The scientists at the Osservatorio were professional and competent. At the same time, they explained things to us in such a manner as to make the night sky easy to understand. The tour was interesting and worthwhile. Jupiter, Venus, Saturn and the Moon did their job perfectly! Thanks to the researchers Enza, Giovanni and Giuseppe!
