In the framework of the services on light and darkness offered by pibinko.org with the BuioMetria Partecipativa project, here is an “aperitivo” to start listening to light with a different ear, and to co-design the BuioMetria Partecipativa 2019 Summer Campaign. The event will also see the world premiere presentation of site from where it is possible to observe the Milky Way (in Italian) by day.
All this will be on the avenue to the upcoming conference on interdisciplinary protection and promotion of the night sky, scheduled for May 16 at the University of Brescia, and where the BuioMetria Partecipativa project is managing the scientific program of the event.
Why did we call this a “buioblitz“? This is a sort of loose adaptation of the bioblitz concept, merged with the noun “buio”, which means darkness in Italian…in case you were not aware, with pibinko.org we do a lot of cross-over with words and names…
The event is part of the Lab Boat project, and you can register to attend on this page.
For you information, the image used for the event is by Federico Giussani, our main nightscape photographer. It was shot in a site called “Le Rocchette” close to Castiglione della Pescaia (Southern Tuscany) a couple of years ago. The guy you see contemplating the sky is in fact Federico.
Yesterday we were notified that the May 16 conference which with the BuioMetria Partecipativa project we are organizing at the University of Brescia has been recognized as a valid event to issue training credits for Chartered Architects and engineers.
This news adds more value and interest to the event we are preparing. The full presentation of the conference is available on this page.

Following the event in Tatti (Southern Tuscany), and the presentation of the first verison of the community map of its surroundings, and in the context of a rich program of events through June (pending further updates), you are invited in Scansano, Southern Tuscany for an afternoon with the pibinko.org network.
The event will have a focus on the BuioMetria Partecipativa project and its interdisciplinary approach to promotion and protection of the night sky, but also the other typical elements of the pibinko.org “gigs” will be available.
The conference will take place during the International Light Day celebrated by UNESCO, and has been accepted by the Charter of Architects and the Charter of Engineers in Brescia as valid for the issue of training credits.
