Piero Angela: Fabris (Univ. Pisa), “a serious loss to our culture. He was able to show the poetic character and the humanistic value of the scientific disciplines”
“The death of Piero Angela is truly a serious loss for our culture. In an Italy that has always given – various researches say – little attention and has had little interest in Stems, scientific disciplines, including technological, engineering and mathematical disciplines, a figure like that of Piero Angela has offered these contents and these ways to look at the world in a way that is both qualified and precise but also very friendly, clear, familiar. He did not sacrifice rigor to disclosure ”. He tells Sir Adriano Fabris, professor of Moral Philosophy and Ethics of Communication at the University of Pisa, on the occasion of the passing today of Piero Angela. “In addition to this popularizing ability, we also remember Pietro Angela’s elegant and recognizable style in delivering this scientific information”, adds Fabris. “Piero Angela was an innovator and a forerunner in his field, because in the wake of his way of promoting such contents, many others followed him, with greater or lesser success”, observes the teacher.
“Its function for Italian culture was really very important because it brought to everyone’s attention the need for training and knowledge of Stems, also showing their poetic character, literary and humanistic value. This was another of the important characteristics of his way of delivering these contents ”, concludes Fabris.
