Scienza e vergogna

Today, Thursday 17th November at 5pm, during the 80th anniversary of the promulgation of Italian racial laws, in the frame of the project 1938-2018, will be open the exhibition “Scienza e vergogna. L’università di Torino e le leggi razziali”

(Science and shame. The University of Turin and racial laws)

Palazzo del Rettorato, via Po 17 – Torino

The exhibition will be open until Thursday 28th February 2018 

It will be open, with free entry, from Monday to Friday, from 10am to 6pm.

 

Among the events there will be exhibitions and conferences, “1938-2018.A 80 anni dalle leggi razziali”, whose main exponent is the Museo Diffuso della Resistenza. The Università degli Studi di Torino organizes the exhibition Scienza e vergogna. L’Università di Torino e le leggi razziali in the sala Athenaeum of the historical library “Arturo Graf” inside the Palazzo del Rettorato (entrances: via Po 17 and  via Verdi 8) in Turin.

The exhibition expresses the awareness of the dramatic relation that the university had with this crucial moment of Italian history.

The project of the exhibition, by Giacomo Giacobini, Silvano Montaldo ed Enrico Pasini of the Sistema Museale di Ateneo, and with the collaboration of Paolo Novaria of the Archivio Storico, reflects the ambiguity of the relation of the university of Turin with this aspect of the past. The university of today identifies with the victims, the university of then, which is the same of today from the institutional point of view, was justifier and executor, cooperating in defining the scientific, or pseudo-scientific, framework which prepared laws; which from the administrative point of view put in execution, with the utmost diligence, the action of driving away people who were discriminated and welcome the ones who took their place. In addition, through students and teachers, it supported racial propaganda and mobilization, adding more hate against the victims.

 

In the opening of the exhibition will take part:

  • Fabio Levi – presentation of the “Progetto 1938-2018. A 80 anni dalle leggi razziali”
  • Alberto Piazza – inaugural conference
  • Silvano Montaldo – presentation of the exhibition.

The visit of the exposition will follow.

 

Inside the project 58 biographies of people expelled from the university have been restored. You can find them in the website.

Authors of the biographies: Francesco Campobello, Marco Galloni, Pierangelo Gentile, Livia Giacardi, Giacomo Giacobini, Edoardo Greppi, Erika Luciano, Gianluigi Mangiapane, Marta Margotti, Walter Meliga, Elisa Mongiano, Silvano Montaldo, Eloisa Mura, Paola Novaria, Enrico Pasini, Andrea Pellizzari, Luigi Provero, Aldo Sandulli, Giangiorgio Satragni.

RiStory

Turin is to be discovered, not only in its urban fabric, but also in the metropolitan one. In the cities which surround Turin the culture is moving and leads to unique events.  One of these is RiStory, a festival entirely centered on short stories, which will take place in Rivalta di Torino. RiStory lasts three days (from 5th to 7th October 2018) and wants to rediscover a literary genre, the one of short stories, which is often obscured by the large and popular fame of the novel.

The rooms of the library and the Castello di Rivalta, ancient castle on the Trebbia valley, will house this first festival, planned by the artistic director Alessandro Perissinotto, writer and university teacher in Turin.

With reading, meetings with school students and artistic contamination between music and narration, RiStory wants to become a place of national cultural debate, by restoring and conveying high values of literature, trough a genre that is popular and easy to reach.

The aim, said Nicoletta Cerrato, cultural councilor in Rivalta, is to create a permanent workshop on short stories, also thanks to the important partnerships with the Università degli Studi di Torino  and the Teatro Stabile. In fact, together with the festival, will also start Lab, a literary monthly hothouse, whose audience, guided by writers and scholars, will be able to think about the writing of short stories.

The first guest of RiStory will be the writers Dario Voltolini and Maurizio De Giovanni, together with the president of the Ordine dei Giornalisti, Alberto Sinigallia, and the musicians Massimo Bubola and Boosta. Everyone of them has a great interest in short stories.

urban nature

Urban Nature is ready to spread all over Italian cities and parks. In 2018 the event will take place on Sunday 7th October and will be entirely about urban nature. With this event, WWF Italy wants to invite citizens to explore the cities they live in, getting to know and “rebuilding” the biodiversity of Italian big cities.

On the side of the little ones

This year the event wants to point out the effects of an artificialized lifestyle on children, starting also from the proposals of young people, which want to give value to the urban biodiversity and conceive solutions to be proposed to managers, communities, citizens, companies, universities and schools.

The topic of Urban Nature 2018 comes from an alarming observation: our cities are not designed for children. About 80% of urban public space is occupied by car traffic and this isolates children in city parks, the only areas that are protected and suitable for them, even though they are often too little and badly-kept.

It’s exactly very young citizens, especially the more underprivileged ones, who need a constant contact with nature. In fact, there are many studies which demonstrate how the presence of green areas in residential districts is fundamental to ensure the psycho-physical well-being of children and the way they relate to others. Therefore, improving from this point of view means improving the quality of childhood in cities.

Citizens are the main characters

The section of the website of WWF Italy about Urban Nature shows the initiatives and activities which want to make citizens the main characters of this big festival of urban biodiversity: In fact, each of us can do something for the nature in the city every day. Find out how to contribute, starting from the building of a little birdhouse!

Urban Nature in Turin

Sunday 7th October, also Turin will invite all the citizens to the biodiversity festival. WWF YOUng, a community of young people between 18 and 35 years old who have nature and a sustainable future at heart, invite everyone at the Parco del Valentino (Viale Mattioli) for the event of WWF Urban Nature in Turin. The scheduled activities are rich and biodiverse. From 2 to 6 pm will take place the market of aromatic plants and educational laboratories for children. From 3pm, with the kids of WWF YOUng, will start a cleaning marathon of the Parco del Valentino, followed by the “Guerrilla Gardening” with seed bombs.
