Fiorenzo Omenetto

It's produced in a sustainable manner, it strengthens other fabrics and it's used in medicine for a whole range of purposes.  One of the most elegant materials nature offers us, silk is used by scientists today to produce optic and optoelectronic nanostructured components.  Fiorenzo Omenetto will be explaining how we start with the yarn the silkworm produces and end up with fully-fledged marvels of modern technology.
