2nd National Conference on suburbs: "Ten, a hundred, a thousand centres"

Bracco Foundation and the municipality of Palermo are promoting the second conference on suburbs: "Ten, a hundred, a thousand centres"on Friday, June 14th 2019 at the Santa Cecilia Theatre in Palermo.
  • The project

    The exhibition “Life as a Scientist” is part of the “100 women against stereotypes” initiative, created in 2016 from the Pavia Observatory and the Association of female journalists Gi.U.Li.A, in collaboration with the Bracco Foundation and with the support of the European Commission’s Representation in Italy. Indeed, women are seldom consulted by the media as experts and the series of portraits “Life as a Scientist”, by acclaimed photographer Gerald Bruneau, was specifically commissioned to help overcome the bias often associated with the work of women in science and technology and to bring the general public closer to their achievements.

    "This exhibition highlights Italian female expertise in science, technology, engineering and mathematics as a key element for growth and progress and as a driving force of the excellent bilateral relations between Italy and the United States. It opens a window onto the daily lives of exceptional Italian women – biologists, chemists, engineers, astrophysicists, mathematicians, surgeons and computer scientists – who, through their work and accomplishments, are fostering the cultural shift needed to ensure that gender parity is achieved in every segment and sector of society” said Ambassador Armando Varricchio.
