Within the context of its partnership with MUSE – The Science Museum of Trento, set up in 2019, IBSA Foundation is promoting the presentation of the book “Informati e vaccinati” (“Be informed and get vaccinated“) by Pier Luigi Lopalco.

The event will be held on Wednesday, September 18, at 8.15 p.m., and forms part of the series of meetings entitled “MUSE a tutto libro“: starting with the presentation of recently-published books, the authors will discuss scientific, social and contemporary subjects of public interest.

Onstage, alongside Pier Luigi Lopalco and Patrizia Famà, moderator of the event, will be Andrea Grignolio, IBSA Foundation’s guest and author of Storie sui Vaccini (“Stories about Vaccines“) which belongs the book series I ragazzi di Pasteur.

The subject of the event will therefore be vaccines: the history of the struggle between humans and microbes began with the birth of ancient civilizations, but the 20th century marked a substantial turning point thanks to global vaccination programs. Improvements in hygiene and lifestyles alone were not enough to overcome scourges like smallpox or polio. Lopalco and Grignolio will offer a better understanding of what vaccines are, how they work and how safe they are, so that we don’t let microbes win!

Free admission subject to reservation through Eventbrite.
