Interview with Marco Ciardi

2022, FestivalScienza, Giuseppe Murru, Marco Ciardi

Newspapers, weeklies, radios and televisions have always dedicated ample space to topics such as paranormal phenomena, astrological forecasts, contacts with extraterrestrials, often treating all of this in an uncritical way, without any control criteria. Furthermore, today, thanks to the Internet, unverified claims in support of unproven therapies, urban legends, historical forgeries and conspiracy theories are increasingly common. But how is a pseudoscientific theory born? We talked about it with Marco Ciardi, University of Florence, author of the book “Brief history of pseudosciences“, Hoepli – La Grande Libreria Online 2021, finalist for the Asimov award 2022.
