Tullio Levi-Civita lectures

In the framework of the activities of the International Research Center MeMoCS, the Levi Civita Lectures have been established since 2013 in honor of the famous Italian Mathematical Physicist.
The Levi Civita Lectures are held by a single well-established scientist, who is the recipient of the International Levi Civita Prize, and two young promising researchers to illustrate the scientific results obtained.
The Lectures hold alternately in the Department of Mathematics “Castelnuovo” (where Levi-Civita worked and were his successors are now continuing his scientific tradition), and in the locations of the International Research Center MeMoCS.
