Science Festival 2006
Genoa, october 26 - november 7

Discovery was the theme of the 2006 Science Festival, Exhibitions, laboratories, shows and special events: for 2006, the Science Festival explored the planet of science from every angle. Science and education met in a range of "hands-on" experiments in natural science, physics, chemistry, and astronomy laboratories, and in exhibitions dedicated to volcanoes, which took us on a journey to the centre of the Earth.
Physics and light were at the centre of two large exhibitions, "Science and Consciousness at the Mirror" and "The rays of light". The 2006 Festival, moreover, took part in two big international projects: "Esciential" and "Wonders", which brought exhitions and workshop from all accross the Europe.

What's more, the Science Festival welcomed outstanding names from the world of science as, among the others: Enrico Bellone, Giovanni Bignami, Torsten Wiesel, Fritjof Capra, Sean Carroll, Gregory Chaitin, Terrence Deacon, Umberto Eco, Artur Ekert, Daniel Kahneman, Michio Kaku, Seth Lloyd, Helga Nowotny, Massimo Piattelli Palmarini, Steven Pinker, Lisa Randall, Giacomo Rizzolatti, Christopher Stringer, Anne Treisman, Theodor Haensch, Robert Trivers, Edouard Brézin, Telmo Pievani, Edoardo Boncinelli, Rita Colwell, Francesco De Martini, Jean Pierre Luminet
