October 22nd – November 1st, 2011

Science Festival - IXth edition

Genoa, Palazzo della Borsa
150 years of Italian genius – Innovations that change the world

Home, work, travel, health and frontiers – both concrete and abstract – trace the borders for a thematic journey made up of objects, photographs, scenery and suggestive atmosphere through which the story of the “Italian genius” is told. From Marconi to Viterbi, from Barsanti and Matteucci to Giacosa, from Grassi to Rizzolatti… the best of Italian scientific research, which has endowed our society with results, organizational and methodological challenges, new ways of thinking and ultimately a better quality of life, is narrated by giving an account of people's needs, reflected in society and in business, thus recognizing their role as protagonist and as the motor of progress and wellbeing.

This exhibition has been conceived and organized by the Italian Cultural Institute of New York and the Rosselli Foundation of Rome in collaboration with the Accademia dei Lincei. After its debut in Genoa, it will be transferred to New York until the end of February 2012 and then tour a few other cities before returning to Italy.

The section dedicated to Marconi has been curated by the Guglielmo Marconi Foundation.





















David Sarnoffsarnoff

Marconi was the creator of the present day civilization of the radio. All of those who, with spirit of initiative and perseverance, have brought us to the present stage of development have built on the foundations laid by Marconi. Everyone considered him the tutelary genius of their work.
