( Milan, May 6, 2022 – The Pint of Science is finally back in attendance. The 7th Italian edition of the world’s largest science publishing event, created to bring science to bars for free: genetics, particle physics, circular economy and sustainability, blockchain, ergonomics, language, are just some of the many current scientific issues addressed in this edition More than ever, you want to convey a message of confidence in science.

May 9-10-11, 7.15 pm, five communal bars in the Milan area: Santeria Palladini and the Apocalypse Milano Bike Café in Citta Studi, Ostello Bello in the Central District, Sant’Ambrogio and finally 10 Gradenord in Navigli.

During each of the three evenings, each pub will host researchers, with approximately 40 minutes of interactive presentations, followed by questions from the audience, who will talk about their work in an interactive and informal atmosphere.

Pint of Science talks are divided into six different thematic areas: Atoms to Galaxies (Chemistry, Physics and Astronomy), The Beautiful Mind (Neuroscience, Psychology and Psychiatry), Our Body (Human Biology), Planet Earth (Earth Sciences), Evolution and Science Animal), Social Sciences (Law, History and Political Science) and Tech Me Out (Technology).

During the three evenings, thirteen speakers will climb the stages of Milan taking the flag up to 360 degrees. Dario Minas of INFN will tackle the great topics of physics, who will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the discovery of the Higgs Boson at Ostello Bello Grande; Tullia Sbarrato of INAF at 10gradinord will tell the story of the first black holes, and quantum physics will be studied in depth in the Upcycle by Carlo Casari of Milan Polytechnic. Medical research will be the hero thanks to the participation of experts from Vita Salut San Raffaele Hospital and University: Valeria Sordi in Santeria Paladini will talk about the ongoing studies of the use of stem cells in the treatment of diabetes and Renato Ostoni at Ostello Belo Grande will evaluate the opportunities offered by genetic engineering and cellular reprogramming. Ostello Bello Medici will host unusual and modern topics: Leonardo de Rossi from Bocconi University will talk about Blockchain, Francesca Panzeri and Eleonora Beccaluva from the University of Milano-Bicocca will talk about irony and a neuroscientist respectively. Sustainability and the environment are at the center of many conversations: at the Upcycle, Erminia D’Itria of Politecnico di Milano will dispel false myths about sustainable fashion, at 10gradinord Alessandro Garlandini de IlVespaio will speak on the role of design in the circular economy, at Ostello Bello Grande Federica Masci State University she will speak On ergonomics, at Santeria Paladini, Giuseppe Paterno of Politecnico di Milano and the Italian Institute of Technology will demonstrate a new technology to combat food waste and Alessandro Mingozzi of State University will demonstrate the potential of electrochemistry for ecological transformation.

Pint of Science is a completely free event made possible only thanks to the contribution of many volunteers (more than 20 in Milan alone), the beating heart of the association, who make all this possible with their love and passion.

The contribution of the sponsors is also essential.

Also this year, Vita-Salute San Raffaele University and IRCCS San Raffaele Hospital are supporting the Milan event.

Among the national sponsors is the INFN (National Institute for Nuclear Physics), which accompanies the Pint of Science Italy from its first edition with sponsorship throughout the territory. Also INAF (National Institute for Astrophysics), sponsor of the Atom to Galaxies topic and SIERR (Italian Society for Embryology, Reproduction and Research), sponsor of the topic Our Bodies, are among the national supporters. Last but not least, the bars that have hosted the event for years and with whom they have now forged a strong friendship.

Pint Flag – History and Numbers

In 2012 Michael Motzkin and Pravin Paul were researchers at Imperial College London. They started an event called “Researchers Meet” where some patients with Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, motor neuron disease and multiple sclerosis could go to their labs to see what kind of research they were doing. The event was very stimulating for both visitors and researchers. They thought that if people wanted to go to labs and meet researchers, why not take them outside to meet people? Thus the pint of science was born. In May 2013 the first edition of Pint of Science (UK only) was held which brought to the general public some of the most famous researchers to tell their innovative work to science and beer lovers.

In Italy, the event arrived in 2015 and was the first of its kind in which six cities participated – Genoa, Trento, Siena, Rome, Pavia, Milan; This year the Pint of Science is back in attendance with the participation of 170 researchers in 23 Italian cities (Avellino, Bari, Bologna, Cagliari, Catania, Ferrara, Frascati, Genoa, L’Aquila, Lucca, Milan, Naples, Padua, Palermo, Pavia, Pisa, Reggio Calabria, , Rome, Rovereto, Salerno, Siena, Turin, Trento) and simultaneously in 25 countries (Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Holland, Paraguay, Portugal, UK, Russia, Singapore and Spain, the United States, Sweden, Switzerland, South Africa and Thailand) for a total of 200 participating cities, over 800 speakers and covering all continents, making it the largest global event of its kind.
