Gabriella Greison

She is a physicist, writer and journalist.  She has presented various programmes on scientific popularisation for radio and television, and collaborates with several different news publications.  Now, in her books and in theatres, she talks about the history of physics and the life of the greatest scientists of the twentieth century.

She has a degree in Nuclear Physics from the University of Milan, and has worked in the field of scientific popularisation for several radio programmes, on Radio Popolare, RAI Radio Due, the Caterpillar programme and Radio Deejay.
She has collaborated with television programmes and newspapers and magazines, including Il Manifesto, la Gazzetta dello Sport, Linea Bianca, GQ, Traveller, Sportweek, Vanity Fair, the weekly magazines Il Ruvido and Focus, and the newspapers Il Riformista and Pubblico.
Since September 2016 she has collaborated with RAINews24, creating and presenting “Pillole di Fisica”, mini-episodes in which she talks about a physicist, a moral or a story.
For Hoepli she wrote “Dove nasce la nuova fisica”, a book which focuses on the turning points in the history of physics, starting with the exceptional meetings of physicists in Brussels.  More detailed research, focusing entirely on the year 1927, led to the publication of “L’incredibile cena dei fisici quantistici”(Adriano Salani Editore).
She created the “Monologo quantistico”, which follows the tradition of narrative theatre, going around schools, festivals, book shops and theatres all over Italy.  Since 2016-2017, “1927 – Monologo Quantistico” has become a theatre show, produced by Teatro Menotti of Milan.
In 2017, for the publishing company Bollati Boringhieri, she wrote the monologue “L’alfabeto dell’universo”, which was performed at the Planetarium in Milan and the Turin Book Fair, as well as the book “Sei donne che hanno cambiato il mondo”. As part of the celebrations of the 150th anniversary of Marie Curie’s birth, in 2017, she debuted her new theatrical monologue, entitled “Due donne ai raggi x. Marie Curie e Hedy Lamarr, ve le racconto io”.
She is the curator of the first Theatre-Science Festival dedicated entirely to physics, which will take place in Milan in 2018, entitled “W la Fisica!”.
