The Speakers

Anna Ascani
Jobs out of this world: an astrophysicist on TV
Anna Ascani undertook humanistic studies, history and then politics, that led her in 2017 to see her first law passed in parliament and, in 2018, to be selected by the Obama Foundation among the 11 young emerging leaders and meet the former President of the United States, Obama. As Deputy Minister of Education, she now intends to bring about real change in society starting from school.
Giuditta Celli
Culture and Technology: an indispensable combination for the new normal
Giuditta Celli returned in 2019 from a mission to Antarctica as a glaciologist and atmospheric chemistry. She remained at the base at 3000 meters of altitude for a year, living for a literally isolated period together with 13 other people and devoting herself to collecting data or samples. A life-long history of chemistry, she continues her commitment to the study of climate change.
Edwige Pezzulli
From Italy to the South Pole: a journey of resilience and self-discovery on the ice
Edwige Pezzulli achieved many milestones by participating in Nasa's first women-only study and winning the National Science Award Thursday with the project "The First Black Holes in the Universe." Despite numerous offers abroad to deal with research, Edwige chose to stay in Italy and invest 100% in the dissemination mission, convinced of the great power of scientific thought.

Technology and digital can be our allies, if used properly, to face the challenges of our times

Anna Ascani

The importance of digital sustainability

The search for knowledge is an instinct that has been present for centuries in human beings, and in the hypothesis that knowledge is by its nature infinite, it must be accepted that there is always an "beyond" yet to be discovered.

Edwige Pezzulli

The infinite nature of things

To address the concern of total isolation, of narrow cohabitation, of the impossibility of returning home, you have to be resilient. Relying only on oneself is not enough, one must be strong with others.

Giuditta Celli

Resiliency as a shared resource
