In collaboration with Fondazione Marino Golinelli, a White Night for the general public took place at the Life Learning Center Bologna, the first Italian center for training and research on life sciences where, for the past 13 years, thousands of students experienced laboratory activities in the field of genetics.

Researchers, animators and students conducted experiments, demonstrations and games to highlight how biotechnology can be used, for example, in the control of food quality, improving food production, in cultivation and botanical studies, in archaeology and paleontology and in medical research.
