Between science and art, Ferrara changed face to face with Professor Zamboni

Paolo Zamboni

On Wednesday May 11 at 6 pm, at the Circolo Unione on Via Lollio, Paolo Zamboni’s book “Hidden in the Cloth” will be presented.

The meeting organized by the Ferrara Campia Association for Social Advancement will be moderated by Andrea Maggi, President of the same association.

One of the best Italian scientists, Paolo Zamboni, Professor of Vascular Surgery, Director of the School of Specialization in Vascular Surgery and the Center for Vascular Diseases of the University of Ferrara.

Zamboni is known worldwide for his exceptional research activity and for being the Principal Investigator on the Drain Brain Project implemented in orbit in 2015 by astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti.

The project will now be repeated as the first place in the Italian Space Agency’s call for “a human flight into space for research and technological demonstrations” on the International Space Station Drain Brain Part 1: AstroSamantha mission.

But Professor Zamboni is also a big fan of art. In moments of escape, between books, travels, and exhibitions, he realized that he could not help but remain a doctor even in front of the most unusual portraits painted by the greatest artists of every era. In this way he began noticing the clinical signs of the diseases depicted, perhaps without his knowledge, in some of his most famous works of art.

From Caravaggio to Leonardo’s Mona Lisa, From Rubens to Rembrandt to Frida Kahlo: The Doctor examined thirty paintings halfway between plastic art, science, history, and medical art. A book full of delicious tales and curiosity that is well worth reading.
