Between science and art, Ferrara changed face to face with Professor Zamboni

On Wednesday May 11 at 6 p.m., at the Circolo Unione in Via Lollio, Paolo Zamboni’s book “Hidden in the Cloth” will be presented.

The meeting organized by the Ferrara Campia Association for Social Progress will be moderated by Andrea Maggi, President of the same association.

One of the best Italian scientists, Paolo Zamboni, Professor of Vascular Surgery, Director of the School of Specialization in Vascular Surgery and of the Center for Vascular Diseases of the University of Ferrara.

Zamboni is known worldwide for his exceptional research activity and for having been the principal investigator of the Drain Brain project implemented in orbit in 2015 by astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti.

The project will now be repeated in first place in the Italian Space Agency’s call for “human spaceflight for research and technology demonstrations” on the International Space Station Drain Brain Part 1: AstroSamantha mission.

But Professor Zamboni is also a great art lover. In moments of escape, between books, trips and exhibitions, he realizes that he cannot help remaining a doctor even in front of the most unusual portraits painted by the greatest artists of all eras. In this way he began to notice the clinical signs of the diseases depicted, perhaps unwittingly, in some of his most famous works of art.

From Caravaggio to Leonardo’s Mona Lisa, from Rubens to Rembrandt via Frida Kahlo: The Doctor examined thirty paintings halfway between plastic art, science, history and medical art. A book full of delicious tales and curiosity that is worth reading.

Admission is free and free within the limit of the number of places.
