HEALING THROUGH MUSIC LECTURES
For seven Mondays from October to December 2022, figures from the world of science and professors from the USI Faculty of Biomedical Sciences, led by Enzo Grossi, discussed seven themes that link music to medicine and personal wellbeing.
This is what „Healing through music„ offered, the second stage of the Culture and Health course promoted by the USI Faculty of Biomedical Sciences in collaboration with the City of Lugano Cultural Division and the IBSA Foundation for Scientific Research, which in 2022 featured the collaboration of the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana.
The seven thematic lectures, open to the public, took place place from Monday 17 October to Monday 5 December, in the Polivalente Hall of the East Campus USI in Lugano from 6 to 7:00 p.m. They involved students and PhD students from the Faculty of Biomedical Sciences and from the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana – University of Music, as well as members of the public who wished to attend.
Each lecture included an introductory key-note speech – which this year featured an international guest speaker, who was given the task of presenting the theme of the lecture based on their experience and expertise. This introduction was followed by the testimony of another expert in the field on the subject (testimonial) who spoke about their experience „in the field“. This was followed by a discussion in which one or more USI professors were involved as discussants.
