Balance in… Forms. The Dance of Design //
In the article there are some projects carried out by students attending the second year of the bachelor’s course held at ISIA Institute in Rome and in the seats in Pescara and Pordenone for the joint workshop combining the course in Mathematics for Design and the course in Theory of the Form. The topic explored is balance in its broadest sense. The workshop “Balance in…Forms” is an experimental workshop where students have been invited to investigate the different aspects of the relationship between maths and design.

Imagine Math 6. Between Culture and Mathematics //
Imagine mathematics, imagine with the help of mathematics, imagine new worlds, new geometries, new forms. Imagine building mathematical models that make it possible to manage our world better, imagine combining music, art, poetry, literature, architecture and cinema with mathematics. Imagine the unpredictable and sometimes counterintuitive applications of mathematics in all areas of human endeavour. Imagination and mathematics, imagination and culture, culture and mathematics.
This sixth volume in the series begins with a homage to the architect Zaha Hadid, who died on March 31st, 2016, a few weeks before the opening of a large exhibition of  her works in Palazzo Franchetti in Venice, where all the Mathematics and Culture conferences have taken place in the last years. A large section of the book is dedicated to literature, narrative and mathematics including a contribution from Simon Singh. It discusses the role of media in mathematics, including museums of science, journals and movies. Mathematics and applications, including blood circulation and preventing crimes using earthquakes, is also addressed, while a section on mathematics and art examines the role of math in design. A large selection presents photos of mathematicians and mathematical objects by Vincent Moncorge.
Discussing all topics in a way that is rigorous but captivating, detailed but full of evocations, it offers an all-embracing look at the world of mathematics and culture.
