Physics&Arts against CO2 - The Linear Mirror and the Closed Cycle of Biomasses

From Wednesday 29 July 2020 to Friday 11 September 2020
Schedule 09:00-13:45

Sale espositive (II piano) della Biblioteca statale Stelio Crise - Largo Papa Giovanni XXIII, 6, Trieste


Physics&Art against CO2 is project of public engagement in science and technology promoted by the University of Udine and other partners, which includes an exhibition, conference and workshops to promote interest, knowledge and reflection on renewable energies.
The exhibition hosted by the Biblioteca Statale focuses on solar thermal energy and the use of waste biomass, and presents a virtuous closed cycle that can contribute to the replacement of fossil fuel.

A solar concentrator (spectacularly exposed in the Library garden) and a toaster who uses the hot air supplied by the Mirror to toast poor biomass are shown.
The exhibition will be open from the 29th of July until the 11th of September. Scientific conferences will be offered together with artistic reflections on the theme of light and power of the Sun, its interaction with matter and sustainability. Several artists will present their works and photography workshops on the theme will be offered. Philologists and classicists are going to discuss how science and art were integrated parts of culture at the roots of European culture.

Open on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:00 am to 1:45 pm. Monday and Tuesday from 9:00 am to 5:15 pm.
