    Content: In 1911, the Nobel Prize for Chemistry was awarded to Marie Curie, eight years after she had received the Nobel Prize for Physics. An extraordinary scientific adventure ended, and the deification of an iconic character and symbol of the amazing transformations of costume which would characterize the following decades began to take root. During the transfer of the Curies' remains to the Pantheon, Pierre Gilles de Gennes wanted to underline Marie's "beauty of self-denial". The Christmas Lecture pays tribute to the dual inheritance which she left us: the strength of scientific rationality against the obscurantism of beliefs and gender equality. The conference traces the most relevant aspects of Marie Curie's life, sharing her extraordinary scientific discoveries, but also underlining socio-cultural and customary aspects and highlighting the historical context of an era which was tumultuously changing.

    Content: Luigi Dei has found his own language through which he, while amusing himself and everyone else, offers us food for thought, information, knowledge and, above all, with continuity and originality, he disseminates science by apparently talking about other things, playing with our emotions, with our history, traditions and common sense. A cultural divertissement in which the author exploits the visibility and prestige of his role as Rector to give credibility and legitimacy to the project of making scientific knowledge more and more accessible and shared, also thanks to his great ability to intertwine themes and languages. Dei uses all the colours of the diversified palette of scientific disciplines constituting our knowledge in order to show us how each of them is assigned an irreplaceable role in that task of understanding reality that science has always taken on. He highlights how science combines method and rigour with creativity and imagination, but he also combines research and scientific knowledge with sensitivity and communication skills. (Laura Solito).

    Content: «Chemistry and fantasy, art and science, photography and music, education and play, technology and communicative desire, civic passion and didactic commitment did not formerly (or not only) create a nicely original and bizarre mixture, but rather a very original score, which invites you to reflect on the operation of objects looking trivial despite not being such; this makes us gaze into the depth of common things and shows them to us in a way which leads us to feel as if we saw them for the first time. The secret lies in the pen of a light-handed writer, a scientist-poet who is a school man and enthusiastically manages to weld inventive energy and scientific expertise together. The opportunity is not to be missed, because a new contact with the world can bring forth new emotions, new thoughts, new feelings. A light hand smudged with plaster »(Gino Tellini).

    Content: «Luigi Dei takes a very personal approach to presenting the life and achievements of Maria Skłodowska-Curie, setting them in the broader context of the history of science and European culture between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. More specifically, he traces the links of the scientist, who twice won the Nobel Prize, with Poland (her homeland) and France (the country in which she lived, worked and made her outstanding scientific discoveries)».

    Content: Based loosely on Primo Levi's 〈i〉Il Sistema Periodico〈/i〉, the play is set in a 〈i〉Fahrenheit 451〈/i〉 scenario. In this world without either books or memory, a man of the street arrives with a bundle of not easily decipherable papers: with the help of the narrative voice, of his friends – Science, Technology and Nature – and of two actors at length off-stage, Primo and his friend Alberto, the man succeeds in reconstructing the episode of the story 〈i〉Cerio〈/i〉. Through memory he thus reconstructs the lost identity, that is our history. Science, Technology and Nature allow the man without memory to master scientific knowledge and free himself from his state. The drama finds its catharsis in a poignant passage, inspired by the story 〈i〉Carbonio〈/i〉, which lyrically sets up a temporal link between an atom of carbon from the smoke of a crematorium and the same dwelling within the body of each one of us: a poetic parabola of a science immersed in the life and history of man. 〈iframe width="640" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/rg8TZA7vnz8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen〉〈/iframe〉

    Content: In this peculiar volume, Luigi Dei gathers a collection of his writings, calling them ‘thoughtful lightness’ as a tribute to a writer he loves: Italo Calvino. The reference at the beginning of the collection is intended as a sign of appreciation and gratitude towards this great Italian intellectual of the last century. Even the structure of the various sections honors the memory of the writer, recalling his ‘Six Memos for the next Millennium’. Brief little stories, animated by the desire to discover everyday life; extracts of speeches characterized by a will to fantasize, imagine and recover the values of visibility; selected parts from greeting speeches on various issues addressed in conferences he attended as a Rector; new theatrical ‘stories’: all of these are the texts that Luigi Dei manages – with sensitivity and great communication skills – to fill with fantasy, imagination, accuracy, diversity, swiftness and thoughtful lightness. And he’s able to do it using a very peculiar language and a captivating style that encourages the reflection on the most important issues of our time.

    Content: Is it possible to disseminate science through social networks? Facebook was created to share thoughts, ideas, sensations and anything mild and fleeting; certainly not for the dissemination of scientific and academic knowledge. On the contrary... by combining the obligatory conciseness of a post, the taste for fantasy at the service of the dissemination of scientific knowledge, and the socialization of such a widespread means of communication, there is a metamorphosis turning the irreversible, ineffable volatility of a social network into the lapidary and realistic fixity of this book of digital cameos, dedicated to many aspects of chemistry, a science which is so inextricably enveloped in our daily life. A “chemical” Rector disguises himself as Alice and ventures into a land, the Facebook land, where the wonders coming from imaginative journeys in matter, in its laws and in its imponderable enigmatic nature, take shape.

    Content: Freely adapted from Primo Levi's The Periodic Table, the drama takes place in a Fahrenheit 451-like scenario. In this world without books or memory, a man from the street appears with some pieces of paper, almost undecipherable: with the help of the narrative voice, of his friends - Science, Technology and Nature - and of two actors, Primo and his friend Alberto, the man manages to reconstruct the episode Cerium’s story. Thanks to the memory, the lost identity, that is our story, is reconstructed. Science, Technology and Nature allow the man without memory to take possession of scientific knowledge and to emancipate himself from his state. The drama finds its catharsis by taking a moving turn, inspired by the short story Carbon, which lyrically creates a timeless connection between a carbon atom of the smoke of a crematorium and the same atom dwelling in the body of some of us, a poetic parable of a science immersed in the life and history of man.
