On the occasion of the Nineteenth Giornata del Contemporaneo promoted by AMACI, Peola Simondi Gallery presents Mushrooms redesign the world, a dialogue between art and science featuring Laura Pugno and Samuele Voyron, a research technician from the Department of Life Sciences and Systems Biology (DBios) at the University of Turin. The discussion will explore the world of mushrooms, with a particular focus on their metabolic properties, which allow them to break down and recycle waste materials such as lignin, crude oil, polyurethane, and even trinitrotoluene (TNT).
