This year, the Life Pinna project will also be included in the program of the Genoa Science Festival, one of the most important events in Europe for the promotion of scientific culture.
On Tuesday, October 25th, an event titled ‘A mollusk to save – Halting the extinction of Pinna nobilis’ will take place at the University Library. During this event, some of the researchers involved in the Life Pinna project will present the project to the public, discussing the crisis that has affected the species, its importance to the marine ecosystem, and the activities that research organizations are implementing to try to recover it in its natural habitat. Francesco Tomasinelli from Triton Research, the project’s communication partner, will moderate the conference, and the panel will include Marco Casu, a zoologist from the University of Sassari, Monica Montefalcone, a marine ecologist from the University of Genoa, and Marco Segarich, a biologist from Shoreline and the Miramare Marine Protected Area.
