All this is Science in the city Festival, organized as part of ESOF2020 Trieste and intended for the general public.
Young and senior citizens will have the opportunity to meet and the discuss the future of our society with scientists, artists and poets; or imagine it, thanks to movies and theatre shows; or even experiencing it through spectacular exhibitions. In this context the title of the festival, “Collisions”, alludes to the fruitful, creative collisions between points of views, competences, ideas. Positive (and safe!) contaminations in this era of negative infections.
All events, of course, will take place in full compliance with the anti COVID-19 safety standards.
