Diamonds in the dark

​The infrastructures

Antonio De Luca in this  article explains how the infrastructures suitable for observing the sky in the Pollino area should be.

The Pollino area lends itself perfectly to observation of the sky thanks to the very low levels of light pollution.

First of all, it is necessary to identify places, far from the inhabited center, in a sufficiently elevated position and with little vegetation around.

Then they should be equipped with pitches for astronomical observation and be accessible in any season.

The  infrastructures of this type could be interesting for both amateur astronomers and educational institutions that intend to offer their students an unusual, stimulating and inspiring experience.


Crypto Strategy

There will be greetings from the Mayor Giovanni Ruggiero .

Prof. Francesco Chitarrelli talks with the author.

The book is a compelling fictional story set in the Mercure Lao Valley!

Another story


It is still active in Rotonda, every Friday until January 2022,  the project of the Pollino Natural History Museum dedicated to children and teenagers.

The aim of the initiative is to raise awareness of one's territory, history and archeology through play.
