The Angels of Davide Cerati

The words of Davide Cerati about his research project on Angels

 

“I do not know precisely how the project was born: at some point, I had the idea to take pictures of angels. The beginning of the project can be approximately dated in 2003, in the occasion of Christmas. I realized a holiday card with a portrait of an angel to be sent to all my friends and relatives. That was my first angel. Then I continued, every now and then, to take pictures of angels with no restraints, in complete freedom: no time restrictions, no restrictions on subjects or others: the project is still ongoing, always on development. I take the chance to take shots when I have the opportunity, when I have the inspiration, the willingness to do something for the implementation of the project. Eventually, taking advantage of one moment in which I am on stage for a work and I have the time to catch the moment to take a shot of a model that is there for a completely different purpose. I want to keep on with this job in complete freedom, until the moment I will feel the right inspiration, according to what I will have to do in the future with my job, find time by time a compromise between work and research.”

Idan Raichel

I don’t really know how I met the music of Idan Raichel.
It was a chance, casually, looking at the Facebook pages of friends: I immediately fell in love with his music.
Idan Raichel is a global music Icon and, even if he likes to say that his music is a world music, his work is emblematic of Israel. I dare to say that his music is the real heart of Israel.

A journey to Japan

Japan is not only science, development and high technology (as, in fact actually it is). It is a land where tradition meets the future. Japan is an astonishing nation, with outstanding traditions, history, spirituality, rituals and nature. And the People are simply fantastic. Take a journey with us to discover the beauty of such awesome lands and their hidden secrets.

And, remember:

“Japanese society runs like clockwork because everyone (well, almost everyone) follows the rules. That includes you, gaijin aka foreigner”.

Studying has never be so nice and fun: being a researcher at ICTP

Shiny Happy Scientists from all over the world

From the words of the Director General of ICTP

“Trieste represents a unique example of ‘City of Science’, not only in the region but also at national and international level and the recognition given by the ESOF confirms that the context is real and strong. It will be an important opportunity to attract a clear visibility and to strengthen reputation at European level.

Numbers are very clear, more than words.

Further than the Regional Science and Innovations System (which accounts about 59 among centres and institutions committed to scientific research and international cooperation), the city hosts the “Trieste System” formed by more than 30 research institutions located on its territory: universities, institutions and laboratories that carry out the most innovative research in diversified scientific fields with solid international collaborations. The city has an average ratio of 3:1 scientists for citizen; it is a matter of fact: a number that is well above the average number of other cities in Italy or even abroad.

Furthermore, we have an average number of 5000 scientists from every single country of the world visiting ICTP every year. This allows a continuous flows of scientists, therefore a continuous knowledge sharing, a continuous exchange of experiences, not only related to the scientific context but more in general, from a cultural point of view. It represents an exceptional opportunity for the overall growth of the international community. To complete the picture, we also have to mention that over 140,000 scientists from 188 countries, most of them developing countries, have benefitted from ICTP since its foundation. Including an average of per year of 800 participants to regional training courses organized by ICTP but held in other countries.

These numbers are a primacy that only science can boast: science is always ahead in society in its capacity to overcome contrasts and to bring together people from different countries.”

Professor Fernando Quevedo, Director General of ICTP

Take a break with a glass of wine, on the hills of Collio Region

Enjoy the passion and enthusiasm of Cristian Specogna, a young Italian winemaker

“Let’s celebrate Cabernet Franc Day!

This variety does very well in the Veneto and also in our neighboring region of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
The Vignaioli Specogna Winery in Friuli produces a particularly nice Cabernet Franc and Carmenère blend.
Come explore the stellar wine producing areas of the Collio and the Colli Orientali del Friuli with us – perfect as a day trip from Venice.”
