    This year's relator is Massimo Bucciantini. The event takes place in the Great Hall of the School of Natural Sciences, Physics, and Mathematics of the University of Turin.

     

    Every fall, the Primo Levi Lecture proposes proposes a discussion on particular topics of Levi’s works, as they come into relevance with the most recent topics of the cultural debate. This year, relator Massimo Bucciantini, Professor of History of Science at the University of Siena-Arezzo, discusses The Auschwitz Experiment, analyzing how, across Levi’s work, the Lager has been seen and observed as the most horrible experiment conducted by men against other men.

    The Lecture is addressed to the general public, but pays particular attention to the younger generations, with the goal of continuing the intense dialogue that Levi used in schools to engage others for such a long period of his life. This year, three classes of the Liceo Galileo Ferraris – scientific high school in Torino – participate in the lecture, and meet the lecturer the following day, to discuss the topics that were touched upon.


    The Lecture will then be published and printed in Italian and English by Einaudi.
