BrainCircle Italia is a no profit association, founded by Viviana Kasam in 2010 under the aegis of Nobel Prize laureate Rita Levi Montalcini to sustain scientific research and divulgation, and strengthen the ties between science and art, focusing on art and brain.
A veritable think tank of international events, BrainCircle Italia has created and organized several Brainforum meetings at Piccolo Teatro and Teatro Franco Parenti in Milan and at Temple of Adriano in Rome; the exhibit The colour of thought set open air in central public spaces in the cities of Milan, Paris, Lisbone, Deauville; Reti, debates between artists and neuroscientists at Teatro Palladium in Rome; conferences and seminars in many locations and festivals in Italy.
For the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, BrainCircle Italia created on January 27, 2014 the concert I violini della speranza (The violins of hope) , and on January 26, 2015 the concert Tutto ciò che mi resta (Remembrance is all I own) . Both took place in Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome and were broadcast live by Italian public Tv on channel Rai 5.
All events are free of charge and have the support of national and international public institution and private sponsors.
