An Italian-language site devoted to biomedical and scientific research.


In our society there is an under-current of rejection of Science and scientific culture. There is a desire to begin a "new age", with a different relationship to Nature, a return to a life that follows ancient rythms, a new environmental consciousness, a new, deep, universal harmony.

To some extent, these aspirations are legitimate, even positive. However, this fashion is open to abuse, either for financial gain or for fanaticism. It is dangerous to accept uncritically the view that Science and rationalism are the causes of the crisis and of the problems of our age, to join the "holy war" against rational thinking.

We subscribe to the opposite view, that the crisis of our age arises from a general misunderstanding of what Science really is, of what it means to do scientific research. This web site contains some contributions that we have made, over the years, to the discussion on these controversial issues.
