"Not Only Physics" is a series of informal meetings – not only for physicists – with former SISSA PhD students in Physics who are now employed outside academia, in major national and international companies. The two appointments are planned on 17 November and 1 December in SISSA.
The story of the mathematician Évariste Galois heralds the opening of the 2017 Trieste Science+Fiction Festival. The romantic legend of an absolute prodigy of mathematics, who was killed at a very young age during a fatal duel on 29 May 1832, comes to life in a documentary film by Giuseppe Mussardo and Diego Cenetiempo, produced by SISSA and ICTP.
The last event of SISSA SUMMER FESTIVAL 2017 will take place at SISSA's amphitheatre on Friday 14 July at 7 p.m. The Wind Orchestra of the Conservatorio G. Tartini, Trieste, will present a programme with music by Bob Mintzer, Jule Styne, Kenny Wheeler and many other authors. The concert will be held in the Main Hall in heavy weather. All interested are welcome! (Image: Pixabay)
SISSA SUMMER FESTIVAL is back with a show that joins science and cabaret. "Topi da laboratorio" is written and performed by a group of young researchers with different scientific backgrounds and experiences in science communication. At the centre of the story: a group of lab mice travelling to the space.
The performance will take place at 7 pm on Friday, 7 July, at SISSA's amphitheater (P. Budinich Main Hall in case of bad weather). The event (held in Italian) is free and open to the public.
Folk and tzigane music from all over the world will be the protagonist of the 4th SISSA SUMMER FESTIVAL event scheduled for Sunday 2 July. The orchestra consists of 40 boys and girls and will be led by the conductor Martin Schaefer. The concert is organized by the “Associazione musicale piano S. Suzuki”, Trieste, and will take place at SISSA’s amphitheater starting from 7 p.m. (Image: iStock)
Physics will be opening on Friday 16 June Bloomsday 2017, the event that, since several years, Trieste dedicates to James Joyce and his unforgettable character Leopold Bloom, the protagonist of his famous novel Ulysses. Giuseppe Mussardo, Professor of Theoretical Physics and Director of the Interdisciplinary Laboratory at SISSA, will start the programme with a conference entitled “The colour and the taste of quarks”.
Photography beyond photography, in other words when taking a picture means creating some kind of artwork, engaging techniques, imagination, creativity, forcing the photographer to interact with his/her own photos. The last appointment of the series “If I knew how to take a good pic, I would always do it” will focus on the key approaches to “artistic” photography, such as Light Painting, HDRI (High Dynamic Range Imaging), Infrared Photography and more.
The seminar will take place on Thursday 15 June in room 128-129, I floor, starting from 6.00 pm.
SISSA amphitheater is ready to host a new SISSA SUMMER FESTIVAL event. A great concert by Conservatorio Tartini's Orchestra will take place on 16 June starting from 7 p.m.. In the program, music by Jacques Ibert, Paul Hindemith, Georg Friedrich Handel and many other authors. You are all invited! (Getty images)

New appointment of the series “If I knew how to take a good pic, I would always do it” by Giuseppe Mussardo and Andrea Tomicich. The event will focus on street photography, where images are capable of capturing a mood or a specific moment that words could not easily describe.
