The Show

What happens when science communication meets poetry, theatre, music, video, or figurative arts? What common ground can be found when you turn scientific storytelling into an artistic endeavour? Science and Art both explore and create new ideas inspired by the world that surrounds us, and this programme provides the conditions for scientists and artists to work together. JPT’s Augmented Lectures connect scientists with artists (often times chosen from outside of JPT) so they can interact and create novel ways to communicate science, to engage science in the arts and to develop new pedagogical tools. JPT provides coaching and direction, but the results depend on the performers’ inclinations. Here below are just some examples of what we have been doing...

The last walk on the Moon

The incredible adventure of the Apollo missions and of the astronaut Eugene (“Gene”) Cernan, the last man who walked on the moon.

By and with Stefano Oss - Department of Physics of the University of Trento and with the musician Enrico Merlin.

Dante the Cosmonaut

Dante had (perhaps) understood everything... the Big Bang and God are the same thing?

by Anna Pegoretti (Department of Humanities, University Roma Tre) and Leonardo Ricci (Department of Physics, University of Trento) with Anna Pegoretti and the actress Laura Anzani.

Things from the Anti-World

The story of how we came across antimatter and how, however, we have not (almost) ever seen it.

The Augmented Lectures received the CULTIVATING CURIOSITY Bronze Award at the 2016 Reimagine Education Conference, organized by The Wharton School – SEI Center at the University of Philadelphia and QS Quacquarelli Symonds, compiler of the QS World University Rankings.
