Enrico Fermi. Una duplice genialità tra teorie ed esperimenti Enrico Fermi. A dual genius between theories and experiments
Ex Chiesa di San Mattia 6 February - 10 April 2016 Extended to May 22, 2016
Enrico Fermi's greatness, his extraordinary figure as a master and a giant of physics in the 20th century, is presented in this Exhibition that sets out to illustrate the formidable scientific results achieved by this scientist. At the heart of the Exhibition, the original previously unknown logbook by Fermi from 1934 which bears witness to one of his greatest discoveries will be on display.
The Exhibition is organised in "stages". In addition to the first stage that is an invitation to visit the exhibition, there are more five other stages concerning the scientific aspect of Fermi's life, his private life and the environment in which he worked. The scientific achievements, integrated into the various stages of the scientist's life, are presented in a new light suitable for the general public, including the very young, combining objects and traditional panels with video and audio multimedia products in an original way.
After the success of its debut at the “Festival delle Scienza di Genova" of 2015 (about 15.000 visits), the exhibition arrives in the Emilian city, thanks to the collaboration with the National Institute of Nuclear Physics - INFN - Unit of Bologna, an institution always at the forefront in the studies of Physics. Its final destination will be the historic building of the Physics Institute of Via Panisperna in Rome.
