Fiorella Operto, Vice President
Educated in Philosophy, following her studies, she cooperated with an American Magazine and a Publishing House in Washington, D.C. Back home, she started a book series devoted to science dissemination (I Dialoghi, Di Renzo Editore). She has acquired specific experience in science dissemination and popularization, working in collaboration with Scientific Laboratories and Research Centres in Europe and in the United States, starting from the position that research in science and dissemination of scientific knowledge must go hand in hand. Her activity pivots around the use and invention of new means of communicating scientific discoveries and hypothesis to a non specific readership, means mediated through every form of communication (novels, theatre, movies, documentaries, music, adverts), while maintaining the content true and accurate. From 1999 she has co-operated with the CNR-IAN Robotics Department of the National Research Council in Genoa, Italy, promoting the knowledge and understanding of the new science of Robotics. She is the Vice President of the School of Robotics, which she co-founded in 2000.
