Enrico Fermi Center

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.
