Encara que tan sols l’1% dels casos de càncer es poden considerar de tipus hereditari, en l’actualitat s’han descrit més de 200 síndromes caracteritzades per l’agregació familiar de distints tipus de tumors. La identifi cació al llarg del segle XX de molts dels gens responsables d’aquestes síndromes ha permès un gran avenç en la caracterització d’aquestes famílies a l’hora d’identifi car o descartar els individus en risc i establir mesures preventives específi ques. No obstant això, existeix encara un alt percentatge de casos hereditaris en què la causa de la susceptibilitat és desconeguda, la qual cosa fa de la recerca de nous gens mitjançant les noves tecnologies una de les prioritats en investigació.

We thought it would be interesting to invite Joan Francesc Mira and Antonio Ariño to this interview to discuss the origins of festivals, their links with seasonal cycles, even the biological background that may exist in many facets of festivals.

A Itàlia se celebren multitud de festes populars protagonitzades per l'ofrena de pans cerimonials. La presència de pans votius, de vegades antropomorfs, s'escampa per diverses regions. A Sicília encara s'observa una àmplia tipologia de pans cerimonials, en particular amb motiu de les festes de Sant Josep i Setmana Santa. Aquests pans tan «particulars» s'ofereixen també, però, amb motiu d'altres diades i de moltes festes patronals o d'especial rellevància per a una comunitat concreta. De particular interès són, per la forma i l'ús ritual, els pans antropomorfs ofrenats com a exvots per recompondre l'ordre del cos i del cosmos.
