Optical astronomy at the Antola Observatory

The Regional Park of Mount Antola has recently installed a telescope of considerable size at the Observatory at Fascia. The University of Genoa has created an interdepartmental center to exploit the telescope for scientific, educational and outreach purposes.

Currently, the research topics that are carried on include: measurements of exoplanets, study of active galactic nuclei, gravitationally-lensed quasars.

In addition, we are setting up remote control rooms at the DIFI and DIBRIS departments to organize events for the general public and activities for the students.
