The appointment with the capital's scientific event is back, preparing to welcome enthusiasts and curious people with conferences, laboratories, exhibits, shows and events for families

From the 16 21 2024 April, in the spaces ofEnnio Morricone Music Park Auditorium of Rome, the appointment with the Rome Science Festival.
La event, now in its 19th edition, also this year sees the participation ofNational Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) as a scientific partner of the event.
Scientists from all over the world, journalists, intellectuals and visitors will discuss the theme chosen for this edition, “Errors and Wonders”, to rediscover the wonder that accompanies every discovery and that fuels progress with curiosity and the desire to question knowledge, even consolidated knowledge.
Furthermore, this year the Festival will host the World Forum for Women in Science (WFWS), an international scientific conference dedicated to the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals entitled “Envisioning Tomorrow-Science for the SDGs and new partnership for sustainable futures”.
Among the numerous events of the Festival, below are the appointments with the INGV Geosciences:

The craziest of undertakings: the adventure of gravitational waves from Einstein to ET
Conference organized by GSSI, INAF, INFN, INGV
Saturday 20 April | 18pm | AuditoriumArte
From the doubts of Einstein, who soon found the correct formulation but remained skeptical about their existence for the rest of his life, to the announcement of their discovery by the LIGO experiments in the United States and VIrgo in Italy, near Pisa, gravitational waves have gave rise to passionate research that made use of gravitational detectors. The most powerful of these will be the Einstein Telescope (ET), the third generation detector that Italy is a candidate to host in Sardinia. From doubts, one certainty: ET will be a project with world-class scientific and technological impact.

Underground no one can hear you scream
Conference organized by ISPRA, INGV, CNR
Sunday 21 April | 11:00 am | Guest Hall
Hydrogeological instability, earthquakes, volcanoes. We live on a restless planet, constantly grappling with threats that in some cases are caused by geological forces over which we have no control; in others, they are consequences of our reckless and excessive intervention on the territory. What can we do to anticipate these threats, to mitigate them and to try to live with them?

Urban developments and natural risks
Exhibition curated by INGV
From Tuesday 16th to Friday 19th April | 15pm - 00pm | Archaeological Foyer
Saturday 20 April | 10:00 am - 21:00 pm | Archaeological Foyer
Sunday 21 April | 11:00 am - 21:00 pm | Archaeological Foyer
The panels make up a journey along Italy between some of our largest cities (Genoa, Rome, Naples, Palermo), to show how human beings have strongly modified the morphology of the territories, leaving their indelible mark and creating the conditions for serious disruptions. The landscapes have changed over the years, sometimes distorted, and substantial changes have increased the risks for the population (seismic, volcanic, hydrogeological). The event is an educational journey on the theme of the relationship between man and the environment, on the culture of prevention and protection of the territory.
