SISSA is once again a reference point in the Italian scenery of science communication and journalism: an article entitled "Il racconto pubblico della scienza" (the public dissemination of science) by Nico Pitrelli, co-director of SISSA Master's in Science Communication and of SISSA Master's in Digital Science Journalism, has been published in the journal "Il Mulino".
