After Ascona, Lugano and Bellinzona, the exhibition Diamo i Numeri! (Numbed by Numbers!) has landed in Porto Antico Genoa for the Festival of Science, and it will be open until January 6.

The aim of the interactive exhibition is to bring young students closer to numbers. It is a real training ground in mathematics, and after Genoa, it will move to Pavia from January 10 to February 15 at Collegio Ghislieri. In this context, the curator of the exhibit and USI Professor Antonietta Mira will perform a Math Magic show together with comedian and magician Raul Cremona. The performance will take place on January 16 at 9 pm.
In addition to Collegio Ghislieri, the exhibition in Pavia will also make stops at Collegio Cairoli and Santa Maria Gualtieri.     

The exhibition has been organised in collaboration with USI L'Ideatorio and the Società Matematica della Svizzera Italiana with funding from the Swiss National Fund for Scientific Research. The Italian tour, ending in September in Treviso during the Statistics Festival, is supported by the Swiss Embassy in Italy and the City of Lugano, together with other Italian bodies including ISTAT, Società Italiana di Statistica and Tenova.
