In this guided tour, we are going to present one of the projects curated by Filippo Rosati from Garden Bologna as a premier. The project that we are going to present is Un suono in estinzione, art & science project aimed at monitoring climate change implications on alpine glaciers through an artistic exploration.

Sudden collapses of sections, noises, opening of crevasses: these are just some of the possible sound phenomena that occur on glaciers during the seasons and that climate changes trigger more frequently. These are precious documents, as these sounds are the acoustic representation of the symptoms of the change in progress and a tool for monitoring that gives information on when and in what frequency these phenomena. Through the installation of custom recording devices, we will monitor the changes from inside the Adamello glacier in Italy throughout the seasons… In the guided tour, we will speak about the data and environment, connecting cultural and scientific research. At the end of the session, we will have a Q&A.
