’ passionate? Tell me about it 🙂 So if it bother you or give you a strong particular impression shield it or leave it behind – if you can handle that – until the end of this post. In fact, yesterday I’d the idea for this postContinue reading “When you’ll turn up your eyes to the moon…”

White, Light, Optics

Today I’ve started my day reflecting on the deeper and symbolic meaning that colors may have. For example in ancient Egypt the men related to religion and god adoration was used to dress only in white linen. Perhaps the first analogy that you may have now in mind is how some people are used toContinue reading “White, Light, Optics”

The spectacle of harmony

Today, in a routine full of needs, unpleasant problems and circumstances, lack of stable anchors of reference we seems to have indefinitely forgot the recognizable building blocks (or elements), components of the material world we lived in. In fact, we can see how people are more or less conscious about fire, water, earth and air.Continue reading “The spectacle of harmony”

Highlights from the International Workshop organized in Centro Fermi of Rome, 18-19 May 2017.

Last week I was lucky to attend to the annual international conference held at the Enrico ‘Fermi Center’ in Rome. The Institute of Physics has proved to be a symbol and an extraordinary place for Italian research, for scientific promotion and knowledge in general. A creative environment for the ability to combine individual skills andContinue reading “Highlights from the International Workshop organized in Centro Fermi of Rome, 18-19 May 2017.”

What form of reasoning can allow to set priorities?

This week I’ve dedicated some thoughts to recognize some characteristics of the priorities needed to set up the simple and beautiful frame for a well-grounded scientific theory. The general idea is this one: if a scientific theory is a complex interlocking of concepts, observations, definitions, presuppositions, experimental results and connections to other theories, no singleContinue reading “What form of reasoning can allow to set priorities?”
