-Sunday 25th at 11 am, the Weird Squad (Luca Tarenzi, Adriano Barone, Andrea Vaccaro, Roberto Savoini and Sandro Capone) will present “Viral H.P.Lovecraft”, an irreverent and interesting conference about the viral phenomenon of the Master of Providence.

-Sunday 25th March at 12 am, the book launch of “Frankenstein, tra scienza e immaginario” by Marco Ciardi and Pier Luigi Gaspa.
