Paleontologist and Doctor of Biological Sciences Juan Luis Arsuaga, psychiatrist Luis Rojas Marcos, writer and journalist Juan José Millás, journalist and art historian Anatxu Zabalbeascoa, architect Juli Capella, neurobiologist Mara Dierssen, Ana Lluch Professor of Medicine at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Valencia and architect Benedetta Tagliabue; will participate in the various events of the two sessions, (morning and afternoon) in which the FIDI has been divided.
On the morning session, “Matter” will be addressed, focusing on how materials have influenced health throughout the ages, addressing topics such as the construction of the habitat itself, utensils, tools, weapons, clothing… On the afternoon session, the focus will be on “Wellbeing”, highlighting the relationship between wellbeing and living spaces and will delve into the influence of spaces on people’s health.
