The Ministry of Education, Universities and Research of the Republic of Italy together with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation recently proclaimed April 16 as the Day of Italian Science in the World, when the scientific research and technological achievements of Italy will be presented in more than 100 cities in the world.
Regarding this occasion, the Italian Embassy in Belgrade has set up an exhibition on the recent history of science, Fermi’s Legacy, that will officially be opened on April 16, 2018 at 6 p.m. in the National Library of Serbia. The exhibition is dedicated to the great contribution of Italian science – and especially Fermi’s group from Panisperna Street – to the field of atomic physics and the physics of elementary particles. The exhibit will be open for visitors from April 17 to 30, 2018.
On the same day at noon at the EU Info Center Professor Pable Cirrone (Laboratori Nazionali del Sud – Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare) will hold a popular lecture entitled Why particle Physics matters in order to demonstrate the connection between the achievements of Fermi’s group and the numerous ways of their daily practical application.
