As of this year, IBSA Foundation for scientific research is the Scientific Partner of the Museo Nazionale Scienza e Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci in Milan. The collaboration, which began last year on the occasion of the five hundredth anniversary of the death of Leonardo Da Vinci, has evolved into a Scientific Partnership. The partnership common mission is the promotion of scientific dissemination and the dialogue between science and the humanities.
#storieaportechiuse is the project that IBSA Foundation supported alongside the Museum. A daily appointment that kept the Museum close to its public during the Covid-19 time during which the Museum was closed. Every day, the most beautiful stories of the Museum – 150 in total – were told on its social media channels. These stories have virtually accompanied the public inside the Museum during 4 months through images, videos, and unpublished documents on topics such as science, technology, latest news, education and many more.
The events offered by the Museum have been announced every week on the IBSA Foundation’s Facebook page and had an educational approach. The aim was to offer students and teachers the possibility to find a selection of stimulating and engaging digital contents for the in-depth study of already-known subjects or to discover new worlds through the endless opportunities offered by the internet, especially at a time when physical distance is overcome by digital technology.
