Mare Sopra: success for the first event of the project at the Teatro Miela

The first event of the educational project Mare Sopra, which took place at the Teatro Miela on May 9th, garnered significant interest from the audience. The initiative, conceived by Stefano Furlani, associate professor of geomorphology at the University of Trieste, aims to raise awareness about the issue of rising sea levels caused by climate change.

The day began with the screening of the documentary 2100. There’s no time to waste, which, through the contributions of scientists and experts, examines the effects of climate change on environments and natural resources in 26 emerged and submerged sites along the Sicilian coast, attempting to imagine the situation in 2100, the year that science uses to simulate future environmental scenarios based on the data collected so far. The film, already awarded at various festivals, was produced in 2021 by Fabrizio Antonioli, associated with the Institute of Environmental Geology and Geoengineering of the CNR (CNR-IGAG), and Thalassia Giaccone, from the Anton Dohrn Zoological Station.

Following the screening was a roundtable discussion on the theme Impact of Rising Sea Levels on the Coasts of Friuli Venezia Giulia, moderated by Franco Foresta Martin, former scientific and environmental editor of Corriere della Sera and Rai consultant (Quark and Geo&Geo). The discussion involved some of the leading experts in climate change and marine biology: Fabrizio Antonioli, coastal geomorphologist from CNR-IGAG, specialized in the study of sea level variations; glaciologist Renato R. Colucci from CNR-ISP; physicist Fabio Raicich from CNR-ISMAR; marine microbiologist Francesca Malfatti (UniTS); climate physicist and Nobel Prize winner Filippo Giorgi (ICTP); Giorgio Fontolan, lecturer in Sedimentology and Coastal Dynamics at UniTS; and paleontology lecturer Carlo Corradini (UniTS).

Mare Sopra is a project coordinated by the University of Trieste, funded by the Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia, and developed in collaboration with the Miramare Marine Protected Area, the Municipality of Muggia, the Marevivo Association - FVG Delegation, the Marco Polo Comprehensive Institute of Grado, and the Galileo Galilei Scientific High School of Trieste.

The University of Trieste in 2024 has started to organise a series of in-depth meetings on Public and Social Engagement - Third Mission aimed at teaching and research staff, technical-administrative staff, PhD and PhD students, students of the University of Trieste, as well as external researchers and other organisations that have collaborated with the University of Trieste in the same field over time. 

Below are the programmes, recordings, images and slides of all the events already held and archived on OpenstarTs, the University of Trieste's open access digital archive.

Velonotte, a cultural bike ride between Gorizia e Nova Gorica

Partecipanti evento Tetriss

A path-narrative between languages and places, between two cities and multiple cultures, between East and West. This is how Velonotte ai confini was described, a cultural bike ride between Gorizia and Nova Gorica led by Sergey Nikitin-Rimsky, art historian and urban educator, inventor and founder of the International Velonotte Project. The initiative took place on May 11th 2024 and was organized by the T.E.T.R.I.S.S. Cultural Square Project, a project of the Department of Legal, Language, Interpretation and Translation Sciences IUSLIT of the University of Trieste, under the scientific responsibility of Professor Margherita De Michiel.
The velotour started from the central station of Gorizia, where e-bikes from the cross-border circuit between the two cities were distributed, continuing on a route through some of the most significant places in the city of Gorizia. The journey ended with a guided tour by historian Blaž Kosovel at the Town Hall of Nova Gorica and its Green Hall (Zelena Dvorana), where the spectacular frescoes by painter Slavko Pengov are located, depicting some of the most important events in the history of the Slovenian Littoral. The velotour concluded in front of the "ruski bloki", condominiums and examples of brutalist architecture found in all former socialist countries.
Velonotte ai confini included various moments of sharing and dissemination of gadgets and cultural products designed by the TETRISS Cultural Square, in a bilingual Italian and Slovenian format. Among these was a limited edition of the "Cultural @Cards dedicated to the Cosmos", created in collaboration with the renowned company Modiano.
