ICTP ON THE AIR
About four million Italians, tuning into the popular Raiuno science programme Superquark on Wednesday evening 26 June, had an opportunity to view a segment that featured Tadele Adamtie Mengesha, a young Ethiopian mathematician attending ICTP's Diploma Course. The segment told about Mengesha's recent experience in Trieste and his life growing up in Ethiopia, including his years of study at the University of Addis Ababa, where he earned his degree. Film footage for the segment was shot last March. Piero Angela, Italy's most renowned science journalist and broadcaster, hosts the programme. Another television transmission on the Centre, featuring an extensive interview with former ICTP Director Miguel Virasoro, was broadcast by Rai International at the end of May.
