As part of the 800th anniversary of the University of Padua, the Rivoluzioni review allows those from Italian culture to give a voice to a famous alumnus by sharing their stories and life’s work. The review is organized by the Gabinetto di Lettura Association, based on a project by Paola Cattaneo.
The second meeting welcomes geologist and science communicator Mario Tozzi, as he pays tribute to Nicolaus Copernicus (1473 – 1545), the University of Padua student whose name is linked to the Copernican Revolution and the start of modern science.
Mario Tozzi’s talk is held via Zoom.
The meeting includes a musical performance by Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto. This Rivoluzione is illustrated through music and an original dialogue alongside the portrait of the famous University of Padua alumni.
The Rivoluzione review aims to create a unique and original narrative of historical biographies with new and interesting points of view. The review is a tribute to the 800 years of revolutionary knowledge, culture and traditions of which the University of Padua has sustained over the centuries. Each appointment is accompanied by a musical performance, made possible thanks to the organizational and extraordinary collaboration of the Orchestra Foundation of Padua and Veneto (OPV).
Admission is free upon registration.
