An astronomical theater with a dome of 12 meters wide allows spectators not only to admire a perfect projection of the starry sky but to travel among the stars, to be open to new explorations and influences, enjoying hypnotic paths between the creations of video art.
RomaPlanetario, the new structure that grants its name from the newly discovered asteroid and that is dedicated to this historic structure of the capital, aims to preserve the history and identity of this ambitious Roman project. “La CAsa della Scienza” is at the Ex Dogana of San Lorenzo in a structure that guarantees a wide cultural programme and high-end technology.
The programme, promoted by the “Assessorato alla Crescita culturale”, with scientific management of the “Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali” and the technical-scientific services of Zètema Progetto Cultura, is aimed at diffusing scientific knowledge and know-how about the universe, using the latest and most sophisticated digital technologies to offer us the opportunity to live a unique and multi-sensory audiovisual experience. The structure has been created by MondoMostre Skira and is known for being a flexible and versatile space, for all ages to introduce everyone to science by means of promotional events aimed at astronomical information: courses, discussions, fulldome projections, documentaries, videos, lectures and sky observations led by astronomers.
