Gender-based violence: when words count

According to Istat, almost 7 million women in Italy are mistreated by their partners in the course of their life. Every year, more than 100 women are killed by someone they once trusted. More and more often journalist are asked to tell these tragic stories. In this sensitive context, the word choice is of great importance as it may help to bring about cultural change that would ensure that the most vulnerable members of society, like women, old people and children, are protected and respected.

Scienza e Virgola

From synthetic life to the chemistry of beauty, from the myth of the Ancient Astronauts to the latest genome editing techniques, from the wonders of botany to the science of sex. Scientific research will be on stage during the second edition of Scienza e Virgola, a series of book presentations organized by the Masters’ course in Science Communication "Franco Prattico" of the Interdisciplinary Laboratory of SISSA, the International School for Advanced Studies in Trieste.

Through a series of ten meetings with the authors, free and open to the public, we will discover some of the most interesting science books published in Italy over the last months. All events will be held in Italian.

It is easier for a DNA knot…

Anyone who has been on a sailing boat knows that tying a knot is the best way to secure a rope to a hook and prevent its slippage. The same applies to sewing threads where knots are introduced to prevent them slipping through two pieces of fabric. How, then, can long DNA filaments, which have convoluted and highly knotted structure, manage to pass through the tiny pores of various biological systems?

Looking for signs of the Big Bang

The silence of an immense desolate land in which to search for reverberations coming from the time at which everything began. The Simons Observatory will be built in the Chilean Atacama desert at an altitude of several thousand meters for the purposes of studying primordial gravitational waves which originated in the first instants of the Big Bang. The SISSA research group led by Carlo Baccigalupi and Francesca Perrotta will take part in this prestigious international project which will lead to the realization  of an ultra-modern telescope project.
