Planetario di Roma returns with new cutting-edge technology.
Rome's Planetarium, which offers visitors an immersive astronomical experience, reopens to the public on Friday 22 April after being closed for the last eight years.
The Planetario, housed in the Museum of Roman Civilisation in the EUR district, was inaugurated by Rome's mayor Roberto Gualtieri on Thursday as part of events to celebrate the capital's 2,775th birthday.
The newly-reopened planetarium, equipped with state-of-the-art technology and a programme of interactive experiences for visitors of all ages, was described by Gualtieri as "a magical place to discover the wonders of the universe."
The old optical projector has been replaced by the high-tech "Sky Explorer" offering 4K video resolution "capable of reconstructing the surface of the Earth, Moon and Mars with extreme realism", as well as glimpses of distant galaxies.
Un bellissimo regalo per il compleanno di #Roma la riapertura del #Planetario. Una struttura avanzata, divenuta un vero punto di riferimento per la nostra città che ha una vocazione per la cultura, il sapere e la #scienza. Un luogo magico per scoprire le meraviglie dell’universo. pic.twitter.com/kg9RxOWCJN
