  • I have been to visit to make an inspection of work. Volumes of ancient instruments Copernicus fabulous. I'm really enchanted by how this place is nice but still too little visited!

  • We participated in the initiative "Capodimonte to head up". We were taken on a guided tour of charming, the staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional. The place as well as having an immense historical and scientific value, is placed at a strategic point overlooking enviable. Passed away, I recommend it!

  • Per se, the only property location, which allows a broad view of the city and the Gulf in General, is worth the hike. I attended a morning visit organized by the Centre itself, cost two euros, well articulated (except for the large number of visitors per group) with specialist staff seconded to each "site" (misnomer) to visit: Celostato, part Museum, Meridian Circle telescope. The disappointment is for the few things present and views, for the short time available (and gloomy day). It was a first "approach" still help to fill a spread my ignorance and understanding finally trivial ideas (like the sunlight is white, in the absence of atmosphere there is dark, the colours of the sky, etc etc). In short, it was the first time I had the opportunity to rest the eye on a real telescope and I have experienced the thrill of tap for an instant the shining core of a reality eternally elusive (an awe that still accompanies me as I write); I also asked when was the last time that I had raised my eyes interested skyward. Definitely, I was told that the evening some Fridays of the month, by prior appointment on the site you can take with the INAF, vision of the night sky through a telescope.
