FROM GALILEO TO QUANTUM PHYSICS AT THE PHILOSOPHY FESTIVAL

festivalfilosofia 2022Once again this year, INFN is taking part in festivalfilosofia, scheduled for 16-18 September 2022, in Modena, Carpi and Sassuolo. The festivalfilosofia, now at its 22nd edition, aims to be a space for philosophical and cultural dialogue and debate, with a dense programme of lectures, exhibitions, performances, readings, children's activities and philosophical dinners. The meeting organised by INFN will be hosted at the Piazza Martiri in Carpi and will focus on the radical change that quantum mechanics triggered in early 20th-century physics, revolutionising its foundations and even the notion of measuring reality.
