  • Wednesday, 25th November, at 5:30 pm, "Cities vs Distancing: New Sharing Strategies in the Digital Era”.

Introduction by Prof. Maria Amata Garito, Rector of the International Telematic University UNINETTUNO

Moderated by Prof. Gerardo Maria Cennamo, UNINETTUNO Engineering Faculty 


- Barbara Bonciani, City of Livorno and CNR Ircres

- Massimo Clemente, CNR - Iriss

- Bruno Discepolo, Urban Planning, Campania Region

- Miguel Mayorga, Mayorga+Fontana Arquitectos

- Fabrizio Pistolesi, C.N.A.P.P.C

Cities have always represented a complex organism that supports and progresses through a system of rules necessary to address its multiple dynamics. 

Sharing is one of these rules. 

Trust in sharing, the purpose of sharing, the use of sharing: the communion of spaces and functions has always been preliminary to the participation of ideas, knowledge and feelings. Interpersonal proximity has never been an obstacle to metropolitan development, indeed it can be understood as a purpose that has influenced, over time, the planning of infrastructures and the vision of architecture in general.

We hope that the current period of health emergency - with the inevitable load of temporary limitations - will end as soon as possible; but what rules will the planning and management of the city be confronted with in the next "normality"? 

On this issue it is necessary to confront ourselves, in search of the right approach towards an overall regeneration action that probably takes into account different needs and purposes and has, certainly, new powerful tools for sharing, knowledge and freedom.

  • Friday, the 27th November, at 4:00 pm, The Blue Planet: travel notes of satellites observing the Earth”

Introduction  by Prof. Maria Amata Garito, Rector of the International Telematic University UNINETTUNO

Moderated by Livio Conti, Professor of Physics, UNINETTUNO Engineering Faculty and coordinator of the “UNINETTUNO High-energy” research team


- Piergiorgio Picozza, Professors of Physics, UNINETTUNO Engineering Faculty and Principal Investigator of the CSES-Limadou Cooperation.

- Marco Casolino, First Researcher at INFN – Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics and Mini-EUSO  Principal Investigator

For millennia, bards, traveling fairs, storytellers and visionaries portrayed myths of journeys from the Earth to the Moon, from Ithaca to Olympus, from Paris to the gold of the West. Today the nuggets are less glittering and perhaps they are found in the veins of the orbits and skies of astronomy. Some of these nuggets are called big-data, photos of the navel of every city, maps to never get lost, satellite modems to connect even from an atoll to the rest of the human anthill. The plot of this story is set in the sky of a tribe of satellites ready to scrutinize needs, to feel the magnetic whims of the sun, to peer at the dewy clouds of rain, to listen to the wrinkles and tremors of the Earth. Among the many stories in orbit, in this interview we will tell those of a satellite called CSES and a Mini-EUSO telescope - UNINETTUNO participates in both - apparently very different, but born from the same school of research: different and complementary eyes in the look that aim to study our Blue Planet.

CSES (China Seism-Electromagnetic Satellite) is a Chinese-Italian satellite devoted to monitoring electromagnetic fields and perturbations of plasma and particles produced by natural sources such as lightning and solar storms and artificial radio emitters. Moreover with CSES it will be possible to study the existence of possible correlations between electromagnetic perturbations recorded in space and the occurrence of seismic events. The data collected by the mission will also allow a better understanding of Sun-Earth interactions, Coronal Mass Emissions (CME), flares and solar modulation of cosmic rays.

Mini-EUSO is, instead, a new generation international telescope installed by Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano on the International Space Station. It was designed to study ultraviolet emissions in the night of the Earth and will allow the observation of transient light phenomena important to better understand the dynamics of the atmosphere, climate change, bioluminescence of the oceans, etc.. With Mini-EUSO it will also be possible to study the meteors that continuously arrive on Earth and search for new aggregates of so-called "exotic" matter. But Mini-EUSO will also allow to study the tracking of space debris in orbit around the Earth: fragments dangerous for the flight of satellites and astronauts. This telescope will in fact allow to develop a new methodology for the reduction of the number of such debris based on the deviation of their trajectory with a high-power laser to be installed in space. 

The ticket fee for this journey branded by UNINETTUNO?  Eager to know about it!
