Physics is culture

Interchanges with other actors, and cultural orientations

We tell the story of physics and engage with the general public by means of innovative idioms. Stories and projects are generated from exchanges with artists and cross-pollinations between arts, literature, and narration. A broader audience for our research story is developed and sustained by collaborations with museums, theatres, libraries, and schools.

INFN National Institute for Nuclear Physics

INFN is an Italian research organisation dedicated to the study of the fundamental constituents of matter and the laws that govern them. It carries out research in theoretical and experimental particle physics, nuclear physics, and astroparticle physics at its four main laboratories, in 26 research sections, in associated groups throughout Italy, and in three national research centres, as well as as part of large international collaborations. These include, to name the protagonists of two recent discoveries awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics, the experiments at CERN in Geneva, where the Higgs Boson was discovered in 2012, and the Virgo collaboration for research on gravitational waves, first observed in 2015.
