Small opening, big ambition

“Small opening, big ambition” is the title of the second seminar 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 landscape and nature photography in an attempt to answer the following question. Even more than portrait photography, landscape photography is often linked aesthetically with painting: but is that right? The speakers will investigate this topic and present classical and unusual photographs by Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Michael Kenna and Jessica Backhaus.

Towards better therapies to fight breast cancer

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women in Italy and in the world. Today, however, it seems possible to design more selective and effective drugs through numerical simulations. This is what has been revealed by research carried out by the “Istituto Officina dei Materiali” (IOM) of the Italian National Research Council (CNR) in Trieste and the International School for Advances Studies (SISSA), in collaboration with the Bellinzona Institute for Research in Biomedicine and the University of Italian Switzerland.
