The stars shine bright at the Planetarium and Astronomy Museum in Rome. For the fifth consecutive year, and until September 1st 2012, you can enjoy stunning cosmic visions within the Astrosummer event. Every night except Monday, from 9 to 10.30 p.m., an astronomical show leads the public in a dream-like journey across space, and on Sundays and Saturdays shows start at 5, 6, and 9 p.m.
A different celestial body or cosmic phenomenon is the protagonist of each night, introduced by the most famous scientists. Also on schedule are Astrotalks, chats and tales about the sky, Astrokids, with special activities for the children, Astromusic, concerts under the stars, and Astrovision, a stargazing unique experience.
Those who love literature as much as astronomy can take notes of two dates: July 29th , a night in memory of the Italian writer Primo Levi that sees the participation of the chemist and essayist Antonio di Meo and the actor Pietro Faiella; and September 1st, closing night of the event, that offers the opportunity to meet the astrophysicist Amedeo Balbi and the writer Antonio Pascale.
Astrosummer tickets goes from € 6.50 (reduced) to € 8 (full). The Planetarium and Astronomy Museum is located in Piazza Agnelli 10, Rome.
