Abstract

(English) More than a decade after the publication of the Science and Society report by the House of Lords, which introduced concepts such as dialogue and public engagement that significantly contributed to change theories and practices of science communication, it seemed reasonable to take some time to reflect on the patterns of science communication that characterize the relation between scientists and member of the public. With this paper we would like to report the results of a survey circulated amongst a sample of Italian physicists who were asked to reflect on their relation with members of the public in light of their personal experiences and practices of communication. As it emerges from the pages that follow the respondents communicate science in many different ways that are not enclosed in fixed models of science communication circulated amongst academics, and on the contrary include a multiplicity of activities, opinions and forms of communication. (Italiano) Un decennio dopo la pubblicazione del rapporto Scienza e Società da parte della House of Lords inglese, con il quale sono stati introdotti i concetti di dialogo e public engagement che hanno contribuito significativamente a modificare teorie e pratiche di comunicazione della scienza, ci sembra opportuno provare a riflettere sulle modalità con cui gli scienziati si rapportano con il pubblico. Con questo paper vogliamo quindi riportare i risultati ottenuti da un sondaggio postale online sottoposto a un campione di ricercatori impegnati nel campo della fisica cui è stato chiesto di riflettere sul rapporto tra scienza e pubblico anche alla luce delle loro personali esperienze e pratiche di comunicazione della scienza. Come si evince dalle pagine che seguono, le modalità con cui i nostri intervistati comunicano la scienza non possono essere racchiuse in modelli fissi e prestabiliti, e sono caratterizzata da una multiciplita di attività, opinioni e forme.
