Forces of Nature: Me and ...


Folowing women who have left their mark on Science 


Forze della Natura 

It is a virtual exhibition but also a talk-show to get to know some of the greatest scientists who have marked the history of Science with their work and their discoveries. Alongside these figures of exceptional women, 11 scientists from Catania confront and talk about each other with an exceptional interviewer, Sara Zambotti, host of the Caterpillar radio broadcast.

Women who have won the Nobel, women who despite making great discoveries have not won it, women who were the first to win prejudices of gender and race, women who have marked the history of science.Scientists of yesterday but also scientists of today: to tell us about these great figures will be eleven researchers from Catania who took inspiration from these great figures and who today conduct their research ranging from Particle Physics to Information Technology, from Astrophysics to Applied Mathematics, mixingexperiments and theory together, but above all always bringing within that healthy curiosity that distinguishes those who do research.
