INAF - Osservatorio Astronomico di Padova

L' INAF - Osservatorio Astronomico di Padova è una struttura di ricerca dell'Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica. L' attività principale dell'istituto è la ricerca scientifica nei vari campi dell'astrofisica, inclusa la progettazione e lo sviluppo di tecnologie innovative per strumentazione astronomica d’avanguardia. L'Osservatorio di Padova favorisce inoltre la diffusione della cultura scientifica grazie a progetti di didattica e divulgazione dell’Astronomia che si rivolgono alla Scuola e alla Società.

Popular Astronomy

La Sepcola di Padova

The National Institute for Astrophysics promotes the dissemination of scientific culture through educational projects and the popularization of astronomy for schools and society.

This is the reason why our astronomical Observatories, located in Padova and Asiago, are strongly involved in outreach activities with general public. Mostly of our activities are planned and performed in Italian language but in these web pages you can find also some popular astronomical web sites in English and other useful information.

You can also plan a guided tour to one or both of our sites, Padova and Asiago, and you can stay always updated reading our astronews web site.
