So, where does Earth stand compared to the rest of the Universe? And what does the future hold for us? Amalia Ercoli Finzi, the first woman to graduate in Aeronautical Engineering in Italy, and Giulia Carla Bassani, in addition to talking about their respective careers in the scientific field, will take us on a journey of discovery among comets and planets, including Mars, the so-called Red Planet, which has been the focus of scientists’ attention for years, and the possibility of future human exploration of its surface.

After the summer break, the rich program of the Dante Monaco will resume on October 11 with a not-to-be-missed event: the conference “The Challenges of Artificial Intelligence” by the Franciscan Father Paolo Benanti, professor at the Pontifical Gregorian University and at the University of Seattle, advisor to Pope Francis on the topics of artificial intelligence, ethics, and technology, and the only Italian member, since October 2023, of the Secretary-General’s High-level Panel on Artificial Intelligence of the United Nations Antonio Guterres.
