Asiago branch of INAF-OAPd (National Institute of Astrophysics, Astronomical Observatory of Padova) and DFA-UniPd (Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Padova), is the ideal place for the direct contact of the public with astronomy and for promoting the scientific research of our Institute.
