The most recent works of artist Aldo Famà, recently deceased, exhibited at SISSA
Triestinian artist Aldo Famà passed away at the end of November 2021. A few months earlier, he donated to SISSA two of his latest studies for sculptures created with avant-garde techniques: made in polyactic acid, the creation process started from a digital model to be then translated into the third dimension.
The works are exhibited in the showcase on the ground floor of the School.
The medal in honor of Franco Lutman turns 10
Each year SISSA receives a donation in memory of Franco Lutman. He and his his wife have always believed in education as a pillar for society, aiming especially at young people.
Thank to the donation, a prize for the best PhD thesis in Mathematics and a prize for the best Master's thesis in Communication of Science have been awarded to 20 young reserchers.
The support continues from year to year and a special medal was coined for its 10th year.
Three gold donators for the The Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Natural and Humanistic Sciences (ILAS) dedicated in particular to the Master in Communication of Science
In the last two years the Master in Communication of Science has been able to count on the support of three special donors.
In 2020 Paolo Giordano, well-known italian writer, made a donation for two annual scholarships, both for the creation of an original and unpublished journalistic data-driven investigation based on the COVID-19 pandemic in Italy. The funds come from the income of the book "Nel contagio" (Einaudi, 2020; in English: "How contagion works", published by Bloomsbury Publishing).
Another scholarship is financed every year by the Fondazione Pezcoller awarded to the highest-ranked candidate for admission to the SISSA’s Master’s course in Science Communication.
In addition, 4 prizes for the best Master's thesis in Communication of Science on topics of Science Policy were established thanks to a donation by professor Maria Chiara Tallacchini. Professor Tallacchini also supported the teaching activities of "Scienza, diritto e democrazia" of the Master in Science Communication
