About Me

Hello, my name is Barbara Bernardini.

I’ve always been in love with science. The idea that you can have such a clear and wonderful filter to explore the world around us and appreciate its beauty, the surprises and the apparent contradictions won me over me after my first glance through a microscope, when I discovered a world made of shapes , structures, chemistry, and fascinating formulas that I never wanted to leave ever again. I was about 7 years old and I had just destroyed every jar of my “little chemist” game in an awkward attempt to create a solution that had three different colours in the same test tube. To bring order to the scientific chaos within me, I became a biologist and PhD in molecular medicine. Then, following an unstoppable desire to communicate this enthusiasm to others, I started with documentaries, articles, conferences, scientific communication projects and the wonderful adventure of “Superquark”, as part of Piero Angela’s staff, projects that have accompanied me for over 20 years and gave me the inspiration to build my firm: ONEFRAME -Creative Science Communication

For 20 years my life has been a full immersion in every scientific area of ​​human knowledge, from physics to medicine to deep space, a world in which I have learnt much more than I could transmit to others. So, it is time to return some of this privilege.

That’s why “Brainsinitaly”was founded, the most ambitious project of all …. and the most personal because it embodies what I deeply believe in: an open science that comes out of the laboratories and becomes fluid information, direct and understandable for the curious public, a matter of reflection and a starting point for those who invest in technology, a source of scientific culture for those who study or teach, helping to unmask the “fake” and to grow the foundations for a more rational, more modern and fairer society.
