Researchers’ night – FRASCATI

 

The Reasearchers’ night is an event organised in the framework of the Week dedicated to the Science (22th – 27th September) and it will be held on September 26th, from 4.00 pm until after midnight in Frascati, 20 kms south of Rome, along the Tuscolana. image

The project, involving 8 Italian regions and 40 European Sites, aims at fostering the knowledge of Science and Reasearch among the public and is promoted by some of the most outstanding Italian and European reasearch organizations, such as the CNR (National Research Council), Enea (Italian National Agency for New Technology, Energy, Environment), along with the ESA (European Space Agency) and the INAF (National Institute of Astrophysics).

The Researchers’ night is a free Event to one of the most impressive manifestation, where a variety of shows is available and a series of extraordinary inventions is presented. For instance the artificial nose, recognizing the finest smells,  the plastic bags made out of tomatoes, the interactive Lego robots, a talking face called “Lucia” who can smile, cry and get moved and, least but not last, the refreshing jacket: a terrific idea for these hot summer days in Rome, isn’t it? And if you are craving for a promenade on the via Flaminia Antica or for a visit in the Scrovegni Chapel in Padoa? Here you can do it! Virtually, of course… image

The boring stereotype of the researcher being so fully immerged in their inventions and who gets no spare time left for fun and hobbies is simply over! Just an old cliché, as it’s shown in the section dedicated to the Researchers’ hobbies which include non professional music shows and chorus, games, sport activities, theatre and photographic exhibitions.

Thrilled by the idea but you think it’s too far away? If you book our lovely YES Hotel by the Central Station, then you will be able to take any of the direct trains, which leave from the main station of Termini and it will take just 20 minutes to get to Frascati.
