From 24th of October to 4th of November 2019, the 17th Festival of Science (“Festival della Scienza 2019”) was held in Genoa, Italy, which is one of the largest events of its kind worldwide. The main theme of this year’s festival – “Elements” – was commemorating the International year of the periodic table, bringing together several events with a special emphasis on chemistry. The Festival was attended by dr. Kristian Radan from the Electronic Ceramics Department and dr. Matic Lozinšek from the Department of Inorganic Chemistry and Technology and the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology, University of Ljubljana, with an experimental show entitled “Kitchen Experiments” (“Esperimenti da cucina”). They carried out a number of interesting chemical experiments that can be performed at home using everyday substances. In addition, the show also included a selection of more demanding, attractive experiments, which they have been enthusiastically developing over the years within the activities of the School of Experimental Chemistry at the Department of Inorganic chemistry and technology of the Jožef Stefan Institute.
