Enrico Fermi Center

Science centre / science museum
Full member

The Museo Storico della Fisica e Centro Studi e Ricerche Enrico Fermi (thereafter, Enrico Fermi Center) has been created to achieve an unrealized ambition of Enrico Fermi. He had hoped to create in his native Italy a facility dedicated to pushing the frontiers of scientific knowledge. The Center intends to realize a Museum of Physics in the same places where Fermi experiments took place, it is to say in the complex of via Panisperna in Rome. The Museum will have an historical part dedicated to Fermi and his research during the thirties, and an interactive part, where the visitors could make experiments by themselves., As well as carrying out research activities in the most advanced sectors of modern Physics, The Enrico Fermi Center promotes the scientific culture and the historical memory with exhibitions and lectures dedicated to the discoveries of Fermi and his collaborators.
