At the Genoa Science Festival, the project “On the trail of the glaciers” will be one of the main protagonists. In fact, there will be an exhibition from October 25th to November 4th, in the Sottoporticato of Palazzo Ducale and a conference on climate change, on the 4th November, at 3:00 p.m. at the Auditorium of the Aquarium.
In the exhibition, sponsored by Epson Italia, Ricola and CAI – Italian Alpine Club and sponsored by the Italian National Commission for UNESCO and the Cariplo Foundation, 60 photographic comparisons made by Fabiano Ventura Photographer on the mountain chains of the Karakorum, Caucasus, Alaska and Andes will be on display.
“Considering that this year’s topic at the Genoa Science Festival is “change” – says Ventura – I am convinced that a topic like climate change could not be missing. Also because the Festival is much participated by young people and students, the main recipients of our message”.
The conference, entitled “Mountains without glaciers. A possible future?” is organized by the Cai Scientific Committee and will be coordinated by the journalist Luca Calzolari. It is a dialogue between Fabiano Ventura and Professor Claudio Smiraglia, a glaciologist of inter-national fame, with the aim of examine in depth the topic of climate change and raising the awareness of the public opinion on the importance of a concrete commitment to limit the increase in global temperature.
The meeting, open to the audience, will also be attended by the main sponsors of the exhibition: Luca Cassani, CSR manager of Epson Italia and Gianni Carravieri, president of the Liguria Italian Alpine Club (CAI).
At the end of the conference, Fabiano Ventura and Claudio Smiraglia will accompany the public on a guided tour of the exhibition.
