Photography Between Scientific Evidence and Interpretation

Is there a role for subjective interpretation and individual storytelling in medical science ? What is the role of photography - with its intrinsic ambiguity - in creating scientific and narrative evidence ? Dr. Massimo Costantini (Director of the Reggio Emilia IRCCS Research Institute) and Dr. Chiara Bassi (Director of the IRCCS Medical Library) invited Luca De Fiore (Medical Journalist and Publisher), Luca Panaro (Art Critic and Professor at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts) and myself on a talk at the Library of the Reggio Emilia S. Maria Nuova Teaching Hospital (September 20, 2017).
