Italy was one of the first European countries to develop an atomic policy and one of the first to shut down its nuclear power plants. How can we explain the peculiarity of Italy’s experience? This lecture will examine the history of Italy’s civilian nuclear programme during the Cold War, when atomic energy symbolised both the promise of unlimited growth and the threat of global annihilation.

This is a virtual event held as a zoom webinar. Please register to attend.

As a webinar attendee, you can view the speakers' and hosts' videos and see their presentations. The Q&A facility allows you to engage with the speakers after the talk. You do not need a camera yourself, as attendee videos are not shown. More information on how to join a webinar is available here.
