After natural disasters we always wonder if what has happened could have been avoided. To what extent can one predict a natural phenomenon? We will speak with Marco Morelli, a geologist specialising in Geomorphological and Geological Survey, the study of Geological Risks and Natural Disasters and the current Scientific Director of the Museum of Planetary Sciences in Prato. A journey inside certain key concepts of contemporary physics, in a fluctuating, noisy and chaotic universe, light years away from the perfect mechanism envisioned by Newton.

 

Marco Morelli Geologist, current Scientific Director of the Museum of Global Sciences of Prato (of which he is also the creator and designer), has participated in research projects both in Italy and abroad, specialising in geological surveys and geomorphology, and the study of geological risks and natural disasters. From 2001 he participated in numerous scientific expeditions which aimed to study impact craters, and gained considerable experience in the field of planetary and impact geology.
A passionate scientific populariser and firm believer in evolution, he worked  for some years between science and humanities. These themes are thoroughly analysed with Margherita Hack in the book "We Are Made of Stars. A Dialogue on Minimum Systems" published by Einaudi in 2013.


Meeting at the End of the World

A series of conferences and debates which expand upon the various themes explored in the inaugural exhibition, The End of the World, from scientific, philosophical and literary perspectives: from very recent theories of physics to prehistory, from science fiction to ecology and sustainability.
