GALLERY CLOSED: LIFE AS A SCIENTIST - The Faces of “100 Female Experts” Project

In anticipation of International Women's Day (March 8) and of Italian Research Day (April 15) , the Italian Cultural Institute in Los Angeles hosts the photographic exhibition Life as a Scientist - The Faces of “100 Female Experts” Project organized with the Bracco Foundationin coordination with the Embassy of Italy in US and under the auspices of the Consulate General of Italy in Los Angeles.

This exhibition pays tribute to Italian female expertise in science, technology, engineering and mathematics as a key element for growth, and progress and as a driving force behind bilateral relations between Italy and the US.

The exhibition is part of the “100 women against stereotypes” initiative, created in 2016 from the Pavia Observatory and the Association of female journalists Gi.U.Li.A, in collaboration with the Bracco Foundation and with the support of the European Commission’s Representation in Italy. Indeed, women are seldom consulted by the media as experts and the series of portraits “Life as a Scientist”, by acclaimed photographer Gerald Bruneau, was specifically commissioned to help overcome the bias often associated with the work of women in science and technology and to bring the general public closer to their achievements.
