The catalogue, printed in occasion of the exhibition at Palazzo delle Esposizioni (17th October 2021-27th February 2022), illustrate the history of scientific ideas and their impact on society through the great scientists who have worked in Rome and the major discoveries that have been made here. It tells the history of figures of the calibre of Galileo Galilei, Copernicus, Angelo Secchi, Enrico Fermi, Giovanni Battista Grassi, Stanislao Cannizzaro, Guglielmo Marconi and Vito Volterra, to name but a few, have breathed life over the centuries into a myriad well-known or lesser-known historical and scientific events imbued with humanity, curiosity and a passion for research. Aerospace, agronomy, anthropology, astronomy, biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, medicine and earth sciences: there is not a single discipline that has not found in the city of Rome the perfect stage for its development and indeed on many occasions even its founding moment.

The catalogue, printed in occasion of the exhibition at Palazzo delle Esposizioni (17th October 2021-27th February 2022), collect critical and scientifical essays on the category of uncertainty, that permeates modern scientific vision, in particular the vision of those sciences that we tend to describe as “exact”. This, because our knowledge of the world is the product of observations and measurements that always contain a margin of uncertainty. The rapid changes taking place today and, even more disruptively, the impact of the current pandemic on our lives, have made the issue of uncertainty all-pervasive and persistent, placing it at the very heart of our efforts to interpret the contemporary world. The book and the exhibition set out to illustrate some of the many facets of the notion of uncertainty and the ways in which science deals with it.
