The marvel of the human body explained through games and drawings. The magnificent Anatomical Theater, one of the jewels of Bologna, especially open for students and families. Guided tours along historical buildings and through the university life of the past. A court where high-school students will act as jurors on bioethics issues.
MADE IN GERMANY
The 2017 guest country is Germany. Drawing on scientific research and the organization of the national health systems, a comparison between Italy and Germany, with illustrious guests, to know more about the advances achieved by a European leading country, and to look for appropriate and possibly embraceable solutions to global problems.
Music, arts, cinema, shows. Medicine meets some leading figures of history and of current events, mixing issues, testing patterns of translation, trying to boost the richness of the philosophical-medical thought as compared to other disciplines.
VISIT TO THE WARD
Three beds, three patients, the same disease but different diagnoses and treatments in different historical periods. A format in between a lecture and a theatrical performance: the audience follows the “head physicians” – just like the morning “visit to the ward” in hospitals – as they interview patients/students who in turn report on the medical record of their times. The advancements of medicine during a journey in the ward of history with old and new patients.
A closer look at the social and bio-medical events, delimited topics in an effort to define even better the boundaries of the discipline while investigating its different levels of complexity.
We are living in a new time where the boundaries between different disciplines are becoming less definite. Innovation requires medicine to deal with languages and branches of research and teaching that outline likely future developments. Aesthetics and ethics, IT and computer science, telecommunications – but also the languages of art and of movie and TV fiction.
EVOLUTION OF MEDICINE
As any other science, medicine, too, is constantly and positively evolving, and the discoveries of the past shape the supporting platform for future knowledge. The lectures on the agenda provide an overview on some recent developments of bio-medical research – but also on seemingly distant disciplines, such as IT and telecommunications – and draw the forthcoming outline of medicine and of the future relationship between doctors and patients.
