Milan to celebrate Darwin with free events

9-12 Feb. festivities for the scientist’s 208th birthday.

Milan will join scientific institutions across the world celebrating the run-up to the 208th birthday of Charles Darwin, author of On the Origin of Species, with a programme of special events.

The festivities begin on Thursday 9 February at the city’s Natural History Museum in Corso Venezia 55, and peak on International Darwin Day, Sunday 12 February.

The theme of this year’s programme is “Symbiosis: the coexistence of different organisms”. The programme will include lectures, workshops, and a play, all of them with free entry as long as places are available. The events will also be streamed live on the website www.scienzainrete.it.

On Sunday, kids from 4-5 years (and their families) can learn all about fish and the coral reef, and those from 6-11 about animals, in two play sessions, entry €5 per person, to be booked through the event website.
