Organized by the Department of Mathematics of the University of Padua, MUMBLE! is a comic mathematics exhibit that offers a comic-strip journey through the history of mathematics.  The exhibit is on display from May 3 to June 4, 2022, at the Beato Pellegrino Complex.

From graphic novels to comic strips, today’s mathematicians are at the centre of the comic industry. This artistic expression is widely used thanks to its ability to convey graphic and narrative contents simultaneously. Contents vary from the most playful and childish (comics for children) to the most abstract and conceptual (the modern graphic novels, with a vast number of topics covered).

The exhibition highlights the recent use of comics in the communication of mathematical content or illustrations of mathematical life, such as the Topolino comic (Italian Mickey Mouse) that features mathematician Alessio Figalli, the graphic novel on Galileo, and the stories of mathematicians in the magazine “Archimede“.

Access is free. Opening hours:
Mon-Fri 9 am – 7 pm
Sat 9 am – 6 pm
Closed un Sundays an bank holidays.

Guided tours are available by appointment.

School-aged children can participate in workshops offered by the International School of Comics of Padua on Friday morning by reservation only.
