Genoa is proudly preparing to host the twenty-first edition of the Science Festival, an internationally renowned event dedicated to the dissemination of scientific culture. From 26 October to 5 November, the city will open the doors of its cultural venues, offering all visitors an extraordinary experience full of conferences, exhibitions, workshops, shows, and much more.

This year’s official image, created by Ligurian artist Elena Di Capita, uses the Japanese technique of gyotaku (from gyo, ‘fish’ and taku, meaning ‘imprinting on stone’), a traditional Japanese method of printing fish, widespread since the mid-1800s.

Sustainability and Artificial Intelligence

The Science Festival will address a wide range of topics, with a focus on sustainability and the future of technologies, exploring the applications of artificial intelligence and robotics, issues that are increasingly present in our lives and that raise fundamental ethical questions.

On the occasion of the ‘2023 Italian Book Capital’ project, the Festival will dedicate a special space to the value of reading as a tool for science popularisation, offering intimate and informal meetings with Italy’s leading science popularisers.

A city at the service of culture

As always, the Festival will involve the city’s main cultural and recreational spaces, promoting a mutual synergy between culture and knowledge. The Doge’s Palace, the Stock Exchange, the Royal Palace, the Galata Maritime Museum, the Aquarium of Genoa and many other civic and national museums will be part of this extraordinary adventure.
