As a spin-off of the March 13 workshop at the Osservatorio Ximeniano in Florence, Elena Maggi received and invitation to present the activities by the University of Pisa in the context of the interdisciplinary protection and promotion of the night sky work which is happening with the BuioMetria Partecipativa project and with the National Research Council in Florence (Institute of Biometeorology).
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.
We would also like to take the opportunity of this event in Alghero to remind you of previous experiences by the BuioMetria Partecipativa project in Sardinia (2008a Cagliari, 2008b Monte Arcuentu, 2012 Alghero, 2017 Sassari, Cagliari, S. M. Navarrese ecc)
