June 3, 2021 – The School of Bioethics of the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum, Neurobioethics Study Group, the BrainCircleItalia organize two days of reflection dedicated to the post-pandemic, ethics, law, statistics, and vaccines anti-COVID.


Many questions and multiple issues will be addressed:

  • surveillance and individual control through biometric recognition, which states could maintain and implement even after the epidemic crisis;
  • the role of the digital revolution, as a new form of coexistence between men that can redefine the current concepts of privacy and freedom;
  • the redefinition of our identity spaces, reshaped by these invisible threats.


We are living a very complex historical moment, on one hand the best era to be able to face this Pandemic clinically and technologically, on the other hand the Coronavirus that, like a “storm”, is unmasking our vulnerabilities, leaving uncovered those superfluous securities with which we have built our agendas, our projects, our habits, and priorities.


A Panel of the highest scientific and cultural background (including Viviana Kasam – President BrainCircleItalia, Prof. Fr. Alberto Carrara, LC, Dir. of Neurobioethics Study Group APRA – UER, Prof. Gian Carlo Blangiardo, President of ISTAT, Prof. Marina Pizzi, Dean of Research, University of Brescia, Prof. Matilde Leonardi Neurologist, pediatrician, Director UOC – Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Neurologico Carlo Besta, Milan, Prof. Amedeo Santosuosso, Former President of First Chamber, Court of Appeal of Milan Professor of Law, Science, New Technologies at the University of Pavia, Department of Law Professor of ICTs, Artificial Intelligence and law at Institute of Advanced Studies (IUSS), Pavia (I) and many others) divided into four sessions, will confront and debate on these issues, in an interdisciplinary wide-ranging confrontation.
