What We Do
The aim is to spot a graphic element which is able to transmit in a direct way the identity and message of the "Carnevale della Fisica" (trad. "Carnival of Physics"), born a year ago.
The "Carnevale della Fisica" is an initiative devised by the editorial staff of scientific blogs. Inspired by the model of the Carnivals of Mathematics, it was created to promote the understanding of physics and addresses the larger public.
The 30th of each month hundreds of bloggers and scientific authors from over 10 countries of the world meet in the web reporting articles and posts which have physic as a thread. The blog in charge of hosting the event collects the pieces with a brief presentation.
The subjects can concern all the disciplines linked to physics (theoretical physics, meteorology, nanotechnologies, biophysics, astrophysics, etc.), but also literature and art (history poetry, theatre, music), reviews from other blogs, books, films which have physic as a thread.
The “Carnival of Physics” was officially born the 30th of the month of November 2009, and this date is not fortuitous. Four-hundred years earlier from such date, in fact, Galileo Galilei raised his spyglass to the sky, observing for the first time the brightest celestial body in the firmament: the Moon. This year, the “Carnival of Physics” celebrates its first year of existence!
It celebrates this scientific communicational event on network: http://carnevaledellafisica.ning.com
