Σύστημα. Being togetherThe magic loom: a lesson in the brain

MAXXI auditorium
free admission subject to availability
event in Italian

Giulio Maira takes us on a journey to discover the beauty of that magic loom that makes us unique and different from all other living beings.

Thanks to his long career as a neurosurgeon, Giulio Maira has studied the mysteries and mechanisms of the workings of the most complex machine in the universe, the brain: an organ home to intelligence and also to our senses and deepest emotions.

“Σύστημα” (System) is a series of encounters in which poetry, new technologies and artistic creativity dialogue to dissect reality and provide new interpretative keys. A series of debates in which contemporary art becomes the hinge of the close relationship between humanism, engineering and philosophy to imagine a future in which the beauty of change will be entrusted solely to the measure of the man.

In collaboration with Fondazione Leonardo-Civiltà delle Macchine and Gruppo CDP – Cassa Depositi e Prestiti.
