A month long series of events dedicated to showcase the Italian contribution in the different fields of science and technology with particular emphasis on the research taking place in Southern California.

The program includes the interactive exhibition Italy of the Future promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and aimed at presenting Italy through scientific research and technological developements, to help breaking the stereotyped image of our country only as a cradle of humanities. Thanks to the collaboration of some of the main centers of excellence in the field of science and technology, the exhibition presents a selection of examples of the most important international innovations coming from Italy, among which the first prototype of the i-Cub robot.

During the month-long event, a series of seminars and talks by renowened Italian reserachers working in Southern California underlines the Italian contribution to international scientific research and to the developeent of new lifestyles in response to the changes in the environment in which we live and work.

The event is organized in collaboration with ISSNAF (Italian Scientists and Scholars in North America Foundation).
