Trieste NEXT 2016

Trieste Next 2016: Record-breaking Edition with a turnout of 50,000 visitors over 3 days.
Trieste Next is a “laboratory” of applied research and new technologies that every year brings together the public and the world of research and development. The occasion underlines the crucial role of research-industry relations as a key to progress. This year, the fifth edition of Trieste Next, with the title “Human post-human: towards homo-technologicus?”, was held with great success on September 23-25.

What is a synchrotron? People visiting the Elettra stand found it out and much more, directly from the researchers working at the synchrotron light source Elettra. The event also offered the opportunity to engage in experiments, explore an invisible world using a state-of-the-art microscope and play with models of molecules. Children got a chance to listen to the original story of Mr. Electron, a very peculiar character racing on a very special track.
Hosted at the AREA Lab space, the famous Crazy Scientists and their special effects mesmerised the crowd with their show At the Speed of Light.
At the AREA Lab in the AREA Science Park Gazebo, a curious audience followed a number of presentations including FERMI: Ultrafast Science by Michele Manfredda, Mammography under Synchrotron Light by Giuliana Tromba, Let’s Cure Ourselves with Nanomedicine by Pietro Parisse, andThe Post-Human Brain: Chronicles of Nano-Invasions by Denis Scaini.

In the round table organized by Elettra and excellently moderated by Daniela Picoi, author and director at RAI FVG, five speakers took the floor: Federico Bernardini, archaeologist, ICTP and Fermi Centre in Rome; Alberto Giordano, master violinmaker and historian of Italian violin making; and the Elettra researchers Alessandra Gianoncelli, Mirta Sibilia and Franco Zanini, experts in archaeometry.
Franco Zanini introduced the role of ECHO, the Elettra Cultural Heritage Office, which coordinates all beamline activities at Elettra dedicated to cultural heritage. The roundtable continued with an incredible analysis of a Guadagnini violin using synchrotron light; the latest technologies for the study and preservation of cultural heritage; the secrets of Trieste’s iconic symbol, the halberd, the world’s most ancient flute; the fight against the corrosion of ancient metal objects and the discovery of Roman military fortifications in the surroundings of Trieste. The enthusiastic audience participated in the occasion with countless questions.
