In celebration of the 800th anniversary of the University, the Center for the History of the University of Padua presents the book by Maria Grazia Bevilacqua«Eppur si muove»: ricerca scientifica e libertà di pensiero. Il rettorato di Giovanni Marchesini (1996-2002).

The book retraces some of the most significant moments of the two-term rectorate of Giovanni Marchesini. As the head of the University of Padua from 1996 to 2002, Rector Marchesini led the crucial years characterised by the long season of reforms that shaped the Italian University.  The book examines his wide-ranging commitment to enhancing scientific research and the need to bring the university into the European area of knowledge and research founded on a knowledge-based society.
