After the Lockdown, on Friday, June 5th, 2020 the Moise Palace Program was finally launched with an event – “Fridays at the Moise”, opening the Moise Palace to citizens of Cres and their guests. The first lecture, entitled “The Poetics and the Poeticness of Physics – To See the World in a Grain of Sand” was held by prof. dr. sc. Rajka Jurdana Šepić, University of Rijeka, Department for Physics. For last Friday’s Moise visitors, prof. Jurdana Šepić uncovered what is poetic in physics and science in general, as well as having explained why science and art are more akin than is usually considered. During the evening, prof. Jurdana Šepić, who enjoys and also writes poetry in the Croatian language and in Čakavian dialect, also held a poetic performance entitled “Star Verses and Space Landscapes”. The event was attended by the maximum number of visitors, given the prescribed epidemiological measures.

“Fridays at the Moise” is a program dedicated to the citizens of Cres, Lošinj, and everyone who is able to attend lectures and activities related to various topics whose common denominator is based on a scientific way of thinking and concluding. The contents of the planned programs are intended for all age groups and professions.

The academic activities for citizens at the Moise Palace will, for now, take place every Friday, and the upcoming lectures will bring topics from the fields of pedagogy, medicine, biotechnology, as well as those from the field of art.

“Fridays at the Moise” continues next Friday, June 12th, 2020, with a lecture on “The Role of Grandparents in Modern Childhood”, which will be held by dr. sc. Jasna Krstović.
