Start date: 
End date: 

On Saturday 11 May it will be possible to observe the sky through telescopes in Piazza dei Miracoli.

The event is completely free of charge and is part of the second edition of 'Riscopriamo Pisa', a cycle of 100 free guided tours. The Municipality of Pisa is organising the evening, dedicated to the astronomical observation of celestial objects, in collaboration with the 'Astrofili Tampiano' group - which will provide experience, equipment and instruments suitably equipped for both ocular vision and photographic shooting - and with the support and availability of the Opera della Primaziale Pisana. For the occasion, an unprecedented Piazza del Duomo will be admired, with reduced lighting to allow the telescopes to detect the faint light of the objects of the celestial vault, chosen for observation.
